  1. I really like him but I’m a little bit disappointed with the performance of a such good kick boxer as Nieky Holzken is. In my opinion he wasn’t the winner in spite of i don’t like at all Murthel since I consider him a dirty kick boxer. He shows that condition in the second round with a clear rabbit punch. However, i should recognize that in this fight Murthal was cleaner than previous ones.
