Avtandil Khurtsidze stops Tommy Langford for WBO interim title

Avtandil Khurtsidze (33-2-2 22KOs) picked up the WBO interim middleweight title over Tommy Langford (18-1 6KOs) from the Leicester Arena, Leicester, Leicestershire, United Kingdom.

Khurtsidze a heavy favorite going into the bout despite having to travel overseas split the first four rounds with Langford, but Langford got an irrational boost in confidence as he started aggressive in the fifth round which saw a left hook send him to the canvas to stop the fight.

The fight sets up Khurtsidze to fight WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders (24-0 12KOs).
