Ievgen Khytrov has stopped Julius Kennedy at 2:29 of the fifth round. Khytrov was very accurate throughout the contest as he battered Kennedy around the ring. Kennedy, to his credit, tried to stay in the contest. By the fifth round, however, Khytrov had done enough damage for referee Brent Bovell to stop the contest.
Khytrov is now 3-0, three KO's. Kennedy drops to 7-8-1, three KO's.
