Sergey ‘Krusher’ Kovalev (31-2-1, 27 KOs) made super easy work of #10 WBO fringe contender Vyacheslav Shabranskyy (19-2, 16 KOs) in knocking him out in the 2nd round on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Kovalev knocked the 30-year-old Shabranskyy down 3 times in total in the fight before the match was stopped in round 2.

The official time of the stoppage was at 2:36 of round 2.

Kovalev, 34, knocked Shabranskyy down twice in round 1 with right hands. Shabranskyy barely made it out of the round. In round 2, Kovalev dropped Shabranskyy with big right hand to the head. After Shabranskyy got back up, Kovalev calmly nailed him with a series of hard shots that staggered him and caused him to back up against the ropes.

The referee Harvey Dock then stepped in and halted the fight.

”I’m back,” said Kovalev after the fight. ”I don’t think I was sopped in my last fight [with Andre Ward]. It was an illegal decision. We should find out who is the best in the light heavyweight division. That is Chickenson [Stevenson]. He’s on my list. I’m ready for unification championship with Beterbiev,” said Kovalev.

Kovalev twice lost to Beterbiev in the past when the two of them were in the amateur ranks. It would be interesting to see the two of them fight in the pro ranks. Beterbiev recently won the vacant IBF 175 lb. title in beating Enrico Koelling by a 12th round knockout.
