Unbeaten coming-forward Indian 105-pounder Nutlai Lalbiakkima (3-0, 3 KO’s), fighting in his hometown of Aizawl in Mizoram State, overwhelmed and stopped in just 2 rounds Thai southpaw Gerttipong Kimsahwat, 23, of Aranyaprathet to claim the vacant IBA Intercontinental Minimumweight Title during Saturday’s televised action-pack LPS Fight Night show at the Dawrpui Hall, promoted by Marine Boxing.

The short-lived, fast-paced, toe-to-toe battle ended when the third man timely halted actions after the Thai warrior Kimsahwat (6-10, 5 KO’s) looked unsteady after being impacted hard against the ropes by a power right overhand during a rough exchange in chapter two.





The victory is Lalbiakkima’s third straight knockout win, after two prior stoppage triumphs in Mumbai.

What’s next for the ferocious small Indian whirlwind?

With the rewarding win - and with his new IBA intercontinental belt strapped on him - the aggressive Lalbiakkima says to feel ready for more challenging wars in the 105-lbs weight class.
