What a great, what a great fight man uh this kid put his heart into it uh you know, donovan was always expected to feed him, but the style in which he did so was impressive.
You know he’s trained by andy lee and this andy lee trained stylist looked at home under the added spotlight provided by sky sports and showed just why he is held in such a high regard on this undercard of the josh taylor, jack counterall, fight uh.
You know it was a jaw-dropping and tougher test uh that will come to him uh, but he showcased all of his skills when he broke down a gutsy and ultra defensive, uh serban.
So honestly, man uh this limited fighter.
He carried a hand niggle into six rounder.
Eventually, scored a six round stoppage win before celebrating honestly guys, what a great fight to see man you want to check it out.
