Highlights

  • –Sergey Lipinets and Levan Ghvamichava started out cautiously for more than a minute before Lipinets started firing big power shots, including right hooks that snaked over Ghvamichava’s guard.

  • –Ghvamichava found success countering with left hands that negated Lipinets’ power and kept the fight close through four rounds.

  • –Lipinets saw his power prevail as he put Ghvamichava down with a nasty left hook to the body that forced an end to the fight at 1:40 of the fifth round.

It was a close fight for 4½ rounds, but when Sergey Lipinets sent Levan Ghvamichava down to one knee with a perfectly placed left hook to the body, it was on one knee Ghvamichava stayed.

In a matchup of fighters hailing from former Soviet republics, the Kazakhstan-born Lipinets used his jab early to try to set up his power shots. Ghvamichava, a native of Georgia, countered effectively with body shots as he battled Lipinets to an early stalemate.

In the fifth, Lipinets pushed Ghvamichava back toward the ropes before landing a glancing overhand right that sent “The Wolf” scurrying across the ring. Lipinets then unleashed a devastating left to the body that stopped his opponent cold. Ghvamichava dropped to his right knee with a grimace on his face and stayed down long past the count of 10 for a knockout at 1:40 of the round.
