Boxing Result

Baysangurov shuts out Albert

By Dmitry Mikhalchuk and Alexey Sukachev

Top Russian junior middleweight Zaurbek Baysangurov (WBA #10 and WBC #14) scored one of the biggest wins in his pro career moments ago at Dynamo Palace of Sports in Chechen capital of Grozny, Russia. The Chechen native (now 22-1, 16 KOs) used his usual enforcer-style to outslug and overpower tough but limited Nigerian Eromosele Albert (22-3-1, 10 KOs) over twelve one-sided rounds. Baysangurov, 24, was just too strong and too rugged for his eleven-year older opponent, who found no keys to his foe’s constant pressure. Albert fought on even terms with Zaurbek for the first three rounds but then the Chechen fighter, promoted by K2 East promotions, began to break him down both physically and mentally. The fight turned out to be foul-filled in the latter rounds but referee Mikael Hook deducted no points from the fighters. All three judges’ scorecards were unanimous in favour of the local fighter: 119-109 (twice) and 120-108. Fightnews saw it a bit closer 118-110. With the win Baysangurov, who was embraced by both Wladimir Klitschko and Chechen president Ramzan Kadyrov before and after the fight, retained his WBA Intercontinental belt for the first time.

WBA #13-ranked heavyweight Alexander Ustinov (17-0, 14 KOs) continued his winning streak with a one-sided beatdown of Kazakh national champion Talgat Dosanov (13-12-1, 6 KOs). Dosanov was down three times in the second stanza, and the bout was stopped in round four after more punishment, dealt by the rapidly rising Russian banger. (more…)

Yordan wins by TKO

By Jeff Pamungkas

Facing difficulties in the first five rounds due to his strategy to answer his opponent’s challenge to fight in the short distance, Daud Yordan could finally performed his best skills and landed his best shots to defeat his opponent Ricky Sismundo (14-4, 5 KOs) by TKO in round ten to retain WBO Oriental featherweight title, Saturday night (8/15) at Twin Plaza Hotels, Jakarta, Indonesia. Sismundo who last month defeated Yordan’s brother, Yohannes Yordan, with a third round TKO, landed some dangerous hooks to the face in rounds four and five, staggering Yordan, currently featherweight WBO #2 and WBA #5. Yordan started coming out strong in round seven and dangerously cornered the Filipino contender, but saved by the bell. Round nine, Sismundo was hurt, and in the last two minutes of the round he was only running to avoid Yordan’s strong body punches. Sismundo then refused to stand out of his stool after the break after round nine, so the referee awarded the TKO victory in round ten to Daud “Cino” Yordan, now 25-0, 19 KOs. (more…)

Vanda defeats Muller!

By Jesse Kelley

Matt “The Predator” Vanda (41-9, 22 KOs) had a successful test run in the super middleweight division on Friday night as he defeated game Teddy Muller (19-16-2, 9 KOs) by an 8 round decision at the Myth Nightclub in Maplewood, MN. Vanda out slugged Muller despite being outsized by keeping a high guard and moving in and out of reach with hard combinations to the head and particularly the body. Muller came close to matching Vanda’s punch output but had trouble getting through the colorful East Saint Paul fighters guard. Vanda looked to be in the best condition of his career as he constantly pressured Muller, smiling throughout the bout. Muller, who came out of retirement for the fight, did his best to keep pace but hit a tattooed wall by round seven as Vanda took complete control of the fight. Vanda seemed seconds away from a knockout victory in the closing moments of the fight but Muller refused to quit as both men finished the fight throwing bombs. Vanda settled for a unanimous decison win by scores of 79-74, and 80-72 twice. Vanda fought at the highest weight of his career (168) to prepare for his showdown with super middleweight Phil “The Drill” Williams (11-1) on September 26th in Minneapolis. (more…)

Campillo decisions Shumenov!

By Daniyar Karimzhan (ringside), Leonid Yuryev and Alexey Sukachev

WBA light heavyweight champion Gabriel Campillo of Spain (19-2, 6 KOs) retained his title for the first time with a hard-fought, thrilling twelve-round unanimous decision over sensational Kazakh prospect Beibut Shumenov (8-1, 6 KOs). Shumenov, WBO #6, WBA #9 and WBC #15 175lber in the world, fighting for the major belt in his ninth fight as a pro, started the bout aggressively, throwing punches in bunches but mostly to the block of his opponent. Campillo was fighting smoothly, trying to counter the challenger from the distance and displaying savvy boxing skills in controlling the tempo. Kazakh Shumenov was visibly tired at the halfmark of the fight but dug deep to catch the second wind as the collision went on. In round nine already fatigued but yet powerful Shumenov floored the champion with a hard left to the chin. Campillo, seemingly on the brink of defeat, was able to regroup and fought back with the zeal. Championship rounds were back-and-fourth but the Spaniard solidified his position with a wicked left hook to the body that put Shumenov down early in the twelfth. At the end of the day, all three judges saw the battle in a favor of the defending titlist: 114-112, 115-111 and 114-113 – for Campillo. Fightnews saw it 113-113 a draw. All in all, an exciting two-way action and a strong effort by 25-year old Shumenov.

Up-and-coming Uzbek light heavyweight prospect Gayrat “Gerry” Akhmedov is now 12-0-1, with 8 KOs, following the second-round destruction of Kenyan import Douglas Otieno (19-3, 9 KOs).

Former WBO light welterweight champion DeMarcus Corley scored his second consecutive stoppage victory with the eighth-round TKO over Kenyan James Kimori (11-2, 7 KOs).

Kimori was stopped for the first time in his career in his first ever bout outside of Africa.

25-year old light middleweight Ravshan Hudaynazarov (9-0, 7 KOs) of Andijan, Uzbekistan, made a brilliant display of his talent with the thunderous first-round annihilation of Kenyan veteran Joseph Miyumo (30-8-5, 17 KOs).

Former Kazakh amateur standout Abzal Adambaev (1-0, 1 KO) debuted with the stoppage win over fellow Uzbek rookie Muratjan Kurbanov (0-1). The fight was halted after the third round, when Kurbanov retired on his stool.
