Friday, June 1st: Tonight’s Kunlun Event in mesmerizing Macau was all about one man and that man was the classy Superbon from Banchamek gym.
He went into this evening’s eagerly awaited fight against Belorussian gladiator Dzianis Zuev with the weight of the world on his shoulders — quite a few people saying he was maybe out to pasture — resulting from his demoralizing defeat to Marat Grigorian on Kunlun 69, back in February.
Tonight he answered his critics with a classy, elegant and poised performance against formidable Zuev: out-thinking, outwitting and out-gunning his opponent with a continuous barrage of powerful piercing knees and venomous body-kicks.
From start to finish, Superbon put the pressure on Zuev, not giving his opponent anytime to get going — he left his Belorussian opponent bloodied and bruised — by the the time the final bell rang you could see Belorussian knew he came up against Superbon on the wrong night.
The five ringside judges scored the contest: 30-27, 30-27, 30-27, 30-29 and 30-28.
Another shining light on this evening’s show was Kazakhstan fighter Mergen ‘GGG’ Bilyalov. The 26-year old dominated his Chinese opponent, Huang Kai, with a ruthless display of deadly precision and exquisite ring prowess.
The three ringside judges scored the contest: 29-29, 28,30 and 29,30 for a majority decision for the Kazakhstan combatant.
