Yengoyan, Fegatelli, Persoon and Merhy score wins last Friday in Ostend, Belgium

The beast of the East Sasha Yengoyan needed only 2 rounds to stop Bulgarian champion Stiliyan Kostov. After a quite even first round in which both boxers showed a lot of respect for eachother local Yengoyan increased his workrate and mid the 2nd round dropped the visitor with a left-right combination. Kostov beat the count but was seemingly disturbed. Yengoyan tried to finish it in the follow up attack but instead pushed his opponent in the neck with his right while throwing a left to the body. The ref did not pick up the count. Yengoyan, who showed a lot of technical improvement and patience, went back to work. Moments later Kostov was caught again with a left, followed by a right to the chin and he went down again. When Yengoyan saw that his opponent was not fully recoved he unleashed a vicious left to the body and Kostov was down for the 3rd time in the same round and it was under Belgian rules automatically waved off at that point.
Former EBU champion and current WBC #12 Ermano Fegatelli was surprisingly dropped in the 2nd round by a left on he top of the head from Michael Escobar and give away the rest of the round to easily win all the rest of the fight. It was scored 3 times 78-73.
Belgian female star Delfine Persoon also needed only 2 rounds to stop her overmatched opponent from Bulgaria Galina Gumliiska. The visitor was down from a body punch in round 1 and cut from an accidental clash of heads in round 2. The corner did not want to work on the cut and Gumliiska preferred not to come out for the 3rd round.
Without any doubt 20 year old cruiserweight Ryad Merhy is a great prospect and has a bright future ahead of him. He needed only 2 rounds to knock out Bozinovic last June for his pro debut and this time he knocked out Nikolay Ermenkov inside 1 round. Merhy has power in both hands and uses a variety of punshes. He will be back in action on Oct 5 in Andenne, Belgium.
