Lviv show set for June 27!

By Alexey Sukachev

K2 East promotions will present its next tournament, announced as “World Boxing” on June 27 at “Ukraine” Palace of Sports in Lviv, western Ukraine. The headliner is a heated clash between two ex-Soviet fighters for the vacant EBA (WBA European branch) welterweight title. Local hero Victor Plotnikov (21-1, 10 KOs), 31, fought only twice out of native Lviv during his pro career, yet taking formidable Belgian contender Jackson Osei Bonsu in deep waters en route to a close decision loss a year ago in one of these outings. Plotnikov collides with unbeaten Uzbek Sherzodbek Alimjanov (15-0, 10 KOs), who spent almost his entire career at home as well, capturing his share of minor titles during the process. Plotnikov-Alimjanov fight is scheduled for twelve rounds, and fireworks are expected.

In what seems to be his toughest fight in years, K2 East promoted Croatian Mario Preskar (16-0-2, 10 KOs) takes on once beaten Ukrainian heavyweight Maxim Pedyura (13-1, 11 KOs) over ten. Pedyura’s only loss was this February to the WBA #14 heavyweight Alexander Ustinov. Junior middleweight Kostya Rovensky (11-0, 2 KOs) is set for ten against dangerous upset specialist Tursunbay Abdulakimov (11-2, 3 KOs). In a heated super bantamweight collision of two journeymen, Gennady Delisandru (18-14-1, 6 KOs) will oppose Mamed Yadgarov (11-5, 5 KOs).

Also set to take their part in the show are a number of K2 East undefeated prospects, including heavyweight Andrey Rudenko (13-0, 6 KOs), lightweight Valentin Golovko (8-0, 5 KOs), junior welterweight Artiom Ayvazidi (6-0, 1 KO) and super middleweight Vasily Klyusa (11-0, 7 KOs). The show starts at 6 PM LT and will be broadcasted by Megasport TV channel.
