ACB 86 (May 5, 2018)
Denis Kanakov Vs Abdul Azim Badakhshi
Winner – Denis Kanakov Via Round 1 KO
ACB’s biggest event of the year (possibly of all time) took place today. The card featured three title fights, eight finishes and a whole lot of beautiful violence. From this card three finishes stood-out above the rest. The first of these three finishes came in the opening bout of the night between Denis Kanakov and Abdul Azim Badakhshi.
This was a great matchup between two promising prospects that resulted in an entertaining fight, while it lasted. Leading up to this card I was extremely interested in this particular matchup due to the recent performances of both men. After dominating the majority of the fight and finishing with a spectacular knockout, it is clear that Denis Kanakov is currently the better fighter and the more promising prospect.
