Ismayl Sillakh Beats Yordanis Despaigne, Stays Unbeaten

By Mark Vester

At the Jostens Center in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, Ismayl Sillakh (15-0, 12KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over Cuban amateur star Yordanis Despaigne (8-1, 4KOs) in a battle of undefeated light heavyweight prospects. The scores were 98-91, 98-91 and 99-90.

After nearly two close rounds, the final twenty seconds of the second round saw Sillakh rally with several combinations, and finished it off with hard right hand to send Despaigne down in the final ten seconds. In the third, Sillakh went right after Despaigne and opened up cuts around both of his eyes. Despaigne came back well in the fourth and fifth rounds.  After those two, Sillakh took the fight back over by beating Despaigne from the outside and really opening up the two cuts around his eyes.

I liked McGirt as a fighter. I find it hard to like him as a trainer. Perhaps that might change if one of his fighters ever win a fight.
