First round knockout win for Mitko Iliev against Ehsan Sajed

The National palace of culture and sports erupted into a frenzy after Mitko Iliev knocked out Ehsan Sajed in the first round of their KWU Open fight at SENSHI 15.

The Bulgarian started on a high tempo and didn’t back up until his opponent was floored by the ropes. There only the intervention of Shihan Semmy Schilt saved the Dutchman from more severe injuries.

Iliev continued the positive trend for the Bulgarians after Dragomir Petrov’s victory against Aydin Aslan earlier that evening.
