The Hype is Real for Bilal
Bilal Akkawy defeats Kerry Hope after the Welshman is forced to retire due to a broken jaw after seven rounds in one of the best fights seen this year. The 23 year old prospect Akkawy knew the stoppage would come and methodically wore down the 35 year old veteran challenger. The lead-up 10 week camp was the key to mapping out a fight plan that was put to the test by the tough and slightly heavier Hope. The Oceania champ was happy with his display and power and will rest up and enjoy the break before his team decide on what is next for the young gun.
