Joe Pyfer got a reality check against Jack Hermansson who deservedly claimed a crucial win that will allow him to seamlessly rise higher in the competitive division. After 5 rounds of action, the judges declared Jack Hermansson the winner by unanimous decision.

Joe Pyfer was confident of winning, but Hermansson crushed his confidence and temporarily perished Pyfer’s goal of entering the top 15 middleweight rankings.

Jack Hermansson wants to fight Nassourdine Imamov next; it’s an interesting match. It will be interesting to see if Hermansson can maintain consistency with his winning momentum.

Jack Hermansson’s post-fight interview

“I know that people underestimate my boxing skills because of some less good performances,” Hermansson said, as quoted by mmafighting.com.

“But I believed in myself, especially in a long fight — nobody has the cardio I have, I got hit in the beginning more than I should have, but the plan was to put on the pace the more the fight went. I drown people when I do that.

I’d love to have at least two more fights this year, First of all, legalize MMA in Norway, it’s really important for me. Second of all, I would love to fight in Sweden again. And third of all, what about Nassourdine Imavov from last weekend? I think that would be a great opponent”.

“Listen, I don’t think anything surprised me, Jack was better tonight. I guess he would have won the last three rounds,” Pyfer said as quoted by mmafighting.com. “I feel like the shift in this fight was literally the calf kicks.

I just want to say I’m OK despite how my face looks, I wasn’t rocked. I got punched in the eyeball, couldn’t see. He did a good job on the calf. I feel like the eye, when I lost vision, I fell that round, I lost that round and I just couldn’t get it back, and he did a good job on the calf”.
