Grove looked huge in that fight, didn't take him long either:
Round 1 – This is a heavyweight tournament semifinal bout. Huge leg kick from Grove. Again. Another big kick by Gove to the body and Oleinik goes down. Grove follows up with ferocious punches and ground and pound and the ref stops the fight. Oleinik has big lumps on his head. Forty-five seconds flat. Jimmy Smith thinks the ref may have stopped it a bit early but it was not a terrible call by any stretch of the imagination. Grove moves into the finals, will fight the winner of Grabowski vs. Konrad.
OFFICIAL RESULT: Neil Grove def. Alexey Oleinik by TKO (punches) Rd 1 (0:45)
