Khomitsky stuns Buglioni, Chambers wins ‘Fast’

Super middleweight Sergey Khomitsky (29-10-2, 12 KOs) scored an upset sixth round TKO over previously unbeaten Frank Buglioni (12-1, 9 KOs) on Saturday night at the Copper Box in London. Khomitsky methodically broke down Buglioni and hurt Buglioni badly in round six. After a standing eight-count, Buglioni’s corner stopped the fight. Time was 1:04. Khomitsky claimed the WBO European super middleweight title.

Heavyweight Eddie Chambers (38-4, 19 KOs) lived up to his nickname “Fast” and smashed Moses Matovu (5-40-4, 0 KOs) inside one round, finishing off the Belfast based Ugandan with a big right hand at 1:10.

In another upset, cruiserweight Ovill McKenzie (22-12, 11 KOs) demolished reigning Commonwealth champion Tony Conquest (13-2, 5 KOs). McKenzie floored the heavily favored Conquest in round three and put him down for the count in round five.

In a third upset, former amateur star Georgie Kean (3-1, 1 KO) suffered his first pro loss against William Warburton (12-60-3, 2 KOs) in a welterweight clash.

Unbeaten middleweight Chris Eubank Jr (14-0, 9 KOs) landed a left uppercut that knocked Sandor Micsko (22-6-2, 16 KOs) out cold in round two. Time was 1:43.

Welterweight Bradley Skeete (16-0, 5 KOs) stopped Giuseppe Loriga (27-4-2, 6 KOs) in the seventh round. Skeete couldn’t miss with a sharp left jab and hard right and traded with Loriga at times, coming off better. At the end of the fourth he opened up a cut above Loriga’s right eye and from then on he made a mess of Loriga’s face with vicious punching. Time was 1:34 of seventh round.

Super bantamweight Lewis Pettit (14-1, 5 KOs) announced his arrival in the talent-packed super-bantamweight division by claiming the vacant WBA International title with a fifth round stoppage of big-hitting Brazilian Emerson Santos Carvalho (12-5-1, 10 KOs).
