On April 27 in Pskov, Russia, local super bantamweight Andrey Bogdanov (17-1-1, 6 KOs) made a successful leap up in weight and acquired a vacant WBO Oriental featherweight title with a quality win over Filipino import Carlo Magali (16-7-2, 8 KOs). Magali gave Bogdanov a hard fight, but the Russian and BBU 122lb titleholder used his superior technique to outpoint Magali unanimously in a close battle. There were no knockdowns.
Artur Akavov captured a vacant WBC CISBB light middleweight title by scoring a ten-round unanimous decision over Uzbek Bekzod Yunusov (6-1, 3 KOs). Akavov moves up to 8-1 but he is yet to score a stoppage. In a battle of two unbeatens, cruiserweight Andrey Knyazev (7-0, 3 KOs) scored a unanimous decision over eight against hard-hitting Uzbek Elyor Gulomov (8-1, 7 KOs), while welterweight Sherali Mamadaliev (16-2, 9 KOs) knocked out Latvian journeyman Stanislavs Leonovs (6-9, 6 KOs) in two. Leonovs is yet to hear the final bell in his career lose or win he gets the job done inside the distance.
The entire show was promoted by local boxing organizer Igor Sudelainen.
