Co-Main Event:  Daniel Dubois vs. Kevin Lerena  – Heavyweight 

Dubois opened the bout with a feeble left jab in an effort to get himself moving, maintaining his distance from Lerena, who was having a tough time trying to enter range.

Then with things looking steady, Lerena dropped Dubois on two occasions, with the Brit staggering to his feet on the bell in a third knockdown.

Dubois looked to have a problem with his ankle as he glanced at it. The consequence was trouble moving around, and his punches were landing short.

Lerena continued to be aggressive as Dubois sought to regain confidence. But as the round ended, Dubois threw a solid right to remind everyone he was not going away.

The third round went completely on its head. With Dubious reeling, he threw a flurry of punches with Lerena, this time getting up from the count. As Lerena went into survival mode, Dubois ended this pulsating match to score a TKO win.

Pure class from Dubois, who looked all out of sorts after being dropped on three occasions in the first round.

Official Result: Daniel Dubois def. Kevin Lerena by TKO in the third round

 

Yvan Mendy vs.  Denys Berinchyk– Light Heavyweight

Both fighters were engaged in a fierce battle from the off, with body shots to the other on the ropes. Berinchyk was putting on a good show, attempting to get the better of his opponent.

The Ukrainian’s style of switching between punches proved to be successful, as he was dictating the pace. He appeared unaffected by his extended absence from the ring.

Meanwhile, Mendy exhibited excellent technique, baiting his opponent into making mistakes by drawing him forward for a better second round.

Berinchyk was still leading at the beginning of the fourth round, as Mendy was trying to hit his opponent with the right hand. A notable punch to the back of the head got Mendy’s attention, though.

Berinchyk was clearly in control, outscoring Mendy, who could only land isolated punches. It was clear the Frenchman needed to increase the work rate.

At the midway point, it was a more balanced round, with both fighters having their share of successes, though Mendy had the more accurate strikes. Mendy began to box, as his corner was more pleased than before, with the champion gaining a determined grip.

Since Mendy became more adept at trading, the rounds became more competitive. Berinchyk was still in the bout, but the advantage established in the earlier rounds became less pronounced.

Berinchyk began to give Mendy a more challenging time in the ninth round, exhibiting faster combinations. It was a lot better, as the Ukrainian finished the round with two consecutive counterpunches.

With the 10th round looming, Mendy had to be more explosive. There were sharper shots from the Frenchman, but he struggled to land them regularly.

In doing so, Mendy was knocked to the ground, but the ref deemed it a push as the Ukrainian received a telling-off. In the championship rounds, Berinchyk continued with more strikes without Mendy sending back any real danger.

The Ukrainian outworked his opponent and earned a unanimous points decision victory, leaving his compatriot Oleksandr Usyk delighted in the crowd.

Official Result: Denis Berinchyk def. Yvan Mendy by UD-117-112, 116-112, 116-112
