Ukraine is rapidly heating up for two local events, promoted by K2 Ukraine in Kharkiv and by Elite Boxing in the capital city of Kiev. The weigh-in took place today in Kiev, while participants of the Kharkiv show were measured yesterday.

Kharkiv

WBA #3, WBO #5 and IBF #12 ranked Alexander Ustinov (26-0, 20 KOs) is matched relatively tough with rugged American journeyman Jason Gavern (21-9-4, 10 KOs) for the vacant IBO I/C heavyweight title. Ustinov, 35, tipped the scales at 310 lbs, while Gavern, also 35, was much lighter at 230.5 pounds.

In a co-main event, cruiserweights Vitaly Nevesioliy (12-0, 7 KOs) and Pavel Zhuravliov (8-1, 5 KOs) collide in an all-Ukrainian rendezvous over eight rounds. Nevesioliy weighed-in at 200, and Zhuravliov was a bit heavier at 202.

Other important match-ups:

WBO #11 Valery Brazhnik (27-0-1, 16 KOs) 148 versus Hurshid Madaminov (6-8, 2 KOs) 149
Valentin Golovko (15-0, 8 KOs) 137 versus Dmytro Bogachuk (6-10-1, 3 KOs) 135.5
Dmytro Semernin (8-0, 3 KOs) 148 versus Adham Nazarov (4-5, 2 KOs) 148

Kiev

Undefeated light welterweight talent Victor Postol (17-0, 9 KOs) faces his first Mexican opponent in Jose “Piston” Lopez (15-1-1, 9 KOs) in a non-title ten-rounder. Postol was fit and ready at 141.3 while Lopez came in at 144.3, and now has to lose about a pound not to be penalized for coming overweight.

In another important ten-rounder, Dmytro Kucher (15-0, 11 KOs) will look to beat Argentinean veteran Walter David Cabral (14-6, 8 KOs), 41, to his list of victims in another ten-rounder. Kucher had to face Daniel Sanabria, but the latter forced to withdraw due to visa problems. Kucher weighed-in at 201, while Cabral was trim at 192.

Five more fights will constitute the undercard of this show.
