Photos: Usyk Makes Debut, Uzelkov Stops Codrington

Kiev, Ukraine - Jaidon Condrington (21-4, 17 KOs) was unable to take advantage of declining Ukrainian light heavyweight Vyacheslav Uzelkov (30-3, 19 KOs), and saw himself get stopped in round six. In the sixth, he caught Condrington several times - first with body shots and then going to the head. Condrington tried to retaliate and paid a dear price, missing with his left to eat a monster left hook to the chin. It's where he had stumbled back to the ropes, ate two more shots with a closing right hand to the body sending him to the canvas. He actually beat the count but referee Yuri Koptsev asked him several questions in close, and the waved the bout off. TKO 6 for Uzelkov, who acquired a vacant IBO I/C title.

Another Olympic champion has kicked off his paid career with a bang, as 2012 London and 2011 Baku WC gold medalist Olexander Usyk (1-0, 1 KO) knocked out his Mexican opponent Felipe Romero (16-8-1, 11 KOs) in the fifth round of a one-sided beating.

Dang.... Codrington got checked again

Did Usyk decide on cruiser or heavyweight in the end? Haven't seen the whole fight but the KD and the KO looked nice. Love the Ukraine style of fighting, forces their opponents to fight at a pace they aren't comfortable…
