Unbeaten middleweight power-puncher Janibek Alimkhanuly (12-0, 8 KOs) made quick work of Danny Dignum (14-1-1, 8 KOs) in the main event of the Top Rank card on ESPN Saturday night.

Alimkhanuly’s feints and one-twos were keeping Dignum off-balance in the first round, eventually sending him to the canvas.

In the second, Alimkhanuly unloaded with a crushing uppercut that knocked out Dignum, prompting the referee to wave it off at 2:11.

With the win, Alimkhanuly earned the interim WBO middleweight title.
