Jai Opetaia vs Jordan Thompson Results

OPETAIA VS THOMPSON RESULTS: SATURDAY 30 SEPTEMBER 2023

WHAT WAS THE RESULT OF OPETAIA VS THOMPSON?

In the main event of the boxing held at the AO Arena in Manchester, Jai Opetaia defended his IBF Cruiserweight Championship against British contender Jordan Thompson. Immediately from the opening bell, it looked as though Opetaia’s movement had the beating of Thompson’s size. Opetaia was more aggressive, walking down his opponent. Thompson reacted to Opetaia’s flurries of shots by stepping backwards, and his movement seemed off from the first shot he took. The first two rounds went clearly to the Australian Opetaia, before the third round arrived with even more decisive results. Opetaia knocked Thompson down in the third round, and threatened a stoppage as Thompson had no answer to his activity and accuracy. The fight ended in the fourth round as Jai Opetaia knocked Thompson down a second time, and the referee immediately waved it off.
