Israil Madrimov gave another exhibition of power to obtain a TKO victory in the sixth round against Charlie Navarro in the Worold Boxing Association eliminator for the Superwelter division at The Ford Center at The Star in Frisco Texas.


The Uzbek gave no respite to his Venezuelan opponent and imposed his physical supremacy from the first moment to make it clear that he is a serious contender for the black and gold belt of the pioneer sanctioning body.


Madrimov knocked down Navarro twice, first with a blow to the middle zone and then with a hook to the head in the sixth round. After the accumulated punishment the referee preferred waving the count at the second knockdown and decreed the TKO for the 25-year-old fighter.


“The Dream” got his fifth Knockout in the same number of fights and keeps moving up in his aspirations to become World Champion, on the other hand, the veteran Navarro’s new record is 29 wins, 10 losses and 22 Knockouts.
