Croatian Featherweight Arijan Goricki TKOs Suat Laze in Zagreb

PhilBoxing.com





Rising featherweight Arijan Goricki of Croatia stopped Suat Laze of Italy in the 8th round of their 10-round scheduled fight at the Zagreb Fair Pavillion 18 in Croatia's northwestern capital Zagreb.

Below is Goricki's report of the fight:

From the 1st round I started to implement the tactics I made with my coach, but I immediately shook the opponent and went to knock him out, then all the tactics fell into the water and the match turned into a real fight in which probably everyone present and people on small screens could enjoy.

Namely, when I started throwing a lot of blows towards Laze, Laze started to return strongly and hit me hard in the counter, at that moment, at the end of the 1st round, the fight became extremely demanding and we exchanged a lot of blows. In the 2nd round I tore my right fist when I hit Laze in the forehead, I just kept working and reduced the hitting with my right hand.
In the 4th round, Laze found himself on the floor after I hit him in the liver, he was out of balance and fell and got a count. In the middle of the 4th round I hit Laze in the right elbow and his elbow cracked and his arm was torn but that only made Laze angry and he bit his gum shield and started fighting even harder and he didn't want to give up. Laze was a more awkward opponent with one hand than when he had both as he constantly changed his stance and threw strong punches.

In the 8th round, I finally managed to hit Laze's right elbow again, and at that moment, the elbow completely cracked and the judge stopped the fight.



Laze was taken away by ambulance and had to have emergency arm surgery. Luckily, my fist didn't break completely and I just have to rest with it for the next 10 odd days and it will be fine.

I think I could easily have boxed all 10 rounds and kept Laze at a distance but I always want to give people a spectacle and a good fight for ordinary people who don’t follow boxing. I am happier that the fight turned into a brawl and not a boxing match because I gained a lot more experience like this than if I moved around and won all 10 rounds with my left jab. I wanted to box all 10 rounds but when the opportunity arises it should not be missed, you never know what the next round brings.

Thanks to team Laze for accepting the fight, it was a pleasure to share the ring with the veteran. My team and I want a speedy recovery for Suat.

I would like to thank everyone who came and supported me live. I am sorry that more people did not attend and give me support but I understand that I am still not a big enough name but I want to change that, as my name will soon be mentioned in the big fights in which I belong.

For all the people who did not have the opportunity to watch the fight on Television Zapad from tomorrow can watch the Arena Sport and the video on my YouTube channel.

I would still like to thank my team for doing a great job.
Many thanks also to my friends and sponsors who have been with me all this time and supporting me on my journey to rank on the world stage, without them nothing would have been possible.
