Two minutes before the end of the round, the U.S. fighter managed to return to the rack, but the first accurate series of “Korean Zombie” sent a pretty shabby Edgar in another knockdown and after a short achievement Goddard stopped the fight, fixing the victory of Chan Sung Jung by technical knockout.
