Larsen KOéd in 4 !
Unbeaten British light heavyweight Luke Blackledge (10-0, 4 KOs) scored a career best-win when he stopped Mads Larsen (51-4, 38 KOs) in round four on Saturday night in Herning, Denmark.
Blackledge has no amateur-experience, and it showed, he is unschooled but very aggressive.
Larsen did well in the opening round controlling Blackledge with his jab, and several good left shots to the body.
But in round two Larsen got cut over his left eye by an accidential headbutt. It seemed to turn the Englishman on and he increased his unschooled attacks, fighting hard, pressing a tired an old-looking Larsen who didn’t succeed to keep the Brit away with his jab. Larsen was´nt moving well, but after three rounds he was still ahead on the cards. In round four Blackledge pressured a flat-footed Larsen to the ropes, and the Dane went down from three hard shots to the head. Larsen looked like he could get up, but decided to stay down. The referee counted him out at 1:20 of the round.
