Noah Zuhdi Blasts Vajda in Two, Retains Title
by Phillip Przybylo
In front of a packed house last night at the Lucky Star Casino in Oklahoma, WBU Lightweight Champion Noah Zuhdi did not disappoint in the partisan crowd as he knocked out clever counter-puncher Gyula Vajda in the second round to defend his championship.
Zuhdi (17-1, 13 KOs) came out strong and Vajda (12-4, 8 KOs), came out stubborn in the first stanza. In a lightening quick exchange in the center of the ring, Zuhdi followed up a jab with a thudding straight right, right as Vajda was trying to counter. The flash knockdown seemed to only wake the Hungarian up, however. Vajda began fighting at a heightened sense and temporarily stunned Zuhdi with a counter left that the champion described as "the second hardest I've ever been hit with."
Dickie Wood (PICTURED LEFT), Zuhdi's trainer, explained afterward, "He just got away from the gameplan. That's all it was. He wasn't moving around enough. I did my best to set him straight and get him back on the right page, the gameplan. And he did." READ MORE
