The Larissa native got the desired result last night in Toronto, defeating his opponent, Justin Blades, in a six round fight at a 158 lbs catchweight. The judges' decision was unanimous, with scores of 60-53 on all three cards.
"I am very pleased with my performance. It was a very, very tough fight, and I had a knockdown right at the end of the first round, when the opponent almost fainted on the ropes, but the bell did not let me finish him", he said, speaking exclusively to inthering.gr.
Asked on what's next, he said that his next fight will be most likely in September, but does not know more details at the moment.
