The Bomb Factory, Dallas, Texas - In a crossroads encounter, Jamshidbek Najmitdinov (19-2, 15 KOs) blasted out Charles Hatley in two rounds.
Najmitdinov bounces back after suffering a five round stoppage loss at the hands of Will Madera in October as part of a Triller Fight Club card at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Najmitdinov was up on the cards when he suffered an arm injury and was unable to continue.
Hatley (30-3-1, 21 KOs) was riding a four fight win streak that dates back to his 2017 knockout loss to junior middleweight champion Jermell Charlo. In his last fight, Hatley stopped Fredrick Lawson in the tenth round in September of 2021.
