On last evening’s episode of Wednesday Night Fights, live on Probox TV, viewers witnessed an exciting match-up. French ringmaster, Mohamed ‘The Problem’ Mimoune, and r Steven Galeano went toe-to-toe at the Kissimmee Civic Centre, Florida, engaging in a 10-round co-main event.
Former world champ Mimoune, riding a two-fight losing streak, was in dire need of a victory. Simultaneously, the undefeated Galeano, a native of New York, risked his spotless record, backed by a second-round knockout win in his previous fight and the benefit of training alongside Lomachenko during his time off.
The seasoned southpaw Mimoune took an early lead in the fight, forcing Galeano to fend him off with jabs to the head and body in what was his first bout scheduled for 10 rounds. Adeptly moving forward, the French boxer utilized his experience and superior footwork to close in on Galeano, whose worried expression was impossible to miss.
While Galeano adopted a defensive strategy, moving back, Mimoune masterfully cut off the ring, exerting minimal effort, and easily brushed off Galeano’s punches. Mimoune’s growing confidence was visible as he led Galeano into deeper territory, unleashing a torrent of combinations whenever he had him pinned against the ropes.
By the end of the fifth round, Mimoune had launched a decisive right hook that connected with Galeano’s chin just as the latter attempted a body shot. The impact sent Galeano sprawling backward onto the canvas. Sensing an impending victory, Mimoune unleashed a flurry of head and body shots in the sixth round, flooring Galeano thrice more before the referee intervened, halting the bout midway through the round.
Under the proud gaze of his mentor, Roy Jones Jr., Mohamed ‘The Problem’ Mimoune celebrated his fourth career stoppage victory. He handed Steven Galeano his first-ever loss, taking his undefeated record and delivering a masterclass in the sweet science of boxing
