Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

HARD- hit­ting Sergey Ko­valev knocked out Nad­jib Mo­hammedi in the third round of their light heavy­weight cham­pi­onship show­down yesterday. The 32- yearold Rus­sian champ floored the chal­lenger once in the sec­ond round be­fore fin­ish­ing him off at 2min 38sec of the third round in his first ap­pear­ance as a head­line fighter in the box­ing mecca of Las Ve­gas. The un­de­feated Ko­valev scored his 25th knock­out in his 29th fight as he barely broke a sweat against France’s Mo­hammedi, who had won 13 straight fights.
