Absolute Championship Berkut somehow pulled it out the bag yet again, as another inexperienced and unknown ‘Young Eagles’ card took shape and delivered exciting and fast paced action from start to finish on last night’s ACB 64 which was also the 19th installment of the ‘Young Eagles’ series.
ACB 64 saw the Russian promotion arrive in Turkey for the first time as the show took place in Kemer Goynuk Ataturk Kapali Spor Salonu in Antalya, Turkey. The card featured Turkish talent throughout the card, many of whom were making their debuts, and would suffer from mixed fortunes.
One clear fight of the night was when Nashko Galaev took on Dennis Mutsnek as the two bantamweight prospects collided in a back-and-forth thriller.
Galaev was choked out in the very first round of the fight when the referee checked his arm and it appeared to be limp. However the referee let the fight continue and by miracle, Galaev regained consciousness and lived to see the end of the round.
The following round, Galaev came out firing and knocked his opponent out with a vicious knee. Watch the bizarre action below…
