That evening, Adam Kownacki , especially without straining, sent Gerald Washington to the knockout in the second round in PBC on the FOX joint show from the Barclays Brooklyn Center.
The athlete (19-0, 15 KO) has once again proved that the first impression is deceptive, showering the opponent (19-3-1, 12 KO) in the first round, more than 100 blows. In the second, he put his opponent in the ring, who tried to level the odds with the start of the round.
The loser rose abruptly, and the referee encouraged him to continue, warning that he would give him only a couple of seconds to confirm that he could continue the fight. The champion went on the attack, made a couple more punctuated strikes, and the referee decided to stop the fight.
The stop time was 1:09 of the second round.
After the fight, the winner claimed that the next challenger was seeing WBC heavyweight champion Deontey Wilder, who was in the crowd, watching the fight.
