Former WBC heavyweight champion Samuel Peter and former WBO heavyweight champion Siarhei Liakhovich were both halted inside the distance in their bouts on Saturday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Unbeaten heavyweight Arslanbek Makhmudov (10-0, 10 KOs) scored a first round TKO over 39-year-old Peter (38-9, 31 KOs) in a bout for the NABF title. Makhmudov dropped Peter with a big right hand, then got the stop when he sent “The Nigerian Nightmare” reeling into the corner.
Heavyweight Simon Kean (18-1, 17 KOs) overwhelmed 43-year-old Liakhovich (27-8, 17 KOs) in round ten to claim the vacant WBC international silver title. Kean got a referee’s stoppage when he hurt “The White Wolf” a flurry of punches in the final stanza.
