Bulgaria’s Dragomir Petrov suffered his first ever SENSHI loss on Saturday night in Varna, Bulgaria, when SENSHI 10 took place.
Petrov got beat by Romania’s Tudor Potoroaca, with the winner being decided after an extra round. The clash got conducted under the KWU Full Contact ruleset in the -70 kg category.
K-1 MAX royalty Albert Kraus was the special guest referee of the fight.
Potoroaca started off nicely with some good shots, but they all got absorbed by Petrov’s gloves. The Bulgarian answered back with a proper elbow to the face of the Romanian fighter. Drago was the one initiating most of the exchanges, as he was moving way more and was marking his opponent with some beautiful hooks and jabs.
The second and the third round were evenly matched, as neither of the two fighters was establishing his game over the other. Petrov was landing low kicks at ease, while Potoroaca was counterattacking nicely with hooks and body shots of his own.
After nine minutes, the judges’ verdict was an extra round. The Romanian looked like he had more in the tank and was landing the more accurate and powerful shots and in the end his hand got raised.
