Heavyweight hopeful Pezhman Seifkhani (5-0, 4KOs) headlined a gymshow in Brandbergen (on the outskirts of Stockholm, Sweden) tonight and took on Georgian southpaw David Gogishvili (16-4).
Seifkhani scored with a good right seconds into the fight but walked into a left moments later. Pezhman followed the advice of cornerman and trainer Kamran Kabinejad and went downstairs with a left hook to the body and Gogishvili went down.
He got up but was a beaten man and it was stopped 1.15 into the very first round of this scheduled six-rounder.
Icelandic heavyweight Gunnar Kolbeinn Kristinsson (8-0) stopped Archil Gigolashvili (2-1) 1.26 into the second round.
Kolbeinn, training with Robert Helenius in Finland, came in on a few days notice when Johnny Iwersen fell ill but was in good shape and looked strong and solid.
In other action welterweight Mohammed Saleh stopped Bosnian Jasmin Dananovic in the second.
The first female professional fighter ever from Iceland is Valgerdur Gudstensdottir and she made a good debut beating Angelique Hernandez (1-2) after a hotly contested four rounder in the superfeatherweight division. Hernandez was down in the second, kept coming but Gudstensdottir was too strong for her.
