Filip Hrgovic Easily Beats Marko Radonjic!
(September 10th) Filip Hrgovic made light work of Marko Radonjic on Friday night in Austria at an event which aired Live on DAZN in all but a handful of countries worldwide.
Hrgovic, an undefeated and ranked heavyweight contender who holds the IBF's 'International' title, scored six knockdowns in just four rounds before the main event was called off well ahead of the scheduled 10.
A big right hand in the opening round scored the first knockdown, before Radonjic was dropped a further three times in that stanza. The official allowed the bout to continue, however, and a fifth knockdown by Hrgovic came in round two.
On the undercard, John Ryder halted Slovakia's Jozef Jurko in the fifth round of a six-rounder while prospects Dalton Smith and John Hedges also picked up additional victories.

About Matchroom Boxing
After the success of snooker in the 1980s, Matchroom Sport moved into boxing with two small hall shows followed by Frank Bruno v Joe Bugner at Tottenham Hotspur’s ground – the biggest boxing event of 1987. That launched the company into the boxing big-time, a position it has maintained ever since.
Through the 1990s Matchroom Sport’s boxing roster featured many of the biggest names in the sport including Lennox Lewis, Nigel Benn, Chris Eubank, Steve Collins and Naseem Hamed, all in world title fights and it continues to work with some of the biggest names in UK boxing including Audley Harrison, the 2000 Olympic Super-Heavyweight gold medalist.
Over the years, Matchroom Sport has built up long-standing relationships with broadcasters around the world and with the advent of the Prizefighter phenomenon, the company’s boxing division has never been in a stronger position.
From fantastic six round scraps between the sport’s journeymen, up to multi-million-dollar World Championship contests featuring the above fighters, the Pro Box series has it all. Each show is packed with the very best in boxing action in a series that encompasses almost 25 years of Matchroom Sport’s commitment to bringing the highest quality to the global television market.
