Krasnodar - Undefeated Russian cruiserweight kayo artist Dmitry Kudriashov passed the first important test of his career, stopping durable Croatian Ivica Bacurin (17-6-1, 7 KOs) in seven rounds to retain his WBC CISBB 200lb title for the third time.

Bacurin was expected to give Kudriashov some trouble with his resilience and experience but it had never happened. After taking the first round for a quick investigation of the opponent, the Russian bomber started... well, to bomb in the second round. One of his major left hands (this time to the whiskers) had Bacuring down at the end of the two. Kudriashov had little trouble finding a target in the next two rounds as well.

Bacurin produces some offensive fireworks in the fifth but the Russian ended it in a better way. Not using his presumably injured right hand at full capacity, Kudrishov still managed to rock his opponent several times in the sixth. The Croatian was also deducted two points in rounds five and four for various violations by referee Alexander Kalinkin. In the seventh, the Russian slugger finally got to his opponent. Bacurin was down after a major short right hand but fought on until he was decked two more times for a subsequent refusal.

Time of stoppage was 2:21 of the seventh round. The Russian Hammer Kudriashov proved his ability at a slightly higher level but still needs to fight better continental opposition to give the taste of his real skills. He is 14-0, 14 KOs, now.


In a forgettable bout, multi-title (WIBA, WBC, WBF) super middleweight queen Nikki Aler (12-0, 7 KOs) got the better of another Ghanaian import Gifty Amanuah Ankrah (3-4-1, 2 KOs) after eight rounds of scheduled eight. The contest was hardly watchable with a low-quality boxing from either side. Adler was slightly better and more consistent than Ankrah, who retired in her corner after the eighth citing a left shoulder injury,


In a short but spectacular fight, unbeaten Russian light heavyweight Sergey Ekimov (11-0, 5 KOs) destroyed Kazakh import Mikhail "El Khattab" Krinitsin (11-5-2, 7 KOs) in just two rounds. Ekimov acquired a vacant WBC CIS and Slovenian Boxing Bureau 175lb title with this victory.

Ekimov started the fight cautiously against his active opponent, but soon found that he had little trouble connecting with his right hand over the left hand of Krinitsin. Early into the second, the Russian fighter dropped his Kazakh counterpart on a combination of punches at the ropes and then finished him off soon thereafter with a big right hand to the whiskers.


In another mismatch, super featherweight Natalia Smirnova (8-0, 5 KOs) easily stopped 41-year old Ghanaian Yarkor Chavez Annan (7-7-1, 3 KOs). Smirnova jumped right on Annan and punched here relentlessly until Annan was put between the ropes after another combination of Smirnova. She struggled to get up as the bout was stopped at 01:52 of the round. Annan has lost her seventh straight. Smirnova acquired vacant WBU, WIBA and UBO 130lb titles with this victory.


Aliklych Kanbolatov (8-2, 3 KOs) snatched a vacant UBO International middleweight title after his bout with 19-year old Ukrainian import Vladislav Yeremenko (1-1) was stopped in the fifth due to a very bad cut, suffered by Yeremenko over the left eye. Time of stoppage was 0:30 of the round. Scores at the time of stoppage were 49-46, 49-46 and 49-47 - for Kanbolatov. The fight was ugly before that and featured numerous clinches, wild misses and low-quality pugilism before that.


Former amateur standout Apti "Tiger" Ustarkhanov moved up to 5-1-2, 1 KO, with a close unanimous decision over 19-year old Ukrainian Dilmurov Satybaldiev (4-1, 2 KOs). Scores were: 59-55, 58-56 and 58-57 - for the Chechen fighter.


It took Arbi Madaev (4-1-1, 1 KOs) less than two minutes to get his first stoppage win after he decked totally incapable Ukrainian import Valentyn Trostyanchuk (0-9) thrice with barely meaningful punches. The Ukrainian is still to hear the final bell - he was stopped in each of his losses.
