Our compatriot had a brilliant fight

Famous Ukrainian featherweight boxer Viktor Slavinskiy (15-2-1, 7 KOs) has won a spectacular victory in the United States. At The Hangar arena in Costa Mesa, California, the 33-year-old native of Mykolaiv knocked out American junior welterweight Derek Harris (12-23-2, 7 KOs) in an 8-round fight.

From the first minutes, the Ukrainian started the fight confidently, constantly working as the number one and forcing his opponent to think more about defense than offense. In the opening round, Slavinsky knocked Harris out with a punch to the liver.

Later on, the Ukrainian fighter's opponent thought only about survival, but in the 4th round he missed some of the hardest "flops" and ended up on the canvas, after which the referee stopped the beating.
