Olympic bronze medalist Joshua Buatsi continues his undefeated professional record to 14-0 with a brutal knockout of Daniel Dos Santos.
Frenchman Dos Cantos was also undefeated heading into the fight with 15 wins, 8 KO’s but lacked any creditable opposition on his record. Dos Santos turned his life around with boxing after a lengthy period in prison and he clearly tried his best to remain in the fight but Buatsi was too much for him.
With new trainer Virgil Hunter in the corner, Buatsi dropped Dos Santos in the second round with a right hand punch but in the fourth, Buatsi unleashed a powerful right hand which knocked out Dos Santos on his feet and he dropped heavily to the canvas.
Dos Santos was tearful at the end of the fight and the humble as well as respectful as ever Buatsi , offer his opponent respect and words of encouragement.
It was a dominate display and sent a statement to rivals in the light-heavyweight division. Buatsi retained his WBA international title and continued his march towards a world title fight in the future.
The world titles in the light-heavyweight division are held by Artur Beterbiev (WBC & IBF), Dmitry Bivol (WBA) and Joe Smith Jr (WBO).
