  Christian MBilli Wows In Mexico

Three tigers were fighting in Cuernavaca, Mexico on Punching Grace yesterday evening. The event marked the debut of Christian Mbilli (17-0-0, 16 KOs) as an official member of the Eye of the Tiger Management’s roster. To do this, the one nicknamed "Solid" competed against Rolando Paredes (16-12-2, 11 KOs). The latter has already faced Erik Bazinyan (25-0-0, 19 KOs) in addition to having offered a war to Nurzat Sabirov (11-0-0, 9 KOs) and Lexson Mathieu (9-0-0, 8 KOs) last December. It was with devastating attacks and precise punches that Mbilli managed to defeat Paredes by referee stoppage in the third round. Despite the altitude, Mbilli managed to maintain an intense rhythm throughout the bout leaving Paredes no chance to land punches.

“I am satisfied with my performance despite the altitude. My opponent was quite powerful, but he also quite predictable. I was able to adapt well and I am happy to have ended the fight this way,” said Christian Mbilli following his victory on Punching Grace’s platform.

In addition to this fight, Luis Santana (2-0-0, 1 K.-O.) managed to defeat his opponent, Alexander Calixto (1-1-0, 1K.-O.), by decision. Despite Calixto's unorthodox style, Santana managed to stick to the game plan of his coach, Vincent Auclair, to win every round of the bout against a tough opponent who displayed great power. Avery Martin-Duval (4-0-1, 3 K.O.), had to be content himself with a draw against Esteban Hernandez (2-2-1). The one nicknamed "The Future" started the fight well by hitting his opponent with many power strikes, but he experienced some difficulty adapting to Hernandez’s rambling and aggressive style.

“I'm a little disappointed with the outcome of the fight, but it's a good thing it happened early in Avery's career. We see it as experience and we go back to the gym knowing what we need to change to come back stronger,”said Martin-Duval’s coach Jessy Thompson.

Boxing fans who watched the event on Punching Grace also had a bonus since the gala’s main event between Brandon Brewer (25-1-1, 11 KOs) against Alvaro Enriquez (14-24 -2, 5 K.-O.) was broadcast. In this duel, Brewer overpowered Enriquez with excellent variation in hits to both the body and head throughout the 6 rounds. The Canadian who is nicknamed "L-Jack" thus managed to sign his 25th victory with a unanimous decision to conclude the second edition of the COMMANDO formula presented on Punching Grace.

This adventure on foreign soil was, once again, a great success and made it possible to offer boxing fans the possibility of following EOTTM’s boxers closely by being included behind the scenes and feeling the emotions and the impact of the devastating blows of every bout.
