We knew there was something about Ukrainian boxer, Taras Shelestyuk when we were watching the 2012 Olympic Games. In his bouts against Alexis Vastine of France, Freddie Evans of Great Britain and Vasilii Belous of Moldova, he proved that he is well on his way to being a force to be reckoned with.
His career after the Olympics has begun to take off, and while we love a fight to go the distance of 10 or 12 rounds, it is pretty cool to see how quickly he bested Francisco Flores: done in the first round.
