Maxim Vlasov, Vyacheslav Glazkov Win in Krasnodar

By Alexey Sukachev

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

Circus, Krasnodar, Russia - Local welterweight David Avanesyan (11-1, 5 KOs) scored an impressive stoppage of usually durable Kenyan fighter James Onyango (8-4-1, 8 KOs) in the third round and grabbed  the vacant WBC Asian Boxing Council welterweight title. Avanesyan looked solid in the first and landed several heard right hands and added left hooks on occasion. His left hand became lethal in the second round, when he floored Onyango with a series of hard hooks to the liver. Onyango got up and was battered around the ring till the end of the stanza. In the third, the Russian welterweight titleholder moved in and landed once again another left hook to the body. Onyengo didn't look hurt but chose to remain on the canvas thus signalizing a knockout loss at 0:40 of the third.

In a battle of two heavyweights, Ukrainian Vyacheslav Glazkov (11-0, 8 KOs), 2008 Beijing Olympics super heavyweight bronze medalist, continued his education with a stoppage win over towering journeyman Evgeny Orlov (13-12-1, 8 KOs). Glazkov jabbed and moved around much slower Orlov, slowly punching him into submission. Orlov offered little resistance, throwing lazy jab and relying on his physical prowess. He got more and more fatigued with each fought round. Finally, he became too tired to come out for round six and retired on his stool to give Glazkov another victory inside the distance.

WBC #13 super middleweight Maxim Vlasov (23-1, 12 KOs) moved on to his April 27 showdown with the IBO 168lb titlist Thomas Oosthuizen but looked rather ordinary against rugged Cameroonian enforcer Bernard Donfack (14-9-3, 6 KOs), who was fighting for the first time in over two years. Donfack, 31, who is based in Germany, looked rusty in the beginning but started to land some hard punches on Vlasov in the midst of the fight. Vlasov was boxing his usual style, moving forward and trading punches with the much shorter opponent, which wasn't a good move by him. In round five, Vlasov was down after one of Donfack's attacks but a knockdown call wasn't issued. Vlasov also connected with a number of telling blows, which resulted in two knockdowns in his favor. The Cameroonian faded down the stretch but Vlasov was unable to finish him off despite somewhat clear domination in the second half of the bout.

At the end, all three judges saw the bout identically: 100-88 - for Vlasov. His showdown with highly regarded IBF #7 and WBC #9 Oosthuizen (18-0-1, 13 KOs) will be a battle of two super middleweight Goliaths, as Vlasov's height is 6'3'' and the South African is 6'4''. Both combatants have a single common opponent in red hot light heavyweight prospect Isaac Chilemba, who barely and controversially outpointed Vlasov in 2011 and earned a draw versus Oosthuizen in 2010.

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

Cruiserweight Dmitry Kudriashov (4-0, 4 KOs) scored the easiest stoppage of his career, knocking out extremely incapable Kenyan Obadiah Mwangi (4-6-1) after just 57 seconds in a horrible mismatch. Mwangi was totally out of shape, looked fat and was unwilling to fight the fitter, stronger and better Kudriashov. The African was soon down after a short left hook by Kudriashov. He got up but the Russian continued his assault and floored Mwangi down for the count with another left hook followed by the right uppercut. Mwangi wasn't hurt but, seeing his unwillingness to fight on, referee Alexander Kalinkin stopped the bout.
