Action fighter Sergey “The Crusher” Kovalev (21-0, 19 KOs) lived up to his nickname by stopping game Cornelius “Da Beast” White (21-2, 16 KOs) at the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The bout was the co-feature on NBC Sports Net Fight Night series.

Kovalev wasted no time going after the taller White in the opening stanza. He dug combinations to the body and head. White answered with a stiff jab, but his follow up salvo's missed. Kovalev unloaded a left hook that caused White to stumble.
 

His non-stop punching had White confused and hurt. A hard left-right at the bell staggered White.
 

Kovalev landed 29 power punches in round one. 
 

In round two, Kovalev continued his assault. His jab, mostly quiet in round one, opened a cut over the right eye of White. A left to the body and right to the head wobbled White. A lead right also landed. "Da Beast" tried to battle back. He connected with a good right of his own near the end of the round.
 

Kovalev continued his domination in round three. A left to the liver stung White. An immediate four-punch combo, the final shot a jab, dropped White a few seconds later.  
 

White was up at six, but hurt. His legs were rubbery. The end was near and White seemed to sense it. He fired a wild right that missed.  Kovalev unloaded a barrage of punches that knocked White sideways. A final left hook floored White for the second time. White hauled himself up again and tried to stay away from the onrushing Kovalev, but his legs betrayed him. Three right hands, punctuated by a long left hook put White down for the final time.  Referee Gary Rosato waved off the fight.
 

The time was 1:42 of round three.

"I feel I'm getting better," said the powerful Russian in the ring after the fight.
 

"I was shocked that he (White) kept getting up,” he added.
