In spite of connecting very nice power punches and using good combinations Marco wasn’t able to stop the Turkish’s bulldog who didn’t cease even for a minute with his overwhelming attach. The fight was really close.
Very entertaining fight! Yildirim reminded me a bit of another supermiddleweight Arthur Abraham with his peekaboo guard and straight foward offensive style. I think he could stay in Mexico and build himself a fanbase there with this macho style of boxing.
Periban showed that he had stamina, despite the body fat. He may be better off exchanging coloured gloves for white traffic ones. His flag waving style ensures that there is little power in his punches, plenty of volume but also lacking in reaction time. Very entertaing fight from the get go, I thought it was just a matter of time before Avni wore him down. its just as well that neither fighter had a glass jaw or we would have missed a good fight.
