Hassan N’Dam declared he was willing to die in the ring after the referee stopped his clash with Janibek Alimkhanuly.

The middleweight was defeated by the dominant Alimkhanuly in a middleweight clash which featured on the undercard of Terence Crawford’s victory over Shawn Porter.

N’Dam has previously fought the likes of Callum Smith and Martin Murray and has held a middleweight world title twice during his career.

He was rescued by referee Kenny Bayliss who stopped the contest to prevent N’Dam taking a further bating.

But the beaten man screamed: “No, no, no. I’m ready to die” as the official stepped in.

The optimistic Cameroonian was eager to continue in the fight despite being comprehensively outboxed during his ten-round bout.

An initial knockdown prompted the dominant performance from Alimkhanuly who dropped his opponent to the canvas with a vicious shot in the third stanza.

The Kazakh star then made his next breakthrough after a series of shattering shots in the eighth round, with the referee jumping in and ending the fight despite N’Dam’s pleas.

N’Dam had never been stopped inside the distance during his 17-year professional career and was clearly bemused with the stoppage as he slipped to his sixth defeat in Las Vegas.

His opponent improved his undefeated record to eleven career victories and looks menacing at 160lbs as he plots a path to a world title shot.

The card was headlined by Crawford’s latest welterweight tilt with challenger Porter who was trying to dethrone the undefeated WBO champion.

But Crawford produced another stunning display to become the first man to stop Porter inside the distance after the 34-year-old’s father waved the white towel in surrender during the tenth stanza.

The champion faced a tough battle to retain welterweight supremacy with his opponent starting at a ferocious pace doing his best to control the pace with expeditious aggression.

But Crawford began controlling the fight after switching stance before his hard-earned breakthrough came to fruition in the 10th.

He dropped his opponent with a whipping left hand before sending Porter crumpling back to the canvas with a right hand after he returned to his feet.

The double knockdown signalled the end of the contest and another resounding victory for one of the world’s leading pound-for-pound fighters.

And Crawford is now targeting an illustrious welterweight showdown with Errol Spence after competing in his final bout with Top Rank.

“I tried to fight the other champions in the division, and that didn’t happen, so I went to the next best thing,” Crawford said.

“That boy [Spence] said he would never be at my fights and now he’s at my fights, you already know who I want.

“I’ve been calling him out all day. Maybe I’ll go up to 154. Maybe if Spence gets his tail out of his butt, he’ll fight me.”
