Seemingly unfazed by the knockdown, Morgan was able to get up to his feet, and land some quality, hard shots on Joel, forcing the son of IBO champ to become flustered by the pressure. In a turn of events, Morgan was able to then drop Bennett late into the first round, ending the fight with a KO victory for Bendigo local Brad Morgan, in a fight that truly set the tone for the rest of the evening. After being knocked down, it was found that Bennett had broken his tibula and fibula after suffering a heavy right hand, and was rushed to hospital straight after.
Overall, the night was a great night out at the fights, with all fighters giving their all to put on a great show for the Bendigo locals. Congratulations to all fighters and trainers involved and to Hosking Promotions for their first successful show!
