Honor Fighting Championship 3: Operation Shockwave went down in Akron, Ohio on Saturday night, and the fight card featured 14 total bouts.
Aleksa Camur (3-0) advanced his unbeaten record in the main event, as the Strong Style Fight Team product stopped Allen Bose (2-1) via TKO in the first round. After dropping Bose with a short right hand against the cage, Camur pounced and teed off looking to finish the fight. Bose attempted to recover, but the barrage of punches from the 22-year-old was too much to overcome.
Camur continues to climb the ranks and is now ranked as the No. 5 pro light heavyweight in Ohio and No. 30 in the Midwest according to Tapology. He earned our Performance of the Night honors for his first round TKO win.
In the co-main event, Kaheem Murray (2-1) stopped Dru Schottenheimer (3-4) via strikes in the first round as well. The two traded shots early in the first round, but Murray caught Schottenheimer with a punch against the cage that dropped him. Schottenheimer tried to cover up, but it was too little too late and the referee halted the fight at 3:34 in round one.
After two years out of the cage, Ontario native Aaron Jeffery (4-1) earned a hard fought victory over Strong Style’s Chad Kelly (2-3). The two spent a grueling 15 minutes with most of the fight taking place in the clench against the cage, and Jeffery appeared to take the first two rounds before Kelly stormed back with a strong round three.
The pro action kicked off with James Pfeiffer (1-1) using his wrestling to secure his first pro win over Stephen Defalle (1-2). Defalle attempted to stay busy off of his back, but the top game of Pfeiffer was too much as he worked in strikes and kept his positioning on top for most of the fight.
In the amateur ranks, Nick Brashear (8-0) took home the super heavyweight title with a first round TKO over Ian Suttles (5-1). It’s the third amateur title for Brashear, who said he now plans to jump to the pro ranks after the win.
