Gorgeous knockout from the American Olympian opening up for Beterbiev: video


Madison Square Garden Theatre, New York, USA. As part of the show, cool American avenues performed.

Featherweight (up to 57.2 kg)
Bruce “Shu-shu” Carrington (4-0, 3 KOs) scored a Cuban
Adriana Leyvu (3-3-1, 1 KO).

The duel turned out to be not very spectacular, as it abounded in clinches – the underdog frankly survived. By round 3, the fight turned into a one-sided beating of the Cuban, with Carrington boxing with an aggressive middle/close-range number one. The American was especially good at jabs, right hands and body hooks.

It seemed that Leiva would hear the final gong, but he was not released for the 6th round. Seems like a vision problem.

Carrington TKO 5.

It is this guy who is considered the coolest prospect of Bob Arum.

Welterweight (up to 66.7 kg)
Jahai Tucker (8-0, 5 KOs) dealt beautifully with his compatriot
Deandre Smith (11-2, 5 KOs).

Prospect played the fight with an aggressive No. 1, quickly forcing his opponent into survival mode.
