Ali lost his fight tonight, but everyone is proud of the way he fought!
This picture says a million words
Ali lost to Flip Street tonight but he made Malaysia proud and put up a good fight. During the first round Ali took some heavy punches to the head. Then in the second round Ali was elbowed and received a cut to his right brow(Ali received 4 stitches), but this didn't break his spirit. Ali came back strong in the 3rd round and managed to kick Flip hard twice to the neck but this didn't manage to knock Flip down, maybe his kick wasn't quite as powerful due to Flip's height. In round 4, Ali was hit by a strong uppercut to his jaw and everyone was amazed that he wasn't floored. Overall Ali put up a good fight and everyone was impressed by him. They were also impressed by his fighting spirit.
Ali's weight averages at 57kg but Flip,who during the weigh-in was 60kg had dropped the weight(water etc) to get down to 60kg but the next day after the weigh-in he looked more like 63kg,that would make him 6kg's heavier than Ali, this is what experienced fighters do. This is something Ali and a lot of us need to learn. All said and done, Ali put up a really good fight and proved to us all he's really skilled, tough and that it's not easy to bring him down!
In June Ali will fight Australia Champion, Chris White, for the WMC Asian Title. Chris is 57kg.
