Nieky “The Natural” Holzken is going to prove again he’s one of the best welterweight strikers in kick boxing.
At the post-fight press-conference Nieky Holzken stated: “I told my little boy and my daughter who are at home watching, and my wife, I said that I would come back with a win and afterward I will come back with the world title, that is mine. Joe Valtellini, I’m going to take it next time.”
While we’re waiting for the rematch why not have a look at the highlights of the first fight? Actually it was a back and forth story with both fighters throwing bombs at each other. With time passing an even battle tilted in Holzken’s favor and in the third round a final drama broke out. That’s just what we have in the offered video – Holzken landed a vicious punch to the liver that hurt Valtellini badly. Still Joe managed to get back in the fight again and unleashed a desperate assault. That was his only chance to turn the tide as he was obviously down on the score cards. But the all or nothing challenge ended in nothing but a perfect counterpunch thrown by Nieky Holzken in the dying seconds of the third round.
