Artur Beterbiev (20:0) got to a TKO win against Callum Smith (29:2) in the 7th round of their light heavyweight fight for the IBF, WBC and WBO belts.
The 38 years old champion started a little slow but after three rounds he discovered the British contender and started outpacing him with his hand and feet.
Beterbiev landed some huge combinations and send Smith to the ground once around a minute and a half in the 7th and a few seconds later he was down again and the referee Michael Griffin waved his arms to end it all.
Callum Smith couldn’t even stand up for the official decision because he needed medical assistance.
Now Artur Beterbiev will most likely fight Dmitriy Bivol for the undisputed light heavyweight title of the world. They even had a pre-signed contract before this fight.
