Youssef comes into the 3rd very fast and looking for an obvious stoppage. Saladiak very sharply lands an upwards elbow to the cheek of Boughanem, showing his experience Youssef shrugs it off and continues the onslaught.

Artur is showing some huge heart in this battle but referee Tony Myers steps in gives Saladiak the 8 count. The bout resumes but Youseef now, sensing a weakness rushes Saladiak and some big shots drops him to the canvas.

Referee Myers calling a halt to the fight.
