When Anthony Holmes and Darren Hendry stepped into the ring for their co-featured bout for the BKFC UK Cruiserweight Title, it was only a matter of time before one man would be crowned champion.
A native of the United Kingdom, Holmes (4-0-1) came out strong in round one, landing a series of powerful punches against Hendry (5-1). But Hendry's superior athleticism allowed him to take control of the fight in round two and land a series of power shots that would end up being the difference in this fight.
Holmes would turn the tables in round three by controlling the action against a more defensive Hendry. But opening up round four, it was Holmes who landed a huge right hand dropping Hendry as the fight was stopped at 0:29 mark of the round. With this win, Holmes wins his first major title belt while Hendry remains undefeated. What does Holmes want next? To train at Jackson Wink in the USA.
