R1: Karo wings a wild right but follows behind it to clinch up. Hawn pivots and nearly gets the rear waist lock but Karo spins out and digs an underhook. They release and collide again and Karo takes a low knee. We restart after a short pause with Karo lunging with double jabs while Hawn circles out in retreat. Now Hawn comes forward with a combo that Karo blocks. Outside leg kick lands for Hawn.
Karo's lead hand is dangerously low, but he unwinds a jab downstairs. Karo catches Hawn's incoming kick and pounces with a flying knee that Hawn defends well. Karo stays busy with jabs. Hawn's first 1-2 counter whiffs but the second gets Karo's attention. Hawn calls time out after Karo's inside low kick appears to graze the cup. Again, little time is wasted on the pause, and Hawn clips Karo with a sharp high kick that seems to wobble him just before the bell. The late kick and follow up punches were enough to tilt the close round in Hawn's favor. 10-9 Hawn.
R2: Karo comes out aggressive with punches again until Hawn cracks him with a left a minute in. Hawn follows with another hook-based flurry, resets and uncorks his signature right hand. The blow rocks Parisyan, who crumbles under the hail of strikes behind it.
