Elvis Rodriguez is making quite a name for himself as a knockout artist in Las Vegas.
Last month, the super-lightweight prospect flattened Dennis Okoth with a single straight left hand which left him lying on the canvas with a stunned look on his face.

Now, just five weeks later, he’s done the exact same thing to his next opponent.
Again it was a single straight left which put Cody Wilson on the deck.
Rodriguez is now 9-0-1 (9 KOs).
He has scored three consecutive stoppage wins behind closed doors since boxing returned in the COVID-19 era.
HE'S DONE IT AGAIN 🇩🇴🔥
Cue the guitar …
8 pro wins, 8 KOs, and Elvis Rodriguez just scored his latest finish by flooring Dennis Okoth with a thunderous left.#ValdezVelez | LIVE on ESPN | #SCTop10 pic.twitter.com/Q3lgRINf6F

Elvis celebrated by emulating his iconic namesake with an air guitar performance.
In the main event, Jose Ramirez defeated Viktor Postol to retain his WBC and WBO super-lightweight world titles.
He is targeting an undisputed unification with Josh Taylor next, though also has WBO mandatory Jack Catterall waiting for his shot.
