If that wasn’t enough… Mozny continued his performance in August the same year. Battling it out in the city of “Rich and Famous” he threw a series of punches followed by a knee, yet was tagged by left hook of Thomas Vanneste, which resulted in mouthguard flying.

“The Giant Slovak” concluded his attack with a kick and then… following a bit of juggling he successfully caught his mouthpiece and bowed to the VIP audience, which included Hollywood actor Mickey Rourke, among others. You can watch it for yourself below. Furthermore, Mozny came out victorious taking all four-man knockout tournament.
