The ninth bout of the SENSHI 7 fight card saw Bulgaria’s Eduard Aleksanyan squaring off against Serbia’s Ljubo Jalovi.
The WAKO PRO European title (K-1) in the 81.4 kg category was on the line.
The beginning of the fight didn’t foretell the instant classic fight fans were about to get. It was a slow start for both of them as the only notable moment of the opening round was low and body kicks exchange.
As time passed by, the home crowd hero (even though there were no fans) started dictating the pace of the clash, but Jalovi’s plan to initiate a clinch kept the Serbian safe.
The tactical battle was over in the third round who started off with some big-time exchanges. The Bulgarian got hit with a masterful left high kick, but he replied right away with a barrage of heavy punches to the body. Aleksanyan did the same combo again seconds after that and Jalovi found himself knocked down.
