Baysangurov Decisions Konecny in Tough Title Defense

By Alexey Sukachev

Sport Palace, Kiev, Ukraine - WBO/IBO junior middleweight champion Zaurbek Baysangurov (28-1, 20KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over Lukas Konecny (48-4, 23KOs) in a very tough contest. The scores were 117-111 (Matteo Montella), 118-110 (Lahcen Oumghar) and 119-109 (Mickey Vann). There were no knockdowns and Konecny was badly cut over the left eye in the twelfth. BoxingScene had it 115-113 for the champion.

FULL REPORT COMING............

----------

Former WBO European light middleweight champion Dmitry Nikulin (25-1, 8 KOs) didn't exactly impress against tough and determined Uzbek journeyman Fayzullo Akhmedov (10-11-1, 5 KOs) but cruised to an easy win regardless. Nikulin, a smooth stylist, wisely circled around his opponent and pinned him with fast singles from both hands. The Uzbek, who has never been stopped, was aggressive but it didn't pay off for him. Scores were: 78-74, 79-74 and 79-73 - for the Ukrainian.

----------

Local prospect Dmytro Semernin (9-0-1, 3 KOs) suffered the first blemish in his career, being held to a draw by little-known Georgian import Ambrosi Sutidze (6-2-4, 3 KOs). Scores were: 76-76, 78-74 (Semernin), 76-78 (Sutidze). The Georgian was reportedly deducted three points during the bout.

Sergey Nekrasov (6-1-1, 6 KOs) lost his almost perfect record by losing an unanimous decision to unheralded countryman Oleksiy Koziy (4-2, 2 KOs). No scores were announced.

Upset master Olexander Cherviak (10-3-1, 3 KOs) struggled mightily against tough Uzbek operator Ravshanbek Jabbarov (10-4-1, 5 KOs) but was lucky to earn a SD over eight. Scores weren't revealed in this fight.

----------

German light heavyweight Dominic Boesel (8-0, 2 KOs) is certainly not a guy you will wish to watch after. And he proved it again by scoring a very dull, workmanlike (almost robotic) unanimous decision over badly overmatched Belarussian Vladimir Tazik (4-19-1) over six. Scores were 60-54 (twice) and astonishing 60-50 in a stinker, where no knockdowns have been scored. The last score is possibly an error of the announcer.

----------

In the TV-opener, local cruiserweight prospect Vitaliy Nevesioliy (13-1, 7 KOs) edged much heavier Belarussian Yuri Bihovtsev (6-2-1, 5 KOs), a real heavyweight, in an eight-rounder. The Ukrainian felt his opponent's punches vey well but was a bit sharper to snatch a controversial SD. Scores were: 73-79 - for Bihovtsev, and 77-76 (twice) - for Nevesioliy.

Zaur looked good last night i felt Koceny would stop him because Baysangurov has had chin issues in the past but last night he took alot off solid shots although if he used abit off head movement he would make…
