This past Sunday American fans had their best chance to see Kazakh hopeful Kanat Islam (21-0, 18) in action. The unbeaten Light Middleweight was up against the limited, but heavy handed, Juan De Angel (18-4-1, 17) in the main event of a PBC show on "Bounce TV".
The bout saw the unbeaten Islam continue his winning run as he scored a 6th round TKO win over De Angel.
The win was Islam's third in the US and was his first as a main event fighter under the PBC banner. We won't pretend it was the most impressive win of the weekend but it did see Islam show his power and ability as he caught a most significant audience than he has in the past.
Notably Islam was one of several Asian's picking up wins pn the card with with Uzbek hopeful Botirsher Obidov (5-0-1, 1) scoring a decision win over Hakeem Atkinson (2-3, 1) and and Vietnam's Dat Nguyen (18-3, 6) scoring a win over Gustavo Molina (22-11, 9).
