In a cold freezing night in Moscow, Russian Alexnader “Knight Alexander” Bakhtin (30-0, 11 KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision against tough Filipino fighter Rolie “Gasolina” Gasca (19-3, 5 KOs) in a clash for the vacant IBO world super bantamweight title fight on Tuesday at the Varshavka Sky.
In the co-main event, Russian lightweight Eduard Troyanovsky (12-0, 9 KOs) came with in a huge height and reach advantage and used it to his advantage to keep tough Filipino Joseph Von Minoza (14-0, 6 KOs) at a distance. Minoza went toe to toe with the lanky Russian in a good action packed fight with Minoza landing some big shots, but in the 6th and 7th rounds, Troyanovsky took control of the fight, and Team Minoza thought he had enough and decided to not come out for the 8th round. Troyanovsky is the new PABA beltholder.
