Los Angeles, CA (January 31, 2015) Emphatically announcing the start to his 2015 campaign, former world title challenger MICHEL SORO of Rhone, France scored a first round knockout over Hungarian veteran SANDOR MICSKO on Friday night at the Salle Polyvalente Du Ramier in Blagnac, France.
After a brief feeling out period, Soro drilled Micsko with a massive left hook to the head ending the scheduled 10-round junior middleweight clash shortly following the one minute mark as the referee called an immediate halt to the bout.
Said Soro, “My team told me to be dynamic and efficient this year – well there you go. I can’t wait to get back into the ring and continue my march towards a world title.”
Among those cheering on his knockout victory was friend and top rated middleweight challenger HASSAN N’DAM.
