The same card also saw Matt Legg (6-1, 2) claim his first victory in almost 5 years as he overcame Czech puncher Radek Linka (4-1, 4). Linka, who went in with a perfect record, paid the price of having never fought a live opponent and was shown up by a fighter who although inactive in recent years knew how to handle himself.
In Slovakia there was action a plenty with a staggering 4 Heavyweight contests on the same show.
The most interesting of the 4 bouts in Slovakia saw Hungarian novice Daniel Kol (2-0, 2) in a scheduled 8 round contest. Kol, who had only had 2 rounds prior to today faced the experienced Zoltan Somosi (12-8, 5) of Romania and stopped him in the 3rd round.
The most notable name on the Slovakian card was Laszlo Toth (18-8, 12) who out pointed "professional loser" Csaba Olah (3-74-3, 2). Olah, fighting for the 80th time, is now winless in over 11 years and has won just once since 1998. There was also a decision victory for Tibor Balogh (3-1-2, 2) who claimed a 4 round points victory over Norbert Szucs (0-2-1).
The remaining contest saw Istvan Ruzsinszky (10-7-1, 7) stopping the undersized Marton Beke (3-11, 1) who was stopped for the seventh time as a professional.
