GARY'S REIGN IS OVER.
The signs weren't good from the outset as the 28- year-old took three attempts to make the weight, receiving a EUR1000 fine from the World Kickboxing Network (WKN) under the rules and regulations.
The fight was very a much a seesaw battle with Hamilton starting the stronger of the two, but by the third round fatigue set in due to him battling against the scales.
Kinigamazi took this opportunity to stretch a lead in the fight and hurt Hamilton on many occasions with his work rate.
The Rwandan exile was a clear leader by the sixth round and looked as if he was going to stop the Belfast fighter.
Hamilton, though, showed true grit to take the fight the distance.
It went down to the judges but it was a unanimous decision in favour of Kinigamazi, the new champion..
DEFEATED Gary Hamilton
