less than one minute before the end of 5th round in
this balanced fight, the Greek fighter
Bobolakis was forced to give up due to serious
injury that led him to the hospital; he collapsed
without receiving a prior blow. Thankfully, the
medical report from that same night was that
is none too serious and he is expected to make a
full recovery, being released from
probably within days.
We wish him well soon and hope
to once again see him in the fighting ring soon.
Vangelis Xanthakis had to retire from the ring due
to some knee-injury right from the 1st round. Then,
Katis took over, leading the fight to the premature
end of the 5th round.
Recal Celik is
determined to defend his title in September against
any opponent whatsoever.
