Uzbekistan’s Shakhram Giyasov made his initial steps in the pro ranks at the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday night.

Giyasov, the welterweight silver medalist in Rio de Janeiro and gold medalist at last year’s AIBA World Championships, knocked down Nicolas Velazquez (10-3, 3 KOs) less than ten seconds into the fight on a body shot.

It wasn’t initially called a knockdown, but the fight was waived off at the 15-second mark after the Argentinian refused to get back up from the initial volley.
