By Alexey Sukachev

Hard-hitting Belarussian prospect Sergey Rabchenko, who is being co-promoted by Ricky Hatton and Valery Kaplya continued his recent British adventures with another frightening display of his skills. Competing on the undercard of Gary Buckland versus Paul Truscott showdown, WBA #11 Rabchenko, 26, took just 21 seconds to destroy rather capable German opponent Ronny Gabel (10-5, 8 KOs) with a single left hook to the body.

Rabchenko had been set to fight Ryan Rhodes for a vacant European title but the British fighter was forced to withdraw with an injury. Given a Saturday’s performance of the Belarussian, Rhodes will have a very hard time dealing with the upcoming prospect if they do collide in future.

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

Polish lightweight Krzysztof Cieslak (18-3, 5 KOs) dreamt of a sweet revenge he would take against his bitter rival Felix Lora (14-9-5, 8 KOs) of Dominican Republic. In May 2010 Lora, always an underdog, upset previously undefeated Polish prospect with a record of 15-0 and got a majority decision, one of a number of unexpected achievements he had gotten throughout his career.

However, this past Saturday Cieslak failed to fulfill his dream and lost – this time a lopsided decision – in one-sided fashion to a better fighter. Lora controlled the fight all the way, using his underrated technique combined with the physical prowess. Scores were 99-92, 100-91 and 99-91 – for the Dominican, which speaks itself of how one-sided the fight really was. Lora acquired a vacant WBC Baltic lightweight title.

In co-main event, Lukasz Wawrzyczek (12-1-2, 2 KOs) was held to a draw by German enforcer Christian Pawlak (17-4-1, 10 KOs) thus the Polish International super middleweight title remained vacant.

Also, heavyweight Krzysztof Zimnoch improved to 10-0-1, with 8 KOs, in a thriller with Vjekoslav Bajic (5-6, 2 KOs). Both fighters were down in the first, and in the second Zimnoch just knocked his opponent out.

There six more fight on the card, promoted by Tomasz Babilonski, and one of them featured hot lightweight prospect Karolina Owczarz (4-0, 1 KO) who defeated Irene Gambrah in a close fight.

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

Well-known Belgian light middleweight Jackson Osei Bonsu (40-5, 28 KOs) continued his way back into continental contention with his sixth win in a row (over course of the last eleven months since the last defeat). On Saturday, Bonsu outpointed Estonian journeyman Sergey Melis (18-9, 7 KOs) in a tough, hard fight. IBF #15 Bonsu floored Melis in the closing sixth round but otherwise the fight was rather even. Scores were: 59-55 and 58-55 (twice) – for Bonsu. Next for the Belgian slugger is a rendezvous with Georgian fighter David Makaradze (18-8, 9 KOs) on April 27.

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

After a year and a half of a forced hiatus, German heavyweight Steffen Kretschmann (16-2, 15 KOs) came back into action on Saturday at KSC Box-Halle in Halle-an-der-Salle, Germany. Kretshcmann, who was regarded as one of the best German heavyweight hopefuls before being twice stopped by rugged Russian veteran Denis Bakhtov in 2009/2010, stopped Belarussian no-hope Andrey Mazanik (4-4, 3 KOs) in two rounds.

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

Latvian cruiserweight kayo artist Mairis Briedis (9-1, 7 KOs) shook off his disappointing loss to Ivica Bacurin in a semifinal of the ending 2012 Bigger’s Better tournament in Varazdin with another first-round TKO – this time over debutant Ruslan Siniavskij on Saturday night at Arena Riga, Latvia.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Two undefeated Montenegrin fighters continued their winning streaks on April 24, getting victories in a nice-packed little tournament, organized by Luca Popovic and Veselin Bulatovic in Niksic, Montenegro.

In the main event, lightweight Dejan Zlaticanin improved to 15-0, 11 KOs, with the first-round blowout of Romanian Vasile Herteg (19-8, 7 KOs). The fight was stopped at 2:02 of the stanza.

On the same card, locally regarded super middleweight veteran Nicola Sjekloca (24-0, 7 KOs) outpointed Croatian Nicola Matic (5-16, 3 KOs) over six. The sole score was 60-54. Sjekloca, 33, is ranked #3 by the WBC, #8 by the WBO and #14 by the WBA.

Croatian master Stjepan Bozic (25-6, 16 KOs), a former challenger for the WBA super middleweight title, also won by a kayo, stopping Mise Nikolic (13-12, 11 KOs) in two.

Other results:

Milorad Zizic (5-0, 2 KOs) UD 6 Youssuf Doumbia (5-11-3, 1 KO). Scores: 59-55 (twice) and 58-56
Dragan Roganovic (2-0-1, 1 KO) KO 2 Alexandar Jankovic (0-2)
