Smith Defeats Beausejour at World-class Gathering


Toby Smith earns judges decision over Johane Beausejour in the world-class main event of Nemesis 11 Perth on Saturday 21st May.

Australian Toby ‘The Weapon’ Smith and French Johane ‘Magician’ Beausejour headlined eleventh edition of Nemesis Fight Shows at Kingsway Stadium, Madeley, WA. The world-class WKN muaythai intercontinental challenge was scheduled for five-by-three minute rounds in the middleweight category. The local crowd expected ‘The Weapon’ to stop his vis-a-vis much earlier the final bell. However, the Top 2 French competitor traveled to Australia aiming an upset.

The bout has seen a war. The arsenal included everything from all-round power shots to spinning-back kicks, featuring jumping-knees and downward elbows. Smith traditionally worked on the front-foot putting on a pressure. Beausejour moved a lot, paying back in equivalence. One of the highlights saw an eight count at the end of round four. Aussie landed an elbow to the face that dropped Frenchman to the canvas. Nevertheless, he managed to recover, and came out strong enough to finalize the last three minutes. The first half of the final round saw the powerful body shots when Australian ‘Weapon’ dominated the body of ‘Magician’ Frenchman. The second half predominantly showcased an exchange of solid kicks. After five rounds of action the judges score cards (50-43, 50-44, 50-43) pronounced Australian Toby Smith as the winner of the contest.

The semi-main event at Nemesis 11 Perth has titled two new Australian champions. Bevan Mahoney has taken a knockout victory over Riacrdo Pisaneschi in welterweight division. Chadd Collins earned the points decision over Parviz Iskenderov in the super-lightweight category. The last is looking for a rematch option as soon as possible.

Nemesis 11 Perth proclaimed a status of a celebrity gathering. The show has seen the ‘King of Carnage’ Nathan Corbett presenting on the night as the WKN official. UFC fighter Jake Matthews ventured to WA from Victoria to attend the event as a special guest. Moreover, the legends John Wayne Parr and Daniel ‘The Rock’ Dawson announced their third battle to happen later on this year.

An outstanding WKN gala was brought by Patrick Talbot and Bill Seth. The event aired live on pay-per-view internationally. It is scheduled for a broadcast on FOX Sports this June. Main card results are presented below.
