Unbeaten light heavyweight 2012 Olympian Oleksandr Gvozdyk (11-0, 9 KOs) had to get up off the deck from a 1st round knockdown to come back and defeat former two-time world title challenger Tommy Karpency (26-6-1, 15 KOs) by a 6th round knockout on Saturday night on HBO pay-per-view from the MGM Grand, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Gvozdyk, 29, dropped Karpency with a right to the body in round six. Referee Kenny Bayless then counted Karpency after he failed to get back to his feet. The official time of the stoppage was at 2:21 of the 6th. #6 WBC, #10 IBF, #14 WBO Gvozdyk was knocked down in round one by a short right hand to the head from Karpency. Gvozdyk got back to his feet and was clearly hurt. However, he was able to make it out of the round due to there not being much time left. In the knockdown sequence, Gvozdyk was holding Karpency’s head down with his left hand and hitting him with a right uppercut at the time that Karpency nailed him with a right to the head. Gvozdyk wasn’t expecting to get hit because he was holding and hitting. It was an illegal move by the Ukrainian fighter and he paid for it. http://www.boxingnews24.com/2016/07/oleksandr-gvozdyk-vs-tommy-karpency-results/
