Moving on to Round 2 and 3, following a knee and an eye poke, Glover started to lose momentum in the battle. Soon after, Hill reclaimed control and unleashed a barrage of devastating combinations on Teixeira. Unfortunately, the 44-year-old was in bad condition since he was severely injured although he connected some strong hooks.

Teixeria’s face was covered in blood as the fourth round started. After then, he never appeared to be in a position to prevail and instead appeared to be merely surviving and receiving significant damage. Hill was clearly in the lead and had been a very superior fighter in this match fight.

As the 5th round came to a close, eventually, he tried to pass the time. And it was obvious that Hill had won and was now the new light-heavyweight champion.
