Light heavyweight prospect Oleksandr Gvozdyk faced veteran and former world title challenger Nadjib Mohammedi tonight on the Pacquiao-Bradley III undercard in Las Vegas, and to say it was an impressive showing for the 28-year-old Ukrainian, now living in California, would be an understatement.

In another early contender for KO of the Year, Gvozdyk (10-0, 8 KO) smashed Mohammedi (37-5, 23 KO) at 2:06 of the the second round:

A bronze medalist at the 2012 Olympic games in London, Gvozdyk has been very impressive thus far as a professional, and ranked as our No. 4 prospect at 175 pounds at the end of 2015. Watching what he did to Mohammedi, a decent pro fighter himself, maybe he should have been a little higher. It's a good division for prospects, but good heavens, this is straight up nasty.
