John Salter would take the fight to the distance against his opponent Costello van Steenis. He wins unanimously on the scorecards and states that his opponent hit harder than anyone he has ever been hit by.
“King Mo” Muhammad Lawal appeared in his final fight, coming out of an early retirement, to be knocked out early in the first round against Andrew Kapel.
What an incredible first round head kick knockout early on in the preliminary portion of the card as Christian Edwards put Cesar Bennett to sleep in just 16 seconds.
