A crazy first round saw Makwan dropping Knight with a lead right hook. But Knight was not going down so easily. A perfectly times uppercut from Knight dropped Makwan and moments later another uppercut saw him grabbing the feet of Knight as he struggled to stay in the fight. Knight unable to capitalize on the knockdowns had to settle with the round going in his favour. But in the next two rounds, Makwan came back strong and scored three takedowns and landed some crisp strikes to glide ahead in the judges scorecard.
