Uganda’s Willy Kyakonye eased past Croatia’s Mario Jagatic with a first round knock out in a brawl held at Recreation Zevenkampse Ring, Rotterdam, Netherlands.

In what was expected to be a close fight, Kyakonye, now based in Netherlands, did not give his opponent a chance.

He picked his moment just at the start to produce an eye catching display that sent the Croat down in an awkward fall in a fight that was supposed to last for six rounds.

Kyakonye showed vigour right from the start, he was impressive and very brutal – a true portray of his nickname – The Ring Tiger.

He dominated the bout with combinations onto Jogatic’s head, he pummeled him with quick hooks that left him wobbling to the ground before forcing referee Gerard Stuifzand to stop the fight.

This is the second fight for Kyakonye who has won both, with as many Knockouts. He recently battered Gino da fonseca on March 19 last year.
