Espoo, Finland - Lightweight Edis Tatli, a supposed non-puncher, stopped Italian challenger Paolo Gassani at 1.26 of the first in the headliner of P 3 Boxing´s dinner show at the Ringside gym in Espoo, Finland, earlier tonight.
"Who said I couldn´t punch," smiled the new EU champ after the fight.
Tatli found the range with his jab early and followed up with a left hook and followed up again and it was stopped with Gassani out on his feet.
In the semi-final, super middleweight Niko Jokinen, another supposed non-puncher, stopped Spaniard Fatah Baghban in the first of a scheduled ten rounder.
