Then, the second round kicked in. In the second minute of the second round, Skelly put on a show. He continuously hit Striegl with his best moves. First, a nice elbow to set up his offense and then a combo right hook. Finally, a knee to the jaw dropped Striegl on the floor. Chas was ferocious as he gave severe punches to Striegl after he dropped.
The referee stopped the matched and ruled Skelly as the winner via technical knock-out.
