Still undefeated in seventeen outings as a professional, the only time defeat was near was in his 2015 “Fight of the Night” battle with Nicholas Dalby.

In post fight interviews, Darren made it clear that he has big plans. He wanted big fights, but canada goose outlet new york city nobody in the top ten would open the door to a young and dangerous contender, so next he was matched up with fellow rising prospect, Bojan canada goose outlet black friday Velickovic.Again, Till canada goose outlet store dictated the pace of the fight and landed clean elbows and left hands.
