Each time Artur Beterbiev landed another shot, they seemed to grow louder at ringside.

Oleksandr Gvozdyk was waning with each body shot, with each head shot.

Finally, Gvozdyk succumbed, and Beterbiev, the IBF light heavyweight beltholder, unified the light heavy title by taking away the WBC belt Gvozdyk held with a 10th-round stoppage.

At the time of the stoppage, Gvozdyk was up on the scorecards of judges John McKaie (87-84) and Ron McNair (86-85), while judge John Poturaj had it 87-83 for Beterbiev.
