HEAVYWEIGHT BAKHODIR JALOLOV’S SHUDDERING KO OF JACK MULOWAYI EXTENDS 100% RECORD
2 months ago

Bakhodir Jalolov’s reputation as a world heavyweight champion in waiting was strengthened after he knocked out Jack Mulowayi to extend his frightening 100% KO record.

The 6’7″ puncher had floored his rival in the sixth round in Verona, NY on Friday night but finished the job in the eighth, connecting with booming left hook to send Mulowayi flat on his back.

Referee Benjy Esteves Jr wasted little time in waving the contest off and, in doing so, confirmed Jalolov moves to 11-0 – with 11 knockouts – as a professional.

“I thought I was going to stop him at the end of the sixth round when I dropped him, but the referee let him continue and the round was over,” said Jalolov.

“I thought that was the time. But I had to wait until the final round. I’m happy that I got the stoppage. I feel like I hurt him three or four times.”

Jalolov, known as the ‘Big Uzbek’, returned to the amateurs to win super heavyweight gold at the Tokyo Olympics last summer, and has scored three vicious KO wins since coming back to the pro ranks.

Jalolov added: “I’m feeling really good about the performance.

“The opponent was at a really good level and a great fighter.

“He was a really tough, durable guy. I landed some big shots on him, and he can take a punch.”
