By Alex Potapov at ringside

WBF featherweight champion Timur Akhundov (15-2-1, 5 KOs) won by unanimous decision in a spectacular battle against Khavazhy Khatsyhau (10-2, 6 KOs) on Saturday night at the AKKO International in Kiev, Ukraine. Throughout the fight, Akhundov was very fast, working behind a great jab and was always aggressive. Khatsyhau looked to counterpunch and was less mobile in the ring. Scores were 117-111, 117-112 and 119-109 for Akhundov.

Unbeaten light welterweight Daniyar Hanyk (10-0, 4 KOs), coming back after two years of inactivity, easily outboxed Volodymyr Harabuga (8-3-1). Hanyk severely beat his opponent over ten rounds and Harabuga’s face was already busted up by the fifth round, but he had the courage to stay in there. Scored 100-89, 100-90 and 99-91, Hanyk wins the vacant UBA Intercontinental title.

Georgian welterweight journeyman Alexander Benidze (13-13-2, 6 KOs), who lives in Kiev, easily beat Stanyslav Savarin (0-2) by TKO in the first round.

Georgian journeyman Vepkhia Tchilaia (11-11-1, 7 KOs) won by knockout in the first round over Kostyantyn Novikov (0-1).

Cruiserweight Oleksandr Okhrey (2-3, 2 KOs) scored a spectaular third round KO over debuting Dmytro Zayats (0-1). In the first round, boxres always waged war strikes at close range. In the second round with a right hook sent Ohrey opponent to the canvas. He was able to get up, but took heavy punishment in the third.
