Boy, this man packs some power in his punches, especially on those uppercuts.
Really an entertaining and competitive fight displaying excellent punch combinations from both sides. Daigo is a very strong puncher supported also by very sound skills. He did an intelligent and excellent body work which shows up on the final rounds however his punches at the head ended the fight earlier. Daigo in the short distance is an unbeatable fighter because is quite fast and connects punches all over with excellent accuracy. Thomas put a really good fight in the first half but was was overwhelmed in the second part.
