Roberto Soldic Destroys Borys Mankowski At KSW 41 To Win The KSW Welterweight Title
22-year-old Roberto Soldic put on a fantastic display of striking last evening to defeat Borys Mankowski for the KSW welterweight title at KSW 41.
The fight was stopped at the end of the third round when Mankowski was unable to answer the bell for the beginning of the fourth .
Soldic had put the Pole through the ringer for the full 15-minutes before using his patented head kick and left hand to rock him multiple times. Mankowski looked have things on a level playing field in round one, but in round two Soldic went into overdrive and got the better of multiple exchanges where he punished him both to the head and liver.
Mankowski was looking to be a little worse for wear at the end of the second round after receiving some stiff elbows whilst on the mat and with blood running down his face from a cut on the top of the head, the writing looked like it was on the wall from then on.
In round three, Soldic again rocked Mankowski on the feet before the fight hit the ground again. Mankowski desperately looked for a heel hook, but the Croatian easily wriggled out of the position and pulled his leg out of danger before again doing damage from top position.
With the round looking like it was winding down to a close, Soldic landed some huge forearms that pierced Mankowski’s guard. As the bell rung for the end of the round, Mankowski was unable to get to his feet and needed the assistance of his teammates and doctors to get back onto his stool. After the minute was up, Mankowski couldn’t answer the bell and he celebrated wildly on top of the cage.
Soldic then jumped out of the cage and confronted Dricus du Plessis who was sat in the front row at cageside. After a brief verbal altercation the two pushed each other and then security piled in to break it up. Thankfully, calm was then restored and Soldic made his way back into the cage where he was presented with the KSW welterweight title.
What a fine performance by the young Croatian. It was one Mirko Cro Cop would’ve been proud of himself.
