Boxing News: Frank Sanchez defeated Efe Ajagba via unanimous decision, while Robert Helenius defeated Adam Kownacki via disqualification, and Jared Anderson stopped Vladimir Tereshkin in the second round.
Frank Sanchez stunned Efe Ajagba in a dominant points victory, bringing the Cuban challenger one step closer to a world heavyweight title showdown.
In a duel of unbeaten opponents, Sanchez was a class above Ajagba, as he rocked the Nigerian in the seventh round to seal a unanimous decision with the scoring of 98-91, 98-91, and 97-92 on the Tyson Fury versus Deontay Wilder 3 card.
The 29-year-old, who trains alongside Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, has moved closer in the rankings to a shot at Oleksandr Usyk’s WBO title or Tyson Fury’s WBC title.
Earlier in the evening, Robert Helenius defeated Adam Kownacki by disqualification in their heavyweight rematch after the Polish fighter was penalised for repeated low strikes.
Kownacki had a swollen eye in the first round, and despite a brief rally in the second, he was subjected to a severe assault from Helenius before being penalised for continuous fouls.
Jared ‘Big Baby’ Anderson added to his heavyweight resume with a second-round knockout of Vladimir Tereshkin.
The Top Rank promoted prospect scored another stunning victory, trapping Tereshkin in the corner with a barrage of blows and forcing the referee to intervene.
