And now the fight of the night--Kolton Menzak fighting out of Lethbridge, Alberta taking on Butte's own Sam Rauch for the Sparta Combat League Lightweight Muay Thai World Championship.
Menzak would weather an early storm and busts Rauch open with the big elbow shot--that cut would bother Rauch for much of the fight.
But Rauch would perservere and land big shot after big shot as he drops Menzak with a big shot to the body.
And here once again--great counter punch drops Menzak--who would need all of the ten cound to get back up.
And looking to finish strong--Rauch backs Menzak down with a flurry of punches.
