King Artur: Beterbiev KOs Gvozdyk

Artur Beterbiev unifies WBC/IBF light heavyweight titles with 10th-round TKO over Oleksandr Gvozdyk

By

PHILADELPHIA (Oct. 18, 2019) — It was a savage light heavyweight battle that lived up to the Philadelphia billing. Artur Beterbeiv, in a back-a-forth affair, knocked out Oleksandr Gvozdyk in the 10th round to unify the WBC/IBF light heavyweight titles Saturday evening at the Liacouras Center.

Beterbiev knocked down Gvozdyk three times in the 10th, as referee Gary Rosato immediately waved off the fight following the third knockdown.

Beterbiev (15-0, 15 KOs) was behind on two of the three judges' scorecards at the time of the stoppage.

"We work in the gym We work hard, and we have some targets," Beterbiev said. "My first target, second target and other one comes soon.
 
“It doesn’t matter {who I fight next.} Anyone. I’m focused on title, not on name.”

Abdukakhorov Defeats Collazo

Kudratillo Abdukakhorov (17-0, 9 KOs) maintained his status as the IBF No. 1 welterweight contender, scoring a unanimous technical decision (99-91, 98-92 and 97-93) over former world title challenger Luis Collazo (39-8, 20 KOs) after a cut opened up above Collazo's right eye in the 10th and final round. 

“I am the IBF No. 1 contender, and I would like to fight for the title fight next," Abdukakhorov said. "I wanted to fight Errol Spence Jr., but unfortunately he got in a car accident. I wish him a speedy recovery, and if he’s ready to fight soon, I would like to fight him. If he has to vacate the title, then I will fight whoever they put in front of me.”

Collazo injured his biceps in the fifth round and was unable to throw his left hand much throughout the second half of the fight.

"Hey, it is what it is. This is part of the sport," Collazo said. "We’ll see what’s next.”

— South Philadelphia-born heavyweight sensation Sonny "The Bronco" Conto (5-0, 4 KOs) knocked out Steven Lyons (5-6, 2 KOs) following the conclusion of the first round after Lyons cited an injury.

— Light heavyweight contender Michael Seals (24-2, 18 KOs) knocked out Elio Trosch (14-9-2, 7 KOs) with a left hook at 1:38 of the opening round. Seals has won three in a row by knockout.

— Joseph "Blessed Hands" Adorno (14-0, 12 KOs) made quick work of Damian Sosa (9-3, 7 KOs), knocking out the Argentine veteran in the second round of a scheduled eight-round lightweight bout.
