- Semishkur down at :54 from quick left uppercut, right hand combination. He made it to his feet at the count of three and received a standing eight-count.
- Semishkur down again at 1:30 from a left hook to the liver. He immediately rolled around in the ring, going from his back to all fours, in obvious pain from the thudding shot. Referee Phil Edwards made it to the count of five, then waved an end to the bout.
