UNBEATEN boxer Elvis Rodriguez proved he’s the King in the ring after he destroyed Dennis Okoth in the second round with a brutal one-punch knockout.
The 24-year-old left his super-lightweight opponent All Shook Up on Tuesday night as the pair fought in a behind closed doors event at Viva Las Vegas.
Rodriguez – who hails from the Dominican Republic – sent Okoth crashing to his opponent after flooring him with a straight left having set up his punch with a jab from the southpaw stance.
Okoth, 26, was snapped on the floor with a dazed and stunned look on his face as the referee immediately waved away the contest.
Rodriguez now has eight victories in his professional career – with all of his wins ending by way of KO – to bring his record to 8-0-1.
And he celebrated his emphatic stoppage by living up to his iconic namesake as he performed an air guitar celebration.
His fight was his second of the month following his win over Danny Murray on July 2, and he is scheduled to return to the ring on August 29 as part of the undercard of Jose Ramirez vs Viktor Postol.
Boxing fans were left impressed by Rodriguez’s performance, as they took to social media to wax lyrical over his outing.
One tweeted: “I like this kid, he’s got a lot of potential but gotta face a real test to see if he’s the truth.”
Another commented: “Love watching this kid fight.”
A third added: “That step to get his right foot outside was smooth af.”
Meanwhile one posted: “Elvis Rodriguez is a very talented kid. #FreddieRoach has a great prospect there. Can’t wait to see him again on August 29th.”
One then quipped: “It’s the face of the guy that knock out for me lol.”
