Video: Alexander Povetkin KO’s David Price with a savage left hook



Alexander Povetkin (34-1) retained his WBA Inter-Continental and WBO International Heavyweight titles tonight by knocking out David Price (22-5) in the 5th round in front of a packed house in Cardiff, Wales.

Things got interesting in the third when the much larger Price — he stands 6 ft 8 in and weighed in at 256 lbs — rocked Povetkin (6 ft 2 in, 229 lbs) in the third with a counter left hook that back him into the corner. Referee in charge Howard Foster would call deem it a knockdown for Price. This came in the same round that would see Povetkin knockdown Price with a left hook. With both men respecting one another’s power, the fourth round became more a a reset round for both fighters.

In the 5th, Povetkin ended the contest with a vicious overhand right/left hook combo that sent Price directly to the canvas, where he would lay flat on his back to spend an unconscious moment as Foster waved off the fight.

Povetkin-Price served as the co-main event to the highly anticipated Heavyweight Title unification bout between Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker.
