Russia’s Muay Thai star Artem Pashporin defeated Belarus’ Farhad Akhmejanau at yesterday’s SENSHI 8 fight night.
The event took place at Hotel “Marinela” in Sofia, Bulgaria.
Pashporin won the contest via UD after the fight went on full distance. The fight was conducted under the KWU SENSHI rules in the -70 kg category.
It was a slow start for both of them, as they were not ni a hurry to throw combos. As time went by, the Muay Thai specialist from Russia started to press forward and to land his low and body kicks.
Farhad attempts to push back Pashporin was working just a little bit and the Russian wasn’t allowing him to be pushed back by a counter. Akhmejanau, two-time Belarus national champion, was way more active in the second round, but Pashporin was exploiting the mistakes he was seeing in his opponent.
Artem managed to land some big left and right hooks and demonstrated elite skills with his outside game when needed. The final part was once again all Pashporin who had the better cardio, also, and finished strong his UD victory.
That was Pashporin’s second consecutive win under the SENSHI banner, while Farhad lost his promotional debut.
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.
