The match ended with the final score of 2:1, meaning the referees found Kovács slightly better from the point of technique and precise punches even though the Slovak boxer was knocked down twice in the last round.

SITA wrote that the match was dramatic and not as easy as Kovács originally expected. After 19 matches in the professional boxing ring, Kovács can boast only victories, with 13 of them coming even before the end of the match.
