Ganiev vaporizes 3K Battery in :22

By Alexey Uralets (ringside) and Alexey Sukachev

Rising lightweight Dmitry Ganiev (11-0-1, 5 KOs) scored the biggest win of his yet short pro career with the first-round annihilation of well-known yet severely shopworn Thai veteran Fahsang 3K Battery (59-10-2, 35 KOs). Ganiev, headlining the local event, arranged by German Titov Promotions and Pushka Promotions today in Ekaterinburg, went right at 3K Battery and immediately floored him with a left uppercut, which ended the contest at 0:22 of the very first round. Ganiev, ranked #14 by the WBO, retained his PABA and WBO Asia Pacific titles in the process.

Russian junior welterweight banger Ruslan Provodnikov (13-0, 8 KOs) tuned up in the wake of his first stern test in career with an easy stoppage of Uzbek trialhorse Mahsud Jumaev (2-7-1). Provodnikov rocked his foe at the end of the second round with a variety of effective punches both to the head and body, and Jumaev failed to get from the stool during the break between the second and the third. Provodnikov will face no other than Breidis Prescott (21-1, 18 KOs) in his next fight on Nov. 28 in Samara.

WBA #10 heavyweight Denis Bakhtov (31-5, 20 KOs) looked for the single punch to finish off Uzbek journeyman Sherzod Mamajanov (6-11, 2 KOs) and he found him in the fourth round. It was left hook to the liver, which had finally crushed the durable guest.

2008 Beijing light welterweight gold medalist Felix Diaz (3-0, 2 KOs) of Dominican Republic, who is promoted by German Titov, made his debut on Russian soil with a unanimous decision against Russian Vyacheslav Yakovenko (7-7-1, 3 KOs) over four rounds. Yakovenko was floored in the second by Diaz’s right hook but kept coming anyway.

Lightweight hope and former amateur standout for Greece Theodoros (Fedor) Papazov (2-0, 2 KOs) iced veteran Marcel Kasimov (15-20-1, 11 KOs) twice with the right cross and the left hook in the first and had his job done.

Beijing super heavyweight bronze medalist Vyacheslav Glazkov (2-0) outpointed Russian veteran Alexey Varakin (28-17-3, 18 KOs) over four. Welterweight Dmitry Mikhailenko (2-0) outpointed no-hoper Kirill Artemiev (1-16) also over four rounds.
