Denis Lebedev Drills Silgado Out Cold in Four Rounds

By Alexey Sukachev

In arctic-cold Moscow (with temperatures well below 0F), WBA cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev definitely lit up the flames with his chilling one-punch knockout of previously undefeated voluntary challenger Santander Silgado (23-1, 18 KOs).

WBC #6 and WBA #8 but vastly untested Silgado, 27, came in to win, not just to take part in Lebedev's first defense of a newly awarded belt as an opponent. After a timid first, he has brought in some devils in the second and in the third stanzas to get some respect from the Russian.

Into the fourth, Lebedev, 33, caught his foe with a huge left hand and wobbled Silgado very bad. Despite being clearly hurt the Colombian made a letally wrong decision to brawl with Lebedev. He soon found himself at the ropes, where the Russian master crushed him in the face-first fashion with a killer-like left uppercut to the jaw. Referee Mikael Hook started the count but soon ended it as Silgado was totally motionless.

Denis Lebedev improves to 25-1, with 19 KOs. "Madison Square Garden is next!", proclaimed Vladimir Hryunov. "We're targeting Eddie Chambers next".

----------

Highly regarded Russian cruiserweight Grigoriy Drozd (36-1, 25 KOs) pounded out a twelve-round unanimous decision over comebacking Frenchman Jean Mark Monrose (25-6, 15 KOs) to capture the vacant WBA international 200lb title.

WBC #5, WBA #9 and IBF #14 Drozd dropped his opponent with hard body shots in rounds three and nine (twice) but failed to finish him inside the distance despite creating a bad cut over Monrose's left eye with right hand bombs.

Final scorecards were: 120-106 and 119-107 (twice) - for the Russian, who moves a notch closer to a world title shot.

----------

WBA #7 lightweight Eduard Troyanovskiy (13-0, 10 KOs) made a thunderous defense of his title with a dominant second- round stoppage of experienced Columbian veteran Walter Estrada (42-16-1, 27 KOs).

After the slow first stanza, Troyanovskiy came back with a bang in the second. Estrada was first down after a huge left counter hook, then following a right hand, and with a multi-punch combo soon thereafter. As a three-knockdown rule was in effect, the fight was stopped at that point.

----------

Heavyweight Vladimir Goncharov improved to 2-0, 1 KO, after the sixth-round stoppage of Bedarin Toma (6-2, 3 KOs). Toma was pummeled hard during the closing rounds and did everything to survive, including constant holding, which he was deducted a point for in the sixth. Goncharov landed a series of punches right after that, forcing a stoppage of unwilling Toma at 2:02 of the same stanza.

----------

Middleweight banger Oleg Liseev (6-1, 4 KOs) engaged into a crowd-pleasing brawl with Colombian opponent Jhonathan Ricar (9-5, 7 KOs) and knocked him out with three seconds remaining in the sixth round in bizarre fashion. Ricar was down seconds before the end but was erroneously allowed to continue fightin despite being on wobbly legs.

Silgado reminded me of Pacquiao lying on the canvas like that.
