Herculano scores with a nice hook to the head.
Herculano creates some distance for himself and unleashes a massive uppercut that sends Roussow's eyes rolling into the back of his head! Roussow drops to his knees and Herculano pours it on with more strikes until the referee steps in to end the bout!

Ladies and gentlemen, after 1:41 of round 5, we have a winner by way of TKO (Strikes). Herminio Herculano!
Herminio Herculano gave a mention to Sully's Bar & Grill in his post fight interview. That will please them (and hopefully generate some sales).
