Cissokho seemed determined right from the first bell. He annihilated the Mexican boxer and left him staggered with his dynamite-like right hands. He even dropped Echeverria in round 5 of the fight, and by then it was clear who the actual winner of this bout was going to be barring any freak one-punch comeback.

Moreover, the undefeated boxer came up with a rugged game-plan to attack, defend and use the ring well. He even dodged a few of his opponent’s shots, stayed out of range on occasions, and showcased a slick defense. Simultaneously, he gave slick counter-attacks as Echeverria left his guard open.

With this win, he improved to 12-0 and solidified his spot on the super-welterweight roster. He looks abruptly ready to elevate his career from hereon and take on some staunch contenders in the division.
