The Monegasque fighter (-63.5kg) claimed his eighth professional victory on Saturday evening at the Chapiteau de l’Espace Fontvieille

It was a long wait. With no fewer than ten fights scheduled at the Monaco Boxing Grand Prix, the evening of boxing lived up to all its promises right through to the early hours.

He didn’t step into the ring until after midnight, but it only took Hugo Micallef one round to defeat Denis Bartos (now 20 fights, 12 wins and 8 losses), delivering a knockout blow to his opponent’s stomach, from which the Czech fighter was unable to get back up.

An overwhelming victory for the 25-year-old boxer, in front of his family, friends and AS Monaco defender Guillermo Maripan, that bodes well for the future.
