Dzevad Poturak (BiH), new LK World champion Kg +94,00

On last Friday, August 15, 2014 a WAKO PRO World title bout in low kick, + 94 kg was promoted in Zenica, a small city of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Event was held in Zenica Arena, beautiful sport center in front of 3.000 spectators. Champion, Abderhmane Coulibaly from France came to Zenica only with one goal, to defend his title. He knew that it would have been very hard since he had to face Dzevad Poturak, very famous and fighter with great experience from Bosnia. Dzevad Poturak, during his long carrier fought with many K1 superstars and, on last K1 WGP final held in Zagreb he lost in semi final against Ismael Londt.
Fight started slowly with couple of good low kicks from Poturak.
Coulibaly tried to keep distance and to avoid close fighting with very strong Poturak. Poturak was more aggressive and he reached Champion with couple of solid body shots. Champion found the way to keep the distance and he was very good with long distance punches. Couple of them reached Poturak's head and stopped him. Almost at the end of first round high kick came out of nowhere and made small cut on Poturak's head.
From the start of second round Poturak decided to go forward to try to bring the fight in close distance. In one of these exchanges of punches he made a solid overhand with his right hand and this punch stopped Champion and slowed him down. Another one came just after couple of seconds. Champion tried to move and keep Poturak on distance but in the second half of round Poturak cut the distance and another punch came like a bomb to Champion's head. That was the end. Coulibaly was frozen in the air and he felt down on his back. Referee could only count him off and call for medical assistance...
