Slim defeated Tom Zanetti via unanimous decision with scorecards of 40-37, 39-37, 39-38 in an entertaining back-and-forth affair.
Both men came out looking to land with bad intentions from the off. Zanetti drew first blood with a stinging right hand but instantly ate a powerful one of his own as he stumbled into the ropes. A confident Zanetti clowned his adversary in the opener but quickly realised he was in for a fight.
In the second round, Slim began to settle down and pick his shots while Zanetti continued to throw hell to the wind. To his credit, the musician showed a lot of heart and an excellent chin as Slim began to land at will.
Coming into the third, Zanetti took a deep breath and got back to it as he attempted to smother Slim’s work. Pouring on the pressure, Zanetti crunched home a huge left hook followed by a straight right that rocked Slim to his boots.
Speaking to DAZN post-fight, he said: “I’ve got to stop fighting at this weight class, they’re too heavy man. He was a tough challenge, mad respect to him but man I’m going to have to go down in weight after this one.”
He added: “The only way I would stay at this weight class is if I got KSI or the winner of KSI vs FaZe Temperrr. Other than that I’m going to shoot down to 168 or 160 and see what names are down there.”
