Vicious Buatsi Knocks Out Dos Santos


Joshua Buatsi knocked out Daniel Dos Santos with a brilliant right hand in the fourth round of their fight in Manchester.

The prodigious British talent won the battle of undefeated light-heavyweight contenders with a vicious overhand right which slumped his rival to the canvas.

Buatsi had the feted veteran trainer Virgil Hunter in his corner for the first time and the resounding result puts him on a collision course with the division’s best.

The world titles are held by Artur Beterbiev (IBF and WBC), Dmitry Bivol (WBA) and Joe Smith Jr (WBO) and Buatsi’s chances of challenging for the first time increased after his 14th career win, and his best knockout to date.

Buatsi floored Dos Santos in the second round with a chopping right hand, sending him face-first to the canvas.

In the third, the Frenchman who had turned his life around after a lengthy stint in prison, bundled Buatsi to the floor out of sheer desperation but it only enraged the Brit.

:Buatsi brutally ended the fight in the fourth round

Twenty seconds from the end of the fourth, Buatsi uncorked a perfect right hand which knocked Dos Santos out instantly – on his way down, Buatsi clipped him with another punch.

After Dos Santos recovered and burst into tears, Buatsi respectfully consoled him rather than celebrating.

It was a serious statement after questions were asked when Buatsi emerged from a difficult fight in his previous outing with Marko Calic.

He retained his WBA international belt which keeps him in world title contention.
