Ngannou avenged his blowout loss to Miocic in 2018 by demonstrating

everything he has learned in the ensuing three years during a dominant victory.

 The fight ended quickly after Ngannou won the first round. Miocic recovered from his first knockdown in the second round and even landed a right hand that stung Ngannou.

But the challenger replied with a picture-perfect left hook, depositing Miocic roughly on the canvas again for the finish.

The 34-year-old Ngannou is a former aspiring boxer who discovered mixed martial arts after he left Cameroon for France. 

He rose rapidly through his new sport with his fearsome power and growing all-around skill, but Miocic interrupted his ascent by winning every round of their first bout in Boston.
