London (AP) — Dominica boxer Lenin Castillo was taken to the hospital on a stretcher after a devastating knockout by British opponent Callum Smith on Saturday.
Event promoter Eddie Hearn, 33-year-old Castillo, needs medical staff treatment at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium ring in one of the undercard battles of the world heavyweight title match between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk. After that, he said that he had “reacted”.
Castillo appeared to have cramps after hitting the canvas, and referee Bob Williams immediately stopped the fight in the second round.
Smith jumped on a rope after a knockdown in his first fight after losing to super middleweight Canelo Alvarez in December, but his celebration worried about who seemed to be hit by a flash at the temple. Was shortened.
Lawrence O’Cally then succeeded in defending his WBO cruiserweight title for the first time with a stoppage in the third round of the previously undefeated Montenegro Dilamprazovich.
O’Corey had already been forced to steal his knees after being released from the headlock and landing a large left on the unbalanced ribs of his opponent after a vicious uppercut in the second round.
The umpire counted Prazovic, who frowned in pain and held his side.
London-born 28-year-old fighter O’Corey defeated Poland’s Krzysztofgrowakki in March to win a vacant WBO belt.
