WELL.

THEY BOTH EARNED VICTORIES

AGAINST EACH OTHER.

PARPARYAN BEAT WILNIS IN

SEPTEMBER OF 2012 AND WILNIS

BEAT PARPARYAN IN NOVEMBER OF

2012.

THAT ONE BY WAY OOF TKO.

JASON WILNIS IN THE BLACK WITH

WHITE STRIPES.

AND SAHAK PARPARYAN IN THE

BLACK.

WILNIS THROWS A LOW KICK TO KICK

THINGS OFF.

HERE COMES PARPARYAN.

PSYCHOLOGICAL ADVANTAGE.

HE STOPPED PARPARYAN.

PARPARYAN BEAT HIM ON POINTS

THOUGH.

PSYCHOLOGICALLY COMES IN MORE

CONFIDENT.

SAHAK PARPARYAN.

WATCH THE SPEED OF JASON WILNIS.

PARPARYAN PUSHES.

A GOOD COMBINATION.

FOLLOWS IT WITH A LOW KICK.

MIDDLE OF THE FIGHT WILL WIN

THIS WAR.

>> AND BOTH KNOWN FOR FINISHING

THEIR FIGHTS.

THIS ONE MAY NOT GO THE

DISTANCE.

THAT CAN BE A BENEFIT ANY TIME

YOU'RE IN A TOURNAMENT.

GET IN AND OUT QUICKLY.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, HEALTHY.

>> PARPARYAN IS USING COOL PUNCH

WITH HIS LEFT HAND.

HE'S USING A 45 OR WHAT THEY

CALL IN BOXING THE SHOVEL HOOK.

HE'S TRYING TO FLIP WILNIS'

GLOVES WITH IT OR SOMETIMES WHAT

LOOKS LIKE A LIVER SHOT.

IT'S A DECEPTIVE PUNCH.

>> PARPARYAN JUST MISSED WITH

THE UPPER CUT.

JASON WILNIS SHOWS THE SPEED I

WAS TALKING ABOUT, THROWING THE

COMBINATION.

>> BODY SHOT LANDS FROM

PARPARYAN.

TECHNICAL AND AGGRESSIVE.

TRIES TO PUSH KICK.

JUST MISSED.

TOURNAMENT, HOW MUCH DAMAGE WILL

THEY TAKE IN THE FIRST FIGHT.

THAT GETS THROUGH THE GUARD.

UNDER A MINUTE TO GO IN ROUND

NUMBER 1.

KICK.

PUSH KICKS THERE FROM JASON

WILNIS.

>> NICE PULL BACK.

WENT TO THE BODY.

AT HOME, WHY ARE THEY GOING TO

THE BODY AND THE LEGS?

THEY'RE GOING TO TIRE OUT THEIR

OPPONENTS.

THOSE SHOTS TO THE BODY SLOW YOU

DOWN.

THE LEG KICKS WILL TAKE THE

FIGHT OUT OF YOU.

PARPARYAN IS A VERY GOOD COUNTER

PUNCHER.

HERE'S THE POWER STATS.

35% LANDED BY PARPARYAN.

MUCH DAMAGE TO SAHAK PARPARYAN.

WE SAW THIS WOULD BE THE FIRST

SEMIFINAL BOUT, WE KNEW THIS

WOULD BE A SOLID FIGHT.

BOTH OF THESE GUYS ARE TOUGH

KIDS.

IS MURDER'S ROW.

ALL OF THESE GUYS ARE DANGEROUS.

>> AND PARPARYAN REALLY WORKING

THE BODY.

GETTING THROUGH WITH A

COMBINATION.

HERE'S WILNIS.

>> WILNIS HAS A NICE COMBO LIKE

SUGAR RAY LEONARD.

PARPARYAN LOOKS LIKE HAGLER

THROWING HARD STRIKES.

IT'S GOING TO BE IMPORTANT HOW

THE JUDGES SCORE THIS FIGHT.

ACTIVITY OR AGGRESSION AND POWER

LIKE THAT.

>> COMBINATION TO THE BODY FROM

PARPARYAN.

UNDER A MINUTE TO GO IN ROUND

HOOK.

MIKE IS A GOOD KICK BOXER.

AFTER SUFFERING A GRUESOME NOSE

AND FACE INJURY.

HE BROKE HIS JAW.

WE WERE WONDERING HOW HE WOULD

DO

>> THE THIRD AND FINAL ROUND.

DUKE, WHO DO YOU HAVE LEAD

SOMETHING.

>> I'M GOING WITH THE HOP.

PARPARYAN.

HE'S THE MORE AGGRESSIVE AND

LANDING THE BIGGER SHOTS.

>> WE HAVE JASON WILNIS NEEDING

TO PICK UP THE PACE IN THE THIRD

ROUND.

HERE'S PARPARYAN AGAIN.

REALLY HAVING SUCCESS WITH THE

COMBINATION TO THE BODY.

THERE'S A RIGHT THAT GETS

THROUGH TO THE HEAD OF WILNIS.

WILNIS'S CORNER, THEY SCREAM OUT

EVERY TIME HE THROWS A LOW KICK.

>> THAT'S A TRADITION FROM

THAILAND.

WHEN YOU LAND A BIG KICK, IT'S

CALLED A KAKOW.

IT'S GOOD FOR THE FIGHTER'S

MENTALITY.

>> HAWK PREPARING.

NUMBER 4 RANKED MIDDLE WEIGHT AS

WE CHECK OUT THE TOTAL STRIKES.

EVENLY MATCHED AT THIS POINT.

>> WHAT THE JUDGES ARE GROWING

TO SAY, WHO WANTS IT MORE.

NO GUTS, NO GLORY.

IT'S SO TRUTHFUL.

THE GUY THAT TURNS IT UP THIS

ROUND WILL WIN THE FIGHT.

>> A CHANCE TO MOVE ON TO THE

FINALS OF THE MIDDLEWEIGHT

CONTENDER TOURNAMENT HERE IN

ZAGREB.

NICE BODY SHOT FROM JASON WILNIS

IN COMBINATION.

HERE'S PARPARYAN.

LOVE IT.

>> AND IT'S TIME TO IMPRESS THE

JUDGES AND FINISH STRONG.

WILNIS MISSES WITH A HOOK.

THE ERIC MORALES FIGHT.

THE GUY THAT HITS LAST WILL WIN

THIS WAR.

THIRD AND FINAL ROUND.

PARPARYAN AND WILNIS.

WILNIS JUST MISSES WITH A SOLID

SHOT.

PARPARYAN SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN

COUNTERING BETTER IN THE THIRD

ROUND.

PUSH KICK.

GETS THROUGH.

AND ANOTHER.

WILNIS GOES UP AGAINST THE

ROPES.

TEEING OFF NOW IS PARPARYAN.

WILNIS IS BLOCKING A LOT OF

THOSE SHOTS.

>> WILNIS TOOK A BIG BREATH.

HE'S GOT TO PICK IT UP TO WIN

THIS ONE.

>> WHOA!

HIGH KICK JUST MISSES FROM

WILNIS.

FELT THE BREEZE OVER HERE

RINGSIDE.

WHO CAN FINISH THIS ROUND STRONG

ENOUGH?

THAT'S GOING TO DO IT FOR ROUND

THREE.

SAHAK PARPARYAN AND JASON

WILNIS, WHAT A WAY

>> WHO WILL BE MOVING ON TO THE

MIDDLEWEIGHT CONTENDER FINALS?

IT'S UP TO THE JUDGES BETWEEN

SAHAK PARPARYAN AND JASON WILNIS

AS WE CHECK OUT THE STRIKE

STATS.

>> THE ARMS ARE THROWN MORE

OBVIOUSLY BY SAHAK PARPARYAN.

THE LEGS BY WILNIS.

BUT I THINK THE MORE EFFECTIVE

STRIKES WERE BY SAHAK EVEN

THOUGH THE PERCENTAGES SAY

DIFFERENT.

THE POWER IS THE DIFFERENCE.

LOOK AT THE POWER RATIO.

THAT'S WHAT PROFESSIONAL PRIZE

FIGHTING IS ABOUT.

TRYING TO KNOCK OUT YOUR

OPPONENT.

>> AND WE'LL FIND OUT WHO WILL

BE MOVING ON TO THE FINALS.

LET'S MAKE IT OFFICIAL AND HEAD

INTO THE GLORY RING AND TIM

HUGHES.

>> AFTER THREE ROUNDS, WE GO TO

THE JUDGES.

THE FIRST JUDGE, SCORES IT 29-28

WILNIS.

THE SECOND JUDGE, 29-28

PARPARYAN.

AND THE THIRD JUDGE, 29-28.

FOR YOUR WINNER WHO NOW ADVANCES

TO THE TOURNAMENT FINAL, SAHAK

PARPARYAN!

>> THE JUDGES SAW THIS ONE A

LITTLE BIT CLOSER THAN WE DID,

DUKE.

BUT SAHAK PARPARYAN EARNS THE

VICTORY BY ONE OF SPLIT DECISION

AND WILL MOVE ON TO THE FINALS.

ALWAYS A KEY IS DID HE GET OUT

HEALTHY AND WHEN YOU GO THREE

ROUNDS, THEY ALWAYS TAKE ITS

TOLL.

PARPARYAN HAS PUNCHED HIS TICKED

TO THE FINALS.
