Zaur Abdullaev was fighting in the United States for the first time and didn’t really looked like a contender against Haney, as he was against former title contender Hank Lundy last year.

Haney controlled every bit of the fight and made it look easy with his well cultured Jab and of course the looping right hand  which he used at will and but the time of the stoppage had scattered Zaur Abdullaev’s that blood dripped from his nose to his toes.

The ring Physician had to made a very close check on the Russian in-between the rounds to ensure he was able to continue and that was the case when the referee got instructed to stop the fight at exactly 3 minutes of round three.
