Riyadh, Saudi Arabia (May 18, 2024) - From the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Agit Kabayel delivered a statement performance by stopping the previously undefeated Frank Sanchez in the seventh round. The bout was part of the undercard for the much-anticipated Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk undisputed showdown, and it added a significant highlight to an already electrifying night of boxing.

Germany's Agit Kabayel absolutely destroyed Frank Sanchez with body shots and combinations.

Kabayel, entering the ring with a perfect record of 24-0 (16 KOs), faced off against the formidable Cuban contender Frank Sanchez, who boasted an impressive 24-0 (17 KOs). The German heavyweight’s victory not only preserved his unbeaten streak but also solidified his status as a serious threat in the division.

The fight began with Sanchez showing his skill by landing a powerful right hand in the first round, pushing Kabayel back. Despite Sanchez’s early success, Kabayel quickly found his rhythm in the second round, effectively mixing his shots to both the body and head, forcing Sanchez to reconsider his approach.

As the rounds progressed, Kabayel’s relentless pressure and body attacks began to take a toll on Sanchez. The German fighter’s consistent and precise body shots were visibly affecting the Cuban, who appeared to be waiting for a single knockout punch rather than engaging in a sustained exchange. Kabayel's strategy paid off as he maintained his pressure, landing a well-timed right hand in the fifth round and continuing his impressive bodywork.

In the sixth round, Kabayel’s dominance became more pronounced. He controlled the pace and space of the ring, setting up what would be a dramatic conclusion in the seventh round. It was then that Kabayel unleashed a devastating body shot that sent Sanchez to the canvas. Although Sanchez managed to beat the count, he was clearly weakened. Kabayel seized the moment, delivering a series of brutal body shots that floored Sanchez again, this time for good, earning Kabayel a KO victory.

In his post-fight interview, a jubilant Kabayel shared his thoughts on the win. “I trained very hard for this opportunity,” he said, reflecting on his preparation and the execution of his game plan. Speaking about his tactics, he added, “Go to the body, go to the head. I’m ready for the next.”

Kabayel’s victory over Sanchez not only adds a significant name to his resume but also sends a clear message to the heavyweight division: Agit Kabayel is a force to be reckoned with. His performance demonstrated not only his power and precision but also his tactical acumen, suggesting that he could pose a serious challenge to any heavyweight in the world.

The undercard of the Fury vs. Usyk event was filled with notable performances, including those of Moses Itauma, but it was Kabayel’s stunning seventh-round stoppage of Frank Sanchez that stood out as the most impressive. As the heavyweight division continues to evolve, Kabayel’s name is now firmly in the mix as a top 5 contender, and fans will undoubtedly be eager to see what’s next for the rising star.
