    Gonzalez isn't some guy that just fell off the turnip truck. He was in the Cuban amateur program and a tough, seasoned fighter. Gvozdyk made him look like cannon fodder.

    Watching the interview (Kellerman can't quite hide his disappointment) I thought Gvozdyk looked and sounded a bit like Latka Gravas.

    I have to say Gvozdyk looked like a world beater last night. I am sure Kovalev, Ward and Stupidman are hearing his footsteps after this sensational performance.

    Gvozdyk has true boxing skills. The world can be his.

    It is official for December 1st (Stevenson vs Gvozdyk).

    Gvozdyk can really bang. He has a very crisp punch.

    Fight starts in just a few minutes on Showtime. I think Gvozdik is the real deal.

    Gvozdik's boxing skills taking over so far after a tight first two rounds.

    If this keeps up he should win easily.

    They are fighting in Montreal however.

    One down, one to go. Like the PPV main event Fury will need to do this Wilder. Of course Wilder is in his prime while Chicken was clearly past his best.....

    PS I thought I was listening to an old baseball game as Gvozdik was constantly pronounced as Bostick from Tompkins.

    Great finish by Gvozkik. He's a baby faced assassin, a throwback to Jimmy McLarnin, a baby faced Irishman from back in the day. If you looked at Gvozdik's mug shot with a bunch of other fighters you wouldn't guess he has as much killer instinct as any of them.

    Did I hear Raul Marquez say Vozdik was from Ukrainia?

    Great KO, albeit against a 41-year-old Stevenson.

    It seems that Uncle Teddy jumped on the bandwagon.

    His age got nothing to do with the outcome. According to every African and white North American worshiper in the boxing forums before the fight, Stevenson would destruct the Eastern European brother but instead he got owned. In my book, white brothers got two world titles tonight (Fury included).

    Is this the guy to beat at light heavy? I think he can beat Beterbiev.

    He is like a smaller version of Usyk. I don't think he could beat Beterbiev. Usyk was able to out score Beterbiev in the amateurs because of his size advantage. Whereas Gvozdyk/Beterbiev is more even in that regard.

    On a side note, I wish Adonis would have fought Beterbiev as Artur would not have been as cautious. He would have walked right through Stevenson.
