Filip Hrgović vs. Emir Ahmatovic
MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, USA – 4 December 2021
Croatian Heavyweight sensation Filip Hrgović (14-0, 12 KOs) continued his World Title charge last night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas with a three round beatdown of the previously undefeated Emir Ahmatovic (10-1, 7 KOs).
‘El Animal’ had the Serbian-born German down twice in the second round before finishing the fight in the third to defend his IBF International Title and remain on course for an IBF World Title final eliminator next year.
“From the opening bell, I knew he wasn’t on my level,” said Hrgović. “It was a matter of time before he was going down. I took my time. I didn’t rush. He went down twice in the second round and by the third round I knew he was finished. This is why I want big fights. Then you will see my true potential.”
Promoter Nisse Sauerland said: “That was another great performance from Filip. Credit to Ahmatovic, he came to fight, but ultimately, he was outclassed. The search is now on for an opponent to face Filip in an IBF World Title final eliminator early next year. Zhilei Zhang’s name has been mentioned. That is a fight we like and one we would be confident of winning.”
