Bektemir Melikuziev has completely resumed his ‘Bully’ techniques.

The 2016 Olympic Silver medalist from Shoimbek, Uzbekistan extended his provide three-fight win streak with a one-sided, third-round knockout of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Sladan Janjanin (32-11, 24KOs). Melikuziev scored 3 knockdowns in as many rounds, in any case producing a stoppage at 2:18 of round 3 in their DAZN-televised opener Saturday evening time at Dickies Area in Fort Value, Texas.

Melikuziev—who trains out of Indio, California—didn’t waste any time concentrated at the body of Janjanin, who was fighting for the fourth time in 2022 and 2nd time in merely 3 weeks. The Bosnian journeyman was floored fairly 0:30 into the DAZN opener, absorbing a wicked left hand downstairs. Melikuziev spent the rest of the round stalking Jananin and throwing herbal heat.

Janjanin found out himself once more on the canvas midway through round two. Melikuziev took the attack upstairs, cracking Janjanin with a left hand and correct hook to offer his 2nd knockdown in lower than 5 minutes. His instinct to throw each punch with knockout intentions prompted head instructor Joel Diaz to suggest punching in combination to better organize the eventual knockout.

The advice was carried out, with Janjanin spending round 3 beneath siege and increasingly more no longer in a position to offer protection to himself. A winging left hand to the liver provided Melikuziev in conjunction with his 1/3 knockdown of the struggle. An ensuing flurry of power images left Jananin (32-12, 24KOs) defenseless, forcing referee Neal More youthful to forestall the contest.

Melikuziev improves to 10-1 (8KOs), along with a few knockout wins in his 2022 advertising and marketing marketing campaign. The brusing Uzbek wins his 1/3 in an instant following his lone career defeat in a shocking third-round knockout to Gabriel Rosado ultimate June in El Paso.

Headlining the show, local hero and rising contender Vergil Ortiz Jr. (18-0, 18KOs) faces England’s Michael McKinson (22-0, 2KOs) in a scheduled 12-round welterweight determine eliminator.
