Kautondokwa, silent throughout a week while his opponent was on a campaign that saw his good looks yield points rather than his boxing skills, saw him unabated by the inferior challenge.
Stepping into a bout scheduled for twelve rounds was a bad idea for Codoy, as his opponent was evidently a few notches above him.
All the talk could not save the pretty Codoy, who stumbled after a fierce hook from Kautondoka in the second round, that left him dizzy to identify the referees finger.

And in the 5th round, the deadly Kautondokwa connected a combo sent the Argentine down out.
