#ShoBox: Ivan Baranchyk Makes Easy Work of Nicholas Givhan

Ivan ‘The Beast’ Baranchyk (10-0, 9 KOs), from Russia but fighting out of Brooklyn, NY, dropped Nicholas Givhan (16-1-1, 10 KOs) :08 into their super lightweight fight last night on #ShoBox and officially stopped him in :21. Givhan came out looking relaxed in a shoulder roll stance and paid the price after getting caught by Baranchyk’s lunging left hook, that was followed by a short right. Givhan is from Kalamazoo, Michigan, which is “not really a hotbed of boxing,” according to blow-by-blow announcer Barry Tompkins. He’s right.
