Baysangurov, Konecny Make Weight For a Kiev War

By Alexey Sukachev and Dmitry Mikhalchuk

The fight scene is all but set for a huge night of boxing, which takes place at the Kiev Palace of sports tomorrow. The event's biggest attraction is a long-awaited showdown between two reigning WBO champions in an all-European unification within the limits of the light middleweight class. A couple of hours ago both combatants successfully tipped the scales slightly under 154 pounds.

Reigning champion Zaurbek Baysangurov (27-1, 20 KOs), a proud Chechen native representing K2 Promotions, who is making the second defense of his maroon belt weighed-in at 152.3 pounds, while his opponent and WBO interim titleholder Lukas Konecny (48-3, 23 KOs) was a bit heavier at 153.4. Both boxers made the limit on their first attempts.

Ten more fights under K2 and SES will constitute a huge undercard. Other participants of the event have also taken part in the weigh-in, and here are the most interesting pairs:

Sergey Fedchenko (30-2, 13 KOs) 140 vs Nugzar Margvelashvili (25-18, 11 KOs) 141
Andrew Rudenko (22-0, 14 KOs) 248.5 vs Ivica Perkovic (17-16, 13 KOs) 271.5
Dmytro Nikulin (24-1, 8 KOs) 155.3 vs Fayzullo Akhmedov (10-10-1, 5 KOs) 156
