The hometown kid 🇺🇸Montana Love (16-0-1, 8KO) gets the love from his Cleveland faithful, as he dominated former IBF Junior-Welterweight titlist 🇷🇺🇧🇾Ivan Baranchyk (20-3-0, 13KO) in what was a boxing clinic of sorts, exploiting Ivan’s weaknesses in ways that they weren’t taken advantage of prior, and Love picked up the massive victory to push his career forward as a rising contender.
An entertaining fight, Montana caught Ivan with a beautiful counter uppercut that took his legs away, and dropped him at the end of the 7th round. The Ref cleared him for the round to end, but Baranchyk’s Manager, perhaps from the ghosts of his fighters previous FOTY bout with 🇺🇸Jose Zepeda, put an end to the fight for his fighter, and friends safety concerning recent events regarding the 28 year old.
Cleveland rejoiced seeing their local guy Love show what he could do on the grand scale, and he remains undefeated in his pursuit towards more notable matches. He called out the King of the division in Undisputed Junior-Welterweight Champion 🏴Josh “Tartan Tornado” Taylor, and 🇺🇸Gervonta “Tank” Davis, so it has been made abundantly clear that he personally believes he is ready to take a major step up in competition against the cream of the crop at the 140 lb. weight.
