There was very little between the two men in the first round, which ended 3-3. However, Usyk came on strong in the second.
A heavy body shot had the Russian on the floor and the referee administered the count. Once he was up, the referee then warned the Ukrainian for what he thought was a kidney shot.
That seemed to suck the life out of Beterbiev, before a big left hook from the Uuyk rocked him further. The Russian looked unsteady on his feet for just a second.
Usyk continued to pound on his opponent in the final round and went on to claim a 17-13 decision.
