Ola Afolabi Looks Deadly, Wants Denis Lebedev Next

Hamburg, Germany - Terry Dunstan was left to ponder retirement after suffering a brutal first-round knockout defeat by Ola Afolabi on the big David Haye vs. Wladimir Klitschko card in Hamburg on Saturday night. The 42-year-old former British champion had hoped to line up one final major fight, but Afolabi quickly extinguished his ambitions with a huge right hand in the opener. Following the win, Afolabi called for a fight with hard hitting Denis Lebedev, among several others.

Dunstan had pumped out range finding jabs in the first minute of the fight, but Afolabi soon bullied the veteran to the ropes and landed a succession of cuffing right hands.

The Londoner was clearly hurt and Afolabi refused to let him off the hook as he easily evaded a weak Dunstan jab before unleashing a devastating overhand right which sent his opponent crashing to the canvas.

Dunstan never looked like beating the count and the referee quickly waved off the contest.

The Englishman eventually rose to his feet, but this crushing defeat may now convince him to hang up his gloves.

So, he beat an old guy whose claim to fame was getting KO'd by a terrible cruiserweight belt holder 13 years ago and now he wants Lebedev? Good luck but somebody more legit might have been a better warmup
