Avtandil Khurtsidze, a human brick wall barreling forward, upset previously unbeaten Middleweight contender Antoine Douglas with a thoroughly dominating 10th-round TKO.

The 35-year-old “mini-Mike Tyson” plowed forward from the opening bell until the TKO at 0:33 of the 10th.

The 6-foot Douglas had no answer for his 5-foot-4 opponent, a Brooklyn-based native of Georgia who is looking to become the first world champion from the former Soviet nation.

Khurtsidze (32-2-2, 21 KOs) hurt Douglas (19-1-1, 13 KOs) with a big left in the opening seconds of the third round, sending the 23-year-old face forward through the ropes.

Somehow, Douglas recovered from the first knockdown of his career and fought himself back into the fight.

The Washington, D.C., native rallied to win the fourth and the fifth rounds, and the all-action sixth could have gone either way.
