Sergey Kovalev Takes Out Shabranskyy To Grab WBO Title – The “Krusher” is once again WBO world light heavyweight champion as Sergey Kovalev stopped Vyacheslav Shabranskky last night on HBO. Kovalev came out to make a statement as he was coming off two losses in a row to Andre Ward and he appears to have done so. He sent Shabranskyy to the canvas a total of three times in less than six minutes and at the end of the day, “Slava” was saved by the referee, who stepped into save him as Kovalev unloaded.
IBF world champion Dmitry Bivol was in attendance, and he may be slated to face Sullivan Barrera next. Barrera scored an entertaining win against Edwin Valera in another light heavyweight co-feature.
