Watch 'knockout of the year' as 'animal' Filip Hrgovic leaves opponent out cold on the ropes in brutal stoppage

HEAVYWEIGHT boxing sensation Filip Hrgovic secured the 'KO of the year' with a brutal demolition of Alexandre Kartozia.

The 28-year-old Croatian has been talked up as a potential world title challenger.


And he showed his supreme power at a Sauerland show out in Denmark.

Hrgovic managed to get his Greek opponent, who was a late stand-in, out of there in the second round.

It meant the Zagreb-born heavyweight, nicknamed 'El Animal', moved to 11 undefeated as a professional.

He is also the WBC International champ.

Hrgovic won a bronze medal at the 2016 Olympics and is ranked in the top ten in both the WBC and IBF official rankings.

His promoters Sauerland uploaded a clip to Twitter of the devastating finish, captioning it: "KO of the year from 'El Animal'".

One fellow boxer who thinks Hrgovic will be the next big thing in the sport is Tom Little.

The Brit was stopped in the fourth round by Hrgovic in January 2018 and tasted the Croatian's power first hand.

He told Sky Sports: "Hrgovic will be the next dominating force when Tyson Fury hangs up his gloves. He is that good.

"He will be another such heavyweight as Wladimir Klitschko.

"Hrgovic is the standout prospect and the one that can have longevity and success. Hrgovic is so, so clever.

"You won't find another heavyweight as explosive, who hits as hard as him, apart from Deontay Wilder.

"That's the sort of power he hits with. That is the sort of punch power he carries."
