In Manchester he held the match for the title of absolute world champion in craterface, weight category up to 91 kg.
Before the fight experts and fans expected that there will be a protracted battle for 12 rounds, where Sasha has a better chance. As in the previous fight with Murat by Gassieva in the final world Series of Boxing. But there the Mustache was necessary in the first place win. He did and got. In Manchester this night in a fight against local fighter Tony Bellew, a beautiful knockout victory Barbel would have liked to the British public. And Sasha that it wants to please the public. Well, to win and become the new “market” at the same time. This was the main intrigue before the fight: what would you choose Cirrus? Risk – and running into counter-punch, or technically to bring the fight to a convincing victory on points?
Alexander chose the risk. But reasonable. The tendril was not in a hurry, making to worry their fans. He definitely lost the first couple of rounds, and by the 8th round, the score was a draw, and maybe even in favor of Bellew, given the reference to “home refereeing”. But that was the plan, as it turned out. Cirrus retains the freshness and Bellew tired. And missed the kick to the jaw in the 8th round. Ukrainians saw that the opponent is staggered, and stabbed him with a deuce in the jaw, straight right and left side. Bellew fell, and never rose – the knockout!
