WBA cruiserweight champion Yunier ‘The KO Doctor’ Dorticos (22-0, 21 KOs) scored an explosive second round KO over Dmitry ‘Russian Hammer’ Kudryashov (21-2, 21 KOs) in a World Boxing Super Series quarterfinal matchup on Saturday night at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Dorticos opened up in round two and a crushing right hand laid out Kudryashov to end it. Time was 2:10.

Dorticos will now fight the winner between IBF champ Murat Gassiev and Krzysztof Wlodarczyk.

“I knew that he was going to come at me and I waited and delivered the shot,” said Dorticos. “Once it landed I knew it was over….I want to prove to the world that I am the best cruiserweight in the world right now. I know that I want to fight Murat Gassiev. I know he’s watching me, and I’ll be watching him. If he can take care of business, I would love to fight him. I’m ready to make that fight happen.”

“I’m very upset right now,” said Kudryashov. “I was very well prepared. We’re at a heavy weight and one punch can change everything. He hit me with a good shot and I have no excuses. I thought that I would be able to get up at the eight count but the ref decided to stop the fight. The ref knows when to stop the fight so I agreed with it. All respect to Dorticos but I was expecting a victory and I was expecting to stop him. I have to give him all the credit tonight.”
