Promoter Sampson Lewkowicz wishes to congratulate his undefeated heavyweight powerhouse Magomed "Mago" Abdusalamov (17-0, 17 KOs) for his great victory over former Olympian Victor Bisbal (21-1, 15 KOs) at Resorts Hotel & Casino, Atlantic City, New Jersey, last Friday.
Fighting in the ESPN-televised co-main event, the unbreakable strength of Abdusalamov gradually overcame a spirited effort by the determined Bisbal. The TKO came at 1:12 of round five when Bisbal rose from a knockdown in no shape to continue.
With the victory, Abdusalamov successfully defended his WBC-USNBC Heavyweight Championship for the second time.
"Mago is too strong for anyone to handle," said Lewkowicz. "It is only a matter of time before he catches up to anyone we put in front of him. Victor Bisbal fought well for the first four rounds, but to keep Mago off of you, you have to burn too much energy and eventually you slow down and that's when his power will end the fight."
