Pimblett came out confident and launched crazy head kicks and spinning attacks to make his presence known. Vendramini fired back and landed a powerful counter that temporarily checked the English prospect. But that didn’t stop Pimblett as he kept pushing forward with combinations and caught Vendramini bad along the cage. A final flurry from “Baddy” put Vendramini down for the count.
