Klitschko vs Haye Undercard: Ola Afolabi Blasts Terry Dunstan in First Round

Cruiserweight contender Ola Afolabi knocked out 42-year-old veteran Terry Dunstan with a vicious right hand at the end of the first round, sending Dunstan's gum shield flying and ending the fight with authority.

Afolabi (17-2-3, 8 KO) served as a chief sparring partner for Wladimir Klitschko for today's big main event, and looked in great shape for this fight. After the bout, Afolabi even noted that he's going to not be as lazy as he was in the past, and said that he hopes for a rematch with titlist Marco Huck. Huck defeated Afolabi in a competitive bout in December 2009 in Germany.

The news has also come down that Klitschko vs Haye is "100% on" for its scheduled time, and that the weather will not delay or cancel the big event. It has also been reported that the mat will be replaced shortly before the fight so that Haye and Klitschko will be working on a fresh canvas.

It's also worth noting that the crowd is already fairly rowdy, though obviously nowhere near what they'll be for the main event. The British fans are making their presence known and haven't even gotten started yet.
