The AXS TV-televised muay Thai promotion touched down Friday at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn., and the KOs came in all forms.
In the main event, welterweight champion Regian Eersel (47-4) picked up a fifth-round knockout victory over Matous Kohout (36-10) with the help of punches, elbows and knees from all angles.
However, the undercard also finished featured some nifty knockouts. Super lightweight Jafar Toshev (2-0) stopped Jonathan George (2-3) with a jumping head kick, and super middleweight Cris Mims (1-0) halted Brian Bogue (0-1) with a spinning elbow.
