Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong vs. Davit Kiria
Sitthichai Winner by Unanimous Decision
Round 3 - 3:00
The third time was not the charm for Davit Kiria. The Georgian striker was not able to master Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong, and the Thai star flew through all three rounds virtually unscathed.
Sitthichai credited Kiria’s improvement in the post-match interview, but nobody would have noticed by how well Sitthichai shut down his offense and scored during their three-round battle. The talented featherweight advances to the final and meets Chingiz Allazov.
