By Alexey Sukachev

Sergey Gulyakevich, an excellent Belarus technician and a former WBC super featherweight title challenger (he lost a close majority decision to Humberto Gutierrez in Mexico in 2009), came back to action and posted two easy wins over the course of three weeks.

First, Gulyakevich, 30, now weighing inside the light welterweight limit, stopped fellow compatriot Anton Rusak (5-3, 5 KOs) in a single round in Minsk on March 21. And the last week, he moved to Riga, Latvia, and easily outpointed local trialhorse Jevgenijs Fedorovs (7-31-4, 2 KOs) over four. The sole score was 40-36.

Gulyakevich was out of action for merely a year and a half since October 2010 due to managerial and promotional issues.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As BoxingScene has already reported, three undefeated fighters from Russia and Uzbekistan, WBC #7 welterweight Anton Novikov (24-0, 10 KOs), Aslanbek Kozaev (20-0, 6 KOs) and Elyor Gulomov (6-0, 5 KOs), got their next victories on Sunday night in Noginsk, Russia, as a part of the Ural Boxing promoted tournament.

There were three more fights during the event. In another twelve-rounder Serbian import Petar Zivkovic (11-0, 5 KOs) barely outpointed another Uzbek Ismatullo Gulomov (6-6-2, 5 KOs) with a split decision to take a vacant WBC Commonwealth of Independent States and Slovenian Boxing Bureau (or shortly WBC CISBB) light welterweight belt. Uzbek judge Doniyor Ergashev expectedly had it 116-111 for Gulomov, while Montenegrin Predrag Aleksic was also predictable having it 116-112 – for Zivkovic. The decisive scorecard belonged to Leonid Sorokin, who had it 118-113 – for the Serbian. All in all, Zivkovic was indeed slightly better than his counterpart.

Young (19 years of age) welterweight Konstantin Ponomarev improved to 14-0, 7 KOs, after the third-round stoppage of Belarussian Vadim Astapiuk (10-21-1, 2 KOs), while Murat Gassiev (4-0, 2 KOs) decisioned Igor Pilipenko (3-12-1) unanimously over six.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In a bid for a vacant WBC Baltic Sliver welterweight title (quite a questionable naming anyway), Germany-based Turk Yavuz Ertuerk stopped local Hungarian Denis Harnasi (11-1, 3 KOs) in two rounds. Harnasi retired in his corner after the second round, reportedly claiming an injury. The fight took place at Ruhrstadt Arena in Herne, Germany, this past Sunday under Christian Hiller’s promotion. The results came as no surprise: All of Harnasi’s wins came in a short span of time between August 31 and December 3, an overall record of his opponents being miserable 4-124.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Switzerland-based Macedonian (actually of Albanian heritage) Agron Dzilla (15-1, 11 KOs) became the new WBC Youth cruiserweight titleholder on April 7, knocking out previously undefeated Kenyan Peter Omondi (3-1-3, 1 KO) in the ninth round. Omondi was deducted a point in round seven and trailed miserably on all of the judges’ scorecards with identical 71-80 tallies. Olivier Deutschler promoted alongside Stjepan Herzeg.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Another WBC promotion this past weekend took place on Saturday in Zajecar, Serbia, under the Balkan Boxing Promotions, led by Darko Popivoda.

In the main event, local light middleweight Milan Piperski (7-0, 3 KOs) acquired the vacant WBC CISBB 154lb title, by breaking down Bulgarian Dragomir Totev (4-5) in the fifth round. On the very same card, cruiserweight Ivan Ribac, 35, also from Serbia, improved to 9-0, 7 KOs, after an easy win over another Bulgarian in four rounds. The sole score was 40-35.
