  1. Just too strong for daniels
    Daniels made a good fight and gave nieky more troubles than expected.
    Daniels was lightning quick ,but has no hard low licks.
    Nieky is a top boxer
    Good fight!!!

  2. Daniel’s unusual style is good when he fights people with low experience however with Nieky it doesn’t work at all. A kind of repetition of the results observed in their first fight. Nieky is too much for Daniel.

  3. I think Holzken is the #1 in this division but compared to the first fight Daniels improved a lot, he won the second round but unfortunately he was unlucky for the cut. Maybe he could win the glory title in 1 or 2 years….however, in this second bout, holzken’s weapon was his power!!
    Now I hope to see the rematch between Holzken and Valtellini soon!!
