On the night of March 31, Alexander Gvozdik (16-0, 13 KO’s) of Philadelphia held its first title defense of world champion under version WBC light heavyweight title. The Ukrainians confidently defeated the Frenchman Doudou Ngumbu (38-8, 14 KO’s).
The battle lasted 5 rounds and ended with a technical knockout of the Frenchman due to a foot injury. Ngumbu could not continue the fight because of the pain.
The first two rounds, the boxers spent in a complete exploration, but Alexander, as title holder, fought the first number.
In the third and fourth rounds were held few punches from Cloves and French. Ngumbu already began to braid more Ukrainian than to worry about the attack.
In the final round Ngumbu stopped dancin’. One of the moments he twisted his ankle. Then he made a face that very upset and almost cried. And did not continue the fight.
We will remind that 31-year-old Alexander Gvozdik won the WBC light heavyweight title on December 1 last year, when in Quebec city (Canada) knocked out veteran Adonis Stevenson in the eleventh round. Immediately after the fight, Stevenson was in the hospital and doctors in an artificial coma to reduce the effects of traumatic brain injury and stroke.
