Due to the time zone's the earliest of the action in Slovakia where 2 Heavyweight contests took place. We believe the first of those was between Zoltan Somosi (14-9, 6) and the experienced Csaba Olah (4-77-3, 3). Scheduled over the 6 round distance Somosi took a decision victory inflicting the fifth loss this year for Olah. Aged 46 years Olah seems to be picking up paydays with ease at the moment due to his eagerness to get in the ring, even if he does tend to lose. Somosi on the other hand will be happy to pick up his second victory of the year, even if it has been joined with 4 losses.
In the other contest in Slovakia we saw a bit of an upset as the hard hitting Daniel Kol (6-3, 5) suffered his second successive loss. Taking on former rival Vasil Mandea (3-4, 2) Kol, who had lost in their first meeting, was stopped in 3 rounds. This may be a case of Mandea being a bogeyman to Kol, in the same way that Jerry Pahayahay was to Pongsaklek Wongjonkam, though is more likely to suggest that Kol just isn't very good.
Over in the US, where we had the the remaining bout, fans saw Daniel Pasciolla (2-1) in action. Pasciolla managed to out point the tough but limited Lonnie Kornegay (1-10-2) over the 4 round distance. This was Kornegay's sixth straight decision loss. Despite losing frequently we do feel that the 35 year Kornegay could trouble novice prospects, at least if he comes in in shape, unfortunately however he was 20lbs above his best and it showed as he looked sluggish. At 28 Pasciolla does have potential though really needs to show it in more convincing performances than this.
