Irish sensation Rohan Date gets KO no.9

It was another incredible night of action as the #RotundaRumble3 took place in front of a passionate crowd at Caesars Bluewaters Dubai on Friday.

The massive event was live in the US on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank and worldwide on IFL TV, and featured a number of incredible stoppages and exciting fights.

Aliu Bamidele Lasisi successfully defended his WBC International super-flyweight title after a split draw with Norbelto Jiminez, while there were knockout wins for the likes of Cesar Mateo Tapia, Zhan Kossobutskiy and Nurtas Azhhbenov.

A big upset on the card saw former world champion TJ Doheny suffer a defeat, as he was beaten by Ionut Baluta.

Here’s all you need to know from a fantastic night of action….
