Shumenov KOs Joppy in Six
Posted by Ramon Aranda on 01.08.2011



WBA light heavyweight titlist Beibut Shumenov (11-1, 7 KOs) retained his title via 6th round KO over former middleweight titlist William Joppy at the Ice Mansion in Shymkent, Kazakhstan.

Joppy (39-6-2, 30 KOs) replaced WBO titlist Juergen Braehmer, who last Monday night pulled out of the fight with Shumenov.

The former Kazakhstan Olympian, floored Joppy in the 5th round with a right hand and moments into the 6th, dropped him with a left hook that put him down for the count.

"I'm happy but still want to be the undisputed light heavyweight champion of the world," Shumenov said after the fight. "That is my goal. I took a little while to get to Joppy because I had prepared four months to fight a southpaw.

"I can go toe-to-toe or move and box. I'm trying to learn everything to be the best, using my power and speed. He's (head trainer Kevin Barry) the greatest. I listened to my corner. I want to fight the best - the other three world champions. I can't be considered the best until I've beaten the other three champions."
