M-1 Challenge XXIII: Zavurov retains WW belt with TKO of Gallicchio
The welterweight title was on the line as champion Shamil Zavurov locked horns with M-1 Selection Americas 2010 champion Tom Gallicchio.
Gallicchio came out aggressive in the first frame and was taken down for his troubles. Zavurov maintained top position for most of the round, pounding on Gallicchio while avoiding the American's active guard.
The two exchanged on the feet to open the second round until Zavurov landed a huge right hand that dropped Gallicchio. Gallicchio attempted to recover while grabbing for Zavurov's leg, but Zavurov remained relentless until the referee had no choice but to call a stop to the fight at 1:11 of the second stanza.
Zavurov retains his welterweight title with the TKO victory. He is expected to make his next title defense on April 28.Source: mmadiehards.com
