The Russian fighter scarcely had to get going to defeat the 39-year-old Rahman, who offered little in the way of resistance.

Povetkin opened with a strong left, and controlled the first round against his lethargic opponent.

Rahman found himself on the ropes in the second, and with Povetkin raining down shots the referee stepped in to end the fight.

The 33-year-old improves his record to 25 wins without defeat, while American Rahman slumps to 50 wins, eight losses and two draws.
