Current fight

Tanner Boser vs. Daniel Spitz

Round 1 – Boston kicking things off with the big boys. As advertised, these are two large men. A touch of gloves and were off. The two exchange jabs. Boser is the first to connect with a hard shot – and overhand right. A thunderous leg kick follows. It seems like that’s Boser gameplan – target the leg. He goes back to the well again. Spitz lands a leg kick of his own, but Boser returns it. Boser rips a loud body kick that has the crowd oohing and awing. Spitz tries a high kick, but it’s blocked. Both men are consistently landing smaller shots, but the big ones are whiffing often. Boser rips another body kick, but it’s semi-blocked. An overhand left for Boser lands – one of the biggest shots of the night. Spitz wings a wild head kick in the direction of Boser and almost falls over. That’s the conclusion of round 1. 10-9 Boser.

Round 2 – Boser kicks the body and then the leg. Through the first six minutes of the fight, Spitz has been struggling to land anything massive. Boser lands another leg kick. While I don’t know how much they’re hurting Spitz, they’re definitely frustrating him. Boser’s cardio appears to be a bit ahead of Spitz. Boser lands a huge left hand, which Spitz absorbs surprisingly well. Spitz tries a two punch combination, but misses on both. Boser is so consistent with his leg kicks. Spitz is starting to put the pressure on Boser, but he’s chasing more than landing. Spitz connects with one of his biggests punches of the night. Spitz returns with a two-punch combination. The pace and willingness to trade just picked up. – just in time for the end of the round. 20-18 Boser.
