Wilbeforce Shihepo gave an awesome performance to knock out Janos Olah of Hungary in the first round of their Super Middleweight fight in Offenburg, Germany on Saturday night.
Shihepo dominated the fight from the start and put Olah down with a straight right punch midway through the first round. Olah managed to beat the count, but Shihepo was all over him and once again dropped him to the canvas with a tremendous right uppercut.
Olah once again got up but he was clearly unsteady on his feet and the referee called an end to the fight about 2 minutes into the first round.
