ZILDZIC Vs CHAFAY in Tuzla (Bosnia and Herzegovina) 23/05

On last Friday, May 23rd in city of Tuzla was held WAKO PRO event "Night of Champions VII" during which main event was WAKO PRO prestige fight in low kick division under 86 kg.
Fight was between Abderrahim Chafay from France, WAKO PRO World Champion in low kick, 85 kg, and former champion in this class Salko Zildzic (BiH).
Two years ago Chafay defeated Salko in Tuzla for this title by knock out in second round.
This time it was not title fight, just prestige, but not ordinary prestige fight; it was the last fight of great Champion, former WAKO and WAKO PRO World Champion Salko Zildzic.
In front of 4.000 spectators the event was great with a lot of good fights with fighters from Bosnia, Turkey and Serbia.
Main fight started very slow in first round. There was a lot of respect between two great fighters.
At the end of first round they started to exchange very heavy punches and kicks.
Second round was beginning of the war. Chafay was down after hard punch and referee Goran Simurina decided to give him eight count. After one strong low kick of Salko which was blocked by Chafay both of them had injury on their legs.
It was not clear if they were able to continue.
In third round war continued and Chafay was down again after couple of tremendous punches by Salko. He got another eight count. He tried to come back but Salko was to good for him and next punch finished story... he was down again and referee counted him off.
It was great fight, real war, and Salko has proved once again that he is still Champion like he was for many, many years...
