|Absolute Adrenaline - Rampage: Strong Debut For Valvo!||| Print ||
Marco Valvo had a blistering start in his White Collar bout against crowd favourite Simon Whiting.
Valvo looked unusually heavy handed and pulled an early right hand out of nowhere, sending Whiting crashing to the canvas for a count. He made it up at 8 and threw himself back into the fight but it was clear that his head was not yet clear.
In the second round Valvo seemed to coast rather than finish the job and on one scorecard at least, he seemed to give the round away.
The same thing happenned in the 3rd and it needed a concerted effort from the ‘in control’ Valvo to make sure of victory.
You couldn’t help thinking that there was a stoppage victory there if Valvo had pressed the fight once he was on top.
However, victory was still his and he now moves on to December’s event!
