By Alexey Sukachev

Russian super bantamweight Alexander Bakhtin (31-0, 12 KOs) continued to pile up wins this Sunday as he stopped overmatched Colombian Yogli Herrera (22-16, 15 KOs) in four one-sided rounds at Balashikha Arena in Balashikha, a satellite city of Moscow, Russia. Herrera got up to a fresh start but was gradually nullified by the Russian and then beaten into submission.

The IBO 122lb champion, who is also ranked #3 by the WBA, #4 by the WBC and #5 by the IBF, was first scheduled to face the Argentinean veteran Sergio Carlos Santillan, who was then replaced by the Mexican Carlos Rodriguez, and finally the Colombian veteran came in as a late dance partner for the still undefeated Bakhtin.

It is still unclear if the IBO belt was at stake in this particular contest but the 31-year old Russian stylist is still the International Boxing Organization super bantamweight champion. Herrera, on the other hand, has lost his thirteenth straight.

Shows you the value of the IBO belt: he may have been defending against a guy with 12 consecutive losses. Bakhtin deserves a shot at a real title and legit competition, not more crap fights like this

What happened to Bakhtin versus Agebko? I didn't even know he was fighting today.
