Roberto Soldic strengthened his ever-growing status as a noted knockout artist with a looping left hand that rendered Vinicius Bohrer unconscious at KSW 46 Saturday in Gliwice, Poland.
“Robocop” backed up Bohrer from the first bell. He looked to be on the verge of stopping the fight at the midway point of the first, but chose to stand up instead of continuing his grounded onslaught after knocking the Brazilian down.
With less that 30 seconds left on the clock, Soldic’s patented left hand detonated on contact with Bohrer’s head, immediately bringing the contest to a close.
The KSW welterweight champion’s meeting with the Brazilian was only officially announced two weeks ago, replacing Borys Mankowski vs. Bruce Souto, which was pulled from the card due to a Mankowski injury. Instead of fighting at welterweight, the duo agreed to a catchweight of 176 pounds.
