Mauro Cerilli retains Cage Warriors heavyweight title with 15-second KO of Karl Moore

Karl Moore’s bid to become the first fighter since Conor McGregor to hold two Cage Warriors titles was short lived as he suffered a 15-second knockout at the hands of heavyweight champion, Mauro Cerilli, at Cage Warriors 92 in London on Saturday night.

Light heavyweight champion Moore landed a couple of crisp two-punch combinations before the Italian bowled forward and blasted him with the two lethal right hands, the second of which put him down.

Referee Marc Goddard got in between the fighters quickly as Cerilli looked to add two finishing shots.

The quick win was Cerilli’s first defense of the Cage Warriors heavyweight title.
