The Fight Breakdown

Despite facing a very good and experienced opponent whose experience allowed him to try and neutralise the boxer’s strengths, especially by maintaining distance, Aleksejevs’ dominance was established from the off, with several nice, nerve-settling blows to the body of Veron, which set the tone for the rest of the bout. He knocked down his opponent in the fourth with a powerful right cross, and finished the latter rounds strongly, stopping just short of knocking him out.

Despite facing some difficulties in the clinch, the Hurricane used his expertise to retain a good fighting distance, and his authority only grew as the rounds wore on, catching him with more and more blows. Veron’s punches weren't particularly threatening, but he often drew The Hurricane into a clinch and succeeded at times.

The scorecards, however, reflected The Hurricane’s superiority, as the judges had it 60-53, 60-53 and 60-54, securing a majority verdict and another comfortable victory.

The Hurricane was delighted with his display and the challenge it represented, commenting after the fight:

“I thoroughly enjoyed this fight. Facing a strong opponent with a fiery spirit and a hefty punch was precisely what I needed. It was crucial to remain mentally tough and not let him dominate.” 

The Hurricane added that he felt he grew into the fight, and could have stopped it earlier than the final bell:

“Knocking him down was immensely satisfying. Towards the end, I realised how I could fight even better against him. I had to lose that tension and I believe I did that well in the last round.”

Now, he plans to recurperate ahead of his next challenge and is excited: 
”Now I just wish to rest and recover. I feel that the most thrilling times in my boxing career are still ahead, and today, I felt that I could achieve a great deal. It was an exhilarating experience, and I am now eager to continue my journey.”

There are hopes in the Hurricane's camp that victory will further speed along his ascent, and a title opportunity feels close now. On current form, Aleksejevs feels like he can beat anyone. His coach Igor Mesmer considers the fight a valuable lesson from a tough Argentine who could both clinch and punch. He is overall very happy with The Hurricane's performance and rates it 9.5 out of 10. The team is now heading home to improve and work on their mistakes.
