WBC INDIA NATIONAL TITLE – BOXING WARRIORS IN THE RING
It was an epic battle between the 2 men, who stood toe-to-toe from the first bell and slugged it out for all 10 rounds. The Delhi lad Satnam, dominated the early rounds, but the Maharashtrian Amey Nitin, fought back to take a couple of the middle rounds.
It was a fight that could have gone either way, but the 25-year-old Satnam who improved to 10 Wins and 1 loss after this fight was impressive from the onset as he closed the distance and controlled the ring, using clearly superior boxing skills.
“I really had to earn it. The last three rounds were tough, I was ahead, but I had to stay and remain calm.” said Satnam at the end of the Fight.
Amey Nitin, was in deep water from the start as he tried to evade the guile and quick jabs of his opponent. The 26-year-old banker from Pune, now has 7 wins, 5 losses after this fight. He made an impressive comeback in the 6th round with strong punches and counter attacks, but it was a case of too little too late. Amey was disappointed by the result, but he knew that he hadn’t done enough to win the fight.
