Oktagon 31: Kincl has become the new middleweight champion

Mar 112022

After two long years, Oktagon returned to Prague's O2 Arena on the last weekend of February and offered another exciting tournament with two title battles. The event was attended by more than ten thousand spectators, who filled the maximum allowed capacity of the arena and loudly supported the fighters throughout the evening.

The main match of the tournament for the middle weight belt was dominated by the experienced Czech fighter Patrik Kincl, who defeated the temporary title holder Samuel Krištofič from Slovakia 3-0 on points. The still undefeated Belgian Losene Keita, defeated the popular Slovak fighter Ronald Paradeiser and won the interim lightweight title in a tough five-round battle.

In contrast to the five-round title battles, we witnessed several quick finishes in the first round. The fastest was provided by the Lithuanian Naglis Kanišauskas, who knocked out Jakub Běle after thirteen seconds of the match. The popular Slovak fighter Vlasto Čepo finished in the first round, despite minor problems, the Brazilian Alexandre Silva. Alex Lehoré from France also defeated his opponent Zdeněk Polívka in the first round, by TKO. Jakub Bahník decided the main match of the first card against British Jay Cucciniello in the first round with hard blows.
