Following a series of knockout bouts from Simply the Best 1 Charleroi, the World Kickboxing Network hit the stream with a new video that ended prior to the final bell. The contest features Nordine Saidane and Cyril Joel Missipo squaring off at super welterweight.
During the opening minutes the pair was going head to head, throwing kicks, punches and knees. That was an image seen until Saidane landed right kick to the head followed by one-two combination, dropping his opponent to the canvas.
Missipo beat the eight count and the fight resumed. Yet, a few seconds latter his corner threw-in the towel, indicating the referee to wave the fight off.
