An incredible knock out in a very short and promising fight which I hope has no consequences for the future career and the health of Jordan. Gassiev is a beast however, I was expecting to watch something spectacular from Jordan’s side since, as per his records, he is a very strong puncher too and a good technical boxer.
Knock out of the year so far.
Perfect Mike Tyson esk left hook to the chin.
LOL Just noticed the IRON nickname …
Any video of him and GGG sparing?
KOotY candidate for sure, with Alvarez-Khan.
Sanchez wasn’t kidding about this guy.
Notice that the left foot was off the ground when he made contact, perfect body twist to put every bit of kinetic energy ito the punch. This boy can fight, it was only a matter of time. He looked like he was disadvantaged on height and reach but his coaching showed thru. Great fight while it lasted!
Sickening Knock out, hope Shimmell’s recovered well.
Yet another East Euro KO machine on the scene.
Not bad . . . at least average, perhaps a little better. Jury still out.
