“Relieved of his title and undefeated record, Gvozdyk remains one of the best light-heavyweights in the world. A knockout loss to Beterbiev puts you in growing company and does nothing to belittle your accomplishments. Gvozdyk showed world-class skills in being ground down. He moved well in the early rounds, circling right (away from Beterbiev’s right hand) and cracking the code of Beterbiev’s guard with sharp combinations. Indeed, Gvozdyk was ahead on two cards at the fight’s end. But how many fighters are better at rendering such tallies moot than Beterbiev?”
