Fight Recap

Both fighters went head-to-head in the opening round, attempting to dominate physically early on. In the dying seconds of the first, Volny landed a combination of punches that went unanswered until the final bell. The early rounds saw a lot of back-and-forth between the two and it was clear that this was going to be a brawl for as long as it lasted.

In the second half of round four, Volny threw a higher volume of punches with Butler barely responding to the blows, even appearing to stun him at the end. While Butler had his moments, his opponent was getting the better of the exchanges and became more dominant as the fight went on.

Volny had “Bang Bang” stunned in round nine and let his hands go to the head. Butler held on, doing his best to avoid going to the canvas. As Volny was throwing his shots, the referee stepped in to halt the contest. This was met with a protest from Butler, who did appear as though he could have continued. That being said, the bout had reached a stage where Butler had little response to what his opponent was doing, who had been consistently outworking him as the fight went on.
