Bosnia and Hercegovina’s Ahmed Krnjic marked his SENSHI return with a hard-fought victory over Netherlands’ Bader Ferdaous.
The fight was conducted under the KWU Full Contact in the +95 kg category.
SENSHI 8 took place at Hotel “Marinela” in Sofia, Bulgaria, producing 10 excellent fights. Krnjic got the W after an extra round was needed, mainly to the fact that it was a well-rounded match-up with lots of ups and downs.
It was a slow start by both guys, measuring and playing it safe in the first round. Bader was the one trying to throw the harder punches, but Krnjic was always on the move displaying his excellent defense.
Krnjic landed a beautiful mae geri, sending Ferdaous to the canvas for a knockdown. Bader’s answer was right on point and after some heavy blows, he managed to score a knockdown of his own.
The second and the third round were more of the same. Both fighters looking to pinch their opponent every chance they get. Krnjic’s low kicks sounded brutal, but Ferdaous showcased some excellent defensive movements and rarely was exposed to a real danger.
The third round was the best round the Balkan fighter had, scoring three knockdowns after some well-placed shots to the head and the body. It was the correct call by the judges to add an additional round in which Bader’s fatigued caught up to him and Krnjic was the one with the better and harder punches and kicks.
SENSHI 8 is being conducted with the assistance of the KWU International Professional League, chaired by Shihan Ivo Kamenov, as well as with the special support of Armeec Insurance JSC, MAX Sport, Bulgaria AIR and BMW-M car.
