Galaev was limp, and it looked like the fight was over.

But suddenly Galaev rises like a Phoenix from the ashes, and the whole complexity of the fight changes in an instant.

The fight made it into the second round where Galaev eventually knocked out Mutsnek in a shocking turn of events.

Rallying back from a choke out seems more like something that would happen in pro wrestling. It was a very impressive victory from Galaev.
