Daniel Torres claims featherweight title with first-round upset of Salahdine Parnasse

Daniel Torres ended up being the brand-new KSW featherweight champ on Saturday, when he stopped Salahdine Parnasse less than 2 minutes into the preliminary.

Torres’ (12-4) uncomfortable ideal hook captured Parnasse (14-1-1) on the top of the head and put him down to spell an end to the contest, requiring a modification of ownership with the 145-pound belt at the 1:49 mark of Round 1 in the KSW 58 centerpiece.

KSW 58 occurred at a concealed place in Lodz, Poland and streamed by means of online pay-per-view.

After exchanging some blows early in the battle, Parnasse got a little too aggressive being available in on Torres with a mix, and it cost him.

Torres aimed to counter with an ideal hook, and as Parnasse ducked, the lower part of Torres’ bicep captured him on the side of the head and dropped Parnasse face-first to the canvas.

Parnasse, in spite of not being out cold, was undoubtedly harmed by the glancing blow, and it sufficed for the referee to leap in and stop the battle.

With that, Torres, who closed as a high as a +500 wagering underdog, was considered the brand-new KSW featherweight champ, while Parnasse was stunned after taking his very first profession loss.
