Kolding, Denmark - The main event of this TK Promotion, a scheduled ten rounder made at super middleweight between Jacob Bank (8-0) and Rafael Bejaran (30-8-1), ended in a disappointing TKO win for Bank as Bejaran retired with a shoulder injury after the first round.
The aging but still capable veteran made Bank, a good prospect, miss in the first round showing some slick moves but didn't make him pay and the Dane seemed to be coming on strong late in the round.
Bejaran seemed to be in pain as he returned to his corner and his cornerman, former cruiserweight champion and heavyweight contender Juan Carlos Gomez, called the referee over and waved the fight off ending what shaped to be an interesting fight,
Ditlev Rossing (15-0) came back after a long layoff and knocked out Bosnian Elvis Smajlovic (15-14-2) with a left hook to the body at 1.29 into the third of a scheduled eight-rounder made at cruiserweight.
Smajlovic quickly realized that Rossing was too much for him and his best did to survive and it became a messy wrestling match but the steady pressure from the Dane paid off and as Smajlovic tired Rossing got him with that body punch.
Cruiserweight Jeppe "Pain Train" Moller Christensen (5-1) stopped British debutant Andy Goy, a 41 year old with a tattooed face, who went down early in the first round of a mismatch. Goy was hurt by a right, then another and was out of it as he went down and the referee waved it off at 1.27.
Super welterweight Mikkel Nielsen (10-2) returned after a long layoff and looked good as he stopped Venhar Haziri (5-4-2) from Kosovo at 1.19 of the fourth round of a scheduled six rounder.
Nielsen came out storming in the fourth and got Haziri under pressure with heavy hooks from both hands. Venhar retreated into his own corner, stopped firing back and was taking a beating when the referee stepped in at 1.19 for a timely stoppage.
In the show opener welterweight Khybar Akbari (1-0-1) stopped Kosovan debutant Arlind Hysenaj (0-1). Hysenaj was under pressure in the second and didn't come out for the third of a scheduled four-rounder with a claimed arm or hand injury as reason.
