The WBF Executives will meet in
the near future to decide what
those consequences will be.
The fight itself was very
technical, with Cornu having
success going forward and Kiilu
boxing beautifully on the
retreat, countering nicely with
punches to body and head. The
home-man appeared to be the
stronger of the two, but Kiilu
looked to be the better boxer.
In the end it was anybody’s
guess who would be declared the
winner, until the judges scores
were announced and falsely made
it look like an easy fight for
Cornu. However, Cornu performed
well and it was no robbery that
he won the fight.
With the victory Sebastien “The
Scorpion” Cornu moved from
Journeyman to Champion-status
and improved his professional
record to 11-8-3 (6), while
Kiilu, after five straight
victories, dropped to 35-11-2
(21). Paul Bert Cercle promoted.
