Yang Hae-Jun crowned middleweight champion at ROAD FC 54

ROAD FC has a new middleweight champion.

Yang Hae-Jun has defeated La In-Jae to claim the ROAD FC middle tile in spectacular form.

Both men went toe-to-toe over two rounds, in a slugfest peppered with grueling clinch work.

Yang was able to take the back early in the second and controlled most of the round from that position. La was visibly exhausted and unable to fight him off. Yang capitalised with ground and pound until the referee stepped in to call it off.

The 31-year-old Yang becomes the seventh middleweight champion for the organisation and moves his record to 13-6. La loses for the first time in his career and drops to 8-1-1.

One Punch KO

Middleweight newcomer Choi Won-Jun stunned the crowd when his very first punch landed perfectly on previously undefeated Hwang In-Su, knocking him down and causing the referee to jump in.

Choi knockout created a new record for ROAD, taking the fastest KO (5 seconds) in ROAD FC history.

Opening the main card was a bantamweight match. Jang Ik-Hwan came out swinging for a knockout, but Jung Sang-Jin was durable and wouldn’t go down. Jang came away with the deserved unanimous decision.

In the opening match, Kim Jin-Kuk and Park Sung-Jun were extremely aggressive and entertaining, and Kim narrowly one the split decision after punches in bunches.
