HAMBURG, GERMANY -- Alexander Povetkin made short work of Hashim Rahman earlier today in notching his third successful WBA World title defense via a second round TKO.

HAMBURG, GERMANY — Alexander Povetkin (25-0, 17 KOs) made short work of Hashim Rahman (50-8-2, 41 KOs) earlier today in notching his third successful WBA World title defense via a second round TKO.

After stunning Rahman with a right hand in the first, Povetkin badly staggered Rahman in the second with a left hook. Rahman never regained his equilibrium and used his right arm to stay upright while receiving a series of hooks. Another head-jarring left hook would prompt referee Gustavo Padilla to call a halt to matters at the 1:46 mark.
