Belgaroui calls for title shot with Pereira

Belgaroui calls for title shot with Pereira

Sunday, May 13 2018 by John O'Regan

Yousri Belgaroui was originally set to face former champion Jason Wilnis in a Middleweight contender rematch at GLORY 53, but an ailment forced Wilnis to withdraw a week out. 
 
He was replaced by Polish veteran Dawid Kasperski.
 
Kasperski has competed at a good level on the European circuit, but it was always going to be a tall order to handle a fighter of Belgaroui’s caliber on four days’ notice. 
 
The Pole gave a good account of himself early on but Belgaroui’s sharpness soon made itself felt. And in the second round it sealed the deal: three knockdowns, the latter two with body kicks, ended Kasperski’s night.
 
Post-fight, Belgaroui turned his attention not to Wilnis, but to Middleweight champion Pereira.
 
“The title has always been the goal and me and Pereira are 1-1 against each other, so let’s do this,” he said.
 
Yousri Belgaroui def. Dawid Kasperski by TKO (strikes). Round 2, 1:37
