Hrgovic stops Radonjic, remains unbeaten

IBF #4, WBC #9, WBO #13 heavyweight Filip “El Animal” Hrgovic (13-0, 11 KOs) crushed previously unbeaten Marko Radonjic (22-1, 22 KOs) on Friday night at Wörthersee Stadium in Klagenfurt, Austria. Hrgovic was careful of Radonjic’s power in round one, but he dropped Radonjic FOUR times in round two. Radonjic was down again in round three but survived. When Radonjic came out for round four, the referee immediately waved it off.

According to Hrgovic’s promoter, all of the IBF top 15 turned down the opportunity to face him in a final eliminator to become mandatory challenger for Anthony Joshua’s heavyweight crown.

  • Brave guy that Montenegrin! He wasn’t in there to take no dive. I call him a winner too even tho he got beat up. Maybe he could fight in the new bridgerweight class.

  • Ok i think we all knew what was going to happen, too much levels between them. Radonjic was tough and give his all but was really outclassed. Hrgovic is no joke like his amateur palmares is showing, the heavyweight division is really full of very good and interesting prospects. Can’t wait to see them mixed together..

  • Need to be careful in the nickname apartment, there was a good fighter that already used that nickname.

  • Despite the fact that he got dropped five times in three rounds, Radonjic did better than I thought he would and most certainly showed some heart. Full credit to him.

  • Wow! Just watched this video. Radinjic was absolutely terrible. Seriously, this guy‘s record should be more like 2-20. But what was more revealing is Hrgovic it’s pretty dismal himself. I have heard a lot about him, but now that I’ve actually seen him, he is very slow and very lumbering with his punches. Almost all the knock downs that I witnessed in this fight were from phantom punches. What was this Radonjic character going down from?! Seriously, once Hergovic faces somebody in the top 20, this guy probably gets knocked the F out.

    • HeavyHitters: Yours is the first accurate comment I read here. Absolutely terrible boxer Radonjic is and his record against huge loss opponents (before Hrgovic) showed in this fight.
