The heavy weight Tony Yoka continued his "Conquest", the name given to his early career by his writers, easily beating his second German in a row, Michael Wallisch, Saturday in Nantes, by judgment of the referee at the 3rd reprise.

Less than three months after another heavyweight, Alexander Dimitrenko, in July in Antibes, the scenario was almost identical, Wallisch putting one knee down first, then the referee preferring to stop the charges a few seconds later, before the approximately 6,200 spectators of the H Arena.

"When I saw that there was nothing very bad in front, I had to let go to please the public," reacted the Olympic champion in Rio, very applauded by the public in Nantes.

Yoka remains undefeated in seven professional fights, including six wins before the limit. He will meet in early December, in Paris, another German, Christian Hammer, 16th world heavyweight.
