According to the website, Haqparast continued the strong striking in the second round. He was able to keep the fight on the feet and was certainly landing the more impactful shots.
The third round was more of the same. Haqparast just appeared so fast and so polished as a striker. There just wasn’t really much Munoz could do. It should be said, Munoz is tough as nails and never to a step backward. He was right there and fought his heart out for the entirety of the fight. He was just unable to implement his game plan and Haqparast is just on a different level as a striker.

Haqparast improves to 12-3 while Munoz falls to 6-1
