Official Result: Davey Grant def. Louis Smolka via KO (punches) at :49 of round three

Both Grant and Smolka come out with a furious pace, but it’s Grant who’s getting the better of the striking early on.

Starting with his leg kicks, two of which buckled Smolka’s legs, and he’s also using his front kick up the middle in order to keep distance. Grant then begins to sit down on his punches, as we know him to do.

Grant is landing some heavy hooks in the middle and at the end of his combinations, and he’s busting Smolka’s face up. He starts to go to the body toward the end of the round, opening up Smolka’s head even more.

Grant drops Smolka with a jab and ends the first round on top.

After an exciting first round, Smolka comes out in round two with a much more violent gameplan, walking Grant down and splitting his guard opportune elbows.

Smolka also returns a lot of leg kicks in this round, and it appears Grant used a considerable amount of energy in round one. He’s breathing a little heavier now and his shots are becoming more and more labored.

Grant lands another nasty leg kick in the third and again buckles Smolka’s leg.

Smolka then shoots on a desperate double leg and ends up on his back, where he eats a few nasty punches and is knocked unconscious.
