It's Showtime 46: William Diender Bullies Rachid Belaini to a Decision Win

  • Written by Dave Walsh

The staredown between Diender and Belaini was beyond epic, with Belaini right in Diender's face and neither man backing down an inch. As soon as the first bell rings the hard and heavy shots come out. Diender goes for the flashier attacks throwing a few flying knees while Belaini keeps things fundamental. At one point he trips Diender and then literally tea-bags him, that is the kind of fight this is. Just when it looks like Belaini has the round Diender comes back and begins bullying him around.

Diender catches Belaini with a stiff left hook early in the second and follows up swarming Belaini who is able to cover up. Belaini is quickly in trouble again, in the corner as Diender rains down blows on him. The second round is all Diender.

The third round both men decide to go all out with Belaini realizing he is behind here and he throws his shots like he is trying to take Diender's head off. Diender responds in stride. Diender is controlling the fight here pushing Belaini to the ropesand making sure Belaini can't respond with his big hooks. Near the end of the round Diender is simply too tired to connect with a heavy enough shot to score a knockdown. Both men make the distance in what was a very good battle.

All five judges score the fight for William Diender and there was no doubt that he was the winner. Diender runs out and hugs Peter Aerts and hey, why not?
