Tim Bierings versus Wiebe Leverink

In his first match, Tim Bierings faced the tall Wiebe Leverink of Albert Kraus Sport, who was more than a head taller and also 7 kg heavier. Tim started the game fiercely and dominated, so that the tall Wiebe Leverink was only in reverse. Tim came in well a few times and hit that long Wiebe in the face with some hard blows. In the end, the bout was decided by referee intervention in favor of Tim Bierings with a TKO in round 3.

Giel Rutten versus Guner Cicos

Giel faced his third match and this was also the biggest test Giel has had. Giel started strong, but Guner Cicos from Impact Sport Academy remained calm. A number of good combinations and striking hits over and over again. These two boxers gave everything, especially in the last round and especially in the last minute. Giel showed a lot of character by going forward a lot and getting into the fight, putting the opponent against the ropes and winning the jury decision in his favor in this exhausting battle. It was a very nice fight and spectacle of the day.

Gerard Gilles versus Jonas Beniktas

Heavyweight Gerard met the 27 kg heavier Jonas Beniktas of Boksclub Laarbeek here. This match was a battle of attrition for both boxers. Gerard didn't get into the rhythm very well and Jonas' mass was eventually too much, so that it went to Jonas Beniktas on points after the last bell.
