Championship fights consist out of 5 rounds of 3 minutes. Harut Grigorian started off good in the first round. He put pressure on Doumbé and aimed for his legs and tried to break through Doumbé's defence. The second round Harut gets knocked down, but gets up immediately. Although Harut is getting punched a lot, he never backs down, he is a warrior and kept coming at Cedric. But then he gets his second knock down. Cedric Doumbé thought he already won the fight and left the ring, but Harut still had strength to move on and fight. But soon after that he gets his third knock down, which means he lost the fight on a Technical Knockout in the second round.
After 1 year of being the Welterweight Champion, Harut loses his belt in this fight. But don't worry he will be back!
