Less than 3 years after losing to Audley, Bonin again traveled to London, England and was again stopped, this time inside a round by the then Cruiserweight kingpin David "The Hayemaker" Haye (who at the time of writing seems to be having fun in an Australian jungle).
Interestingly in his fight before facing Haye, Bonin faced a Slovakian debutant known as Pavel Silvin (0-1). Silvin was genuinely a scary looking bloke, stood at over over 6 foot, with deep set eyes, a shaved head and an angry looking face. To be honest he looked every bit like the stereo typical escaped mental patient, almost as if he'd punched himself out of the hospital that he was being held in.
Sadly Silvin's only real quality was that he looked the part. When it came to boxing he seemed to have genuinely no idea what he was doing in a ring. Within seconds of the opening bell Silvin was pioretting and falling face first on to the canvas, walking around like a man who had gotten lost on his way to the local park and turning all the way around time and time again. What made the bout even funnier was that he actually dropped Bonin inside a minute.
Sadly after dropping Bonin Silvin really did little of note other than act like the crown prince of the ring with punches so wide that he could have hit the crowd, who at times can be heard loudly reacting to the farce in front of them.
Thankfully, for those in attendance this farce only went on for a round and a bit before referee Grzegorz Molenda could mount a rather slow 10 count to Silvin who appeared relieved it was all over.
Thankfully, despite this fight taking place in Poland, Polsat were nice enough to show the fight (on the undercard of Krzysztof Wlodarczyk v Steve Cunningham I) and as a result youtube user 14caratboxing has been able to upload it for us all to watch (both clips were uploaded by the same user).
