Russia’s Denis Lebedev stopped Argentina’s Victor Emilio Ramirez in the second round to unify the WBA and IBF cruiserweight titles on Saturday. Lebedev, who came in as the WBA champion, moved well from the start and hit Ramirez with hard left uppercuts early in the second round, eventually knocking down the Argentine. Ramirez beat the count and continued, but within seconds he was overwhelmed by more hammer blows from Lebedev’s left, and the referee stepped in to stop the fight.
