Canelo Alvarez landed a left-right late in the 11th round Saturday night, dropping Sergey Kovalev to the canvas and ending their light heavyweight title fight.
Kovalev was left on his knees, his arms draped over the middle ring rope as the fight was stopped at 2:15 of the round in Las Vegas.
It was a dramatic finish for a fight that had little drama up to the knockdown. Kovalev was more than holding his own late in the fight and hadn't been hurt when Alvarez landed the left followed by a right.
