The Kazakh Janibek Alimkhanuly gave the Argentine a destructive knockout Gonzalo Gaston Coria Friday night in Las Vegas, in one of the most spectacular hits of the weekend.
When talking about a Kazakh puncher, it is impossible not to think of that destructive and terrifying coldness of Gennady Golovkin, the top puncher to come out of Kazakhstan.
Alimkhanuly’s brutal knockout of Gonzalo Coria
And he showed it in his fight against Coria, whom he tortured during the two rounds that the fight lasted. Alimkhanuly he dropped the Argentine in the first round. And then he finished it in the second.
The might of Alimkhanuly was evident at the time of the knockout, as he first injured Coria with a right hook, while receiving a blow from the Argentine. But an instant later, the Kazakh landed a brutal left hook to the jaw of Coria who fell disconnected, tangled in the ropes in a dramatic scene.
The knockout looks even more eerie seen from ringside, where the harshness of the blow was heard raucously in a place without an audience.
