Sergey Kuzmin Stops a Tired David Price in Four Rounds

Wembley Stadium, London - Sergey Kuzmin (13-0, 10 KOs) got the biggest win of his career, when the corner of Olympic bronze medal winner David Price (22-6, 18 KOs) stopped the contest after the fourth round.

Coming in, Price was knocked out in brutal fashion in the fifth round at the hands of Alexander Povetkin back in March at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

Kuzmin is a highly regarded amateur who holds a knockout victory over Olympic silver medal winner Joe Joyce in the unpaid ranks.


Price came out jabbing and throwing punches over the jab of Kuzmin. Price was putting together good combinations. Kuzmin was going to the body, hoping to bring down Price's hands.

At the start of the second, Kuzmin was looking for a big right and and was getting more active with his punches. Price was starting to unload with his own shots to the body. Kuzmin was pressing the fight and starting to land more often with his shots.

Kuzmin continued to press forward, throwing big shots in the third. Price rocked Kuzmin with a good temple shot and then unloaded on him with a series of punches. Price looked very tired at the end of the round as Kuzmin started throwing a lot of punches.

Price still looked tired at the start of the fourth, as Kuzmin was pressing. Price was holding and Kuzmin was throwing heavy hands. Kuzmin landed a good right hand and Price took it well. Price later landed a good right, but still appeared very tired.

After the fourth round ended, the corner of Price stopped the fight as their boxer was exhausted - and the corner told the referee that Price had suffered an arm injury during the fight.

[QUOTE=Eff Pandas;19130592]I thought it was gonna be competitive & it was more or less so it made sense to throw some money on Price at the crazy odds for a even-ish fight. I didn't think Price was gonna be a…

Didn't see the fight but he seems like the stereotypical "4 round boxer" Mayweather always used to refer to. I'm guessing he got paid well anyway (maybe 100k) so is what it is at least he didn't get a horrific…
