The main event featured Youssef Boughanem vs. Payakdam. The Phoenix 7 results were full of too many surprises. Boughanem has been on a tear as of late and didn’t disappoint in this fight. Both fighters were exchanging a variety of strikes early, but Boughanem was getting his strikes off faster. It was a close fight going into the third round, but then Boughanem turned up the pressure.Payakdam offered little offense in the third round and seemed to be trying to survive the barrage of strikes by Boughanem. After absorbing several body kicks and turning his back to Boughanem the referee had seen enough and stopped the fight. With the win, Boughanem retained with Phoneix middleweight title and won the IBF title.
In the night’s co-main event Seksan Or Kwang Muan and Rodlek PK Saenchai went the distance in a fairly even fight. Seksan got the nod the judges to take home the decision win.
