Self-proclaimed ‘King of the North’, Nico Carrillo, became King of Europe this weekend when he defeated Spanish fighter Dani Molero to win the WBC MuayThai European title.
The Glaswegian knockout artist claimed yet another stoppage victory on his way to win one of Europe’s most prestigious accolades.
Throughout the early exchanges, Carrillo looked sharp, landing his signature body shot and snappy leg kicks.
In the second round, Carrillo’s power became apparent, as he dropped Molero for an eight-count. Later in round three, damage from elbows was enough for the doctor to step in and wave the fight off.
The win now earns Nico Carrillo the WBC Muaythai European title and his fourth straight victory of 2021, three of which by way of stoppage.
