Franjic wins in Montreal

FranjicSteve Franjic’s fifth round TKO in Montreal on June 13, could very well be the one that takes him up a level in the sport.

His opponent, Andrew Gardiner, a 26 year-old from Ottawa, is no wild card – he came to the fight with a 10-1 record with six of those being KO’s.

It was a much anticipated bout in the boxing world with both light-heavyweights considered to be on the ‘watch list.’

However, Gardiner took a heavy dose of Franjic’s power when he was dropped in the third round with a left hook that left him on the canvas.

The damage was done, and Franjic finished him in the fifth with another left that stopped the fight.

In the boxing world, ten wins in the pro ranks usually means people are taking notice.

Franjic now has 12 wins behind him and no losses. He has one fight that was called as a draw back in 2013.

With that kind of record, other boxers will be taking notice – and so will promoters and managers, and just about everyone else involved in the sport.

With this fight over, no doubt Franjic will sit back for a while and see what type of offers come his way.
