Croatia’s best boxer, 25-year-old heavyweight Filip Hrgovic, has made it two big knockouts from his first two professional fights.
Hrgovic has scored a first-round knockout in his second fight on Friday in Schwerin, Germany against Czech champion Pavel Sour.
The powerful Croatian was too good for Sour, who was previously undefeated, going from the attack from the opening bell and knocking out after a series of big blows.

Hrgović, who won bronze at the Rio Olympics last summer, turned professional last month and was too good for Brazilian Zumbano Love in his debut fight, winning by TKO in just over 90 seconds.
The Croatian, who was chosen to be Wladimir Klitschko’s sparring partner, signed to become part of leading German promoters Team Sauerland earlier this month.
Team Sauerland believes the Croatian has what it takes to become the heavyweight champion in the near future.
