The Russian lands a spinning back fist to end the round and pulls a Mohammad Ali with an circling right arm leading to a left jab.
Round has Verlinden on his heels backing away from Levin, but still throwing low kicks that lead to the Russian letting his hands fly. The Belgian’s back is cut up from having pressed against the ropes in both fights tonight.
The third round beings with Verlinden looking drained as Levin tries to toy with him. Spending most of his fights tonight against the ropes, Levin is still willing to bang out a few kicks against the less tired Russian who is letting his hands fly.
This one is going to the judges as Artem Levin moves on to the finals in the Middleweight Tournament!
