Antoine "Action" Douglas was in complete control as he scored a very impressive third-round TKO over previously undefeated Istvan Szili of Basel, Switzerland at the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, PA.
Douglas was dominant in front of the nationally-televised (ShoBox) audience as he avoided the straight-forward style of Szili in the first round with good defense. In the second, Douglas turned up the heat with solid shots to the face that dropped Szili for the first time in his career late in the round. The bout ended with another Douglas knockdown of Szili at 29 seconds of the third round. Douglas captured his third regional title -- the IBO Intercontinental Middleweight title.
This was Douglas's fourth appearance on ShoBox and he is 3-0-1, two KO's. The win was Douglas's second straight against a previously undefeated boxer. Douglas remains undefeated at 18-0-1, 12 KO's while Szili is now 18-1-2, eight KO's.
