Slovak boxer proves too tough for Sen Bunthen

Vladimir Konsky overpowered local middleweight favorite Sen Bunthen on Saturday to score a lopsided victory decision at the TV3 boxing arena. The 26-year-old Slovakian native scored two knockdowns, one in the fourth and one in the fifth. The first came via a sledgehammer head kick, followed by a knee to the head. The combination rocked Sen Bunthen, who just barely managed to hang on until the final bell. In the co-feature, undefeated Koh Kong hot shot Phon Phanna eked out a razor thin decision over former Peru champion Frank Erick Paredes Vilchez in a rematch of their December 4 light-welterweight bout, which ended in a draw.
