The sport of bareknuckle boxing has produced yet another brutal knockout as an event in Russia saw one fighter sparked out by a devastating right hand.
Fans of the Top Dog Fighting Championship were treated to the knockout blow at their TDFC13 event in Moscow on April 1, with Marsel Khanov taking on Vladislav 'Iz' Romaschenko. The bout was a rematch between the pair of bareknuckle fighters after Khanov had won via a first-round knockout when they met in September last year.
Khanov won via an opening-round knockout once again this time around, leaving Romaschenko in a heap on the floor.
He caught Romaschenko with a vicious overhand right that immediately sent his opponent to the floor and caused the referee to step in.
Romaschenko was able to haul himself off the ground and away from the hay bales that made up the edge of the ring as the referee began his count.
However, with Romaschenko stumbling backward once on his feet and unable to raise his hands for the referee, the fight was waved off, sending Khanov crazy.

This was a similar conclusion to their first meeting in September, which Khanov also won via a knockout in the first round.
On that occasion, he rocked Romaschenko with a left hook, leaving him frozen whilst still on his feet, before sending him crashing to the floor with a one-two combination before the referee pulled him away.
The Top Dog Fighting Championship has become one of Russia's most popular combat sport promotions since it began broadcasting fights at the start of 2020.
Whilst the promotion focuses on bareknuckle fighting, unlike many of the other promotions in Russia which include 'freak show' fights and other unique bouts, it has earned a legion of fans with millions tuning in for each fight card.
That popularity is down to the offering of brutal knockouts, like the one produced by Khanov, with many other TDFC bouts ending in devastating fashion.
