Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez viciously knocked out Sergey Kovalev to claim a world championship in his fourth weight division on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
A brutal straight right hand in the 11th crumpled Kovalev to the floor, earning Canelo the WBO light-heavyweight title.
The Mexican superstar had jumped two divisions and a close, cagey fight seemed destined for the judges’ scorecards until he exploded into life with an impressive stoppage.
