Two undefeated Russian young guns continued to improve their game by acquiring vacant youth titles under the WBC banner minutes ago at Yunost Arena in Chelyabinsk, Russia. The entire show was orchestrated by the Ural Boxing Promotions, guided by Evgueny Vainstein and Alexey Vasiliev.

In the main event, 20-year old local welterweight Konstantin Ponomarev (21-0, 10 KOs) put on some boxing clinique against rugged but limited Ghanaian aggressor Isaac Aryee (15-6, 14 KOs). Ponomarev used his premium footwork and body movement to avoid hard punches by the African and landed his jab at will. Power wasn't enought but Ponomarev cruised to a unanimous decision over ten rounds with lopsided scores: 100-90, 100-91 and 100-92. The Miass native is now 3-0 this year and remaining very busy.

Murat Gassiev, 19, made much shorter work of his opponent - a sturdy Georgian cruiserweight Levan Jomardashvili (31-11, 21 KOs) - dropping him four time en route to the second-round stoppage for a vacant WBC Youth 200lb title. The Georgian import was dropped twice in the first and twice in the second, all of the knockdowns being the result of Gassiev's damaging liver punches. Official time of stoppage was 1:10. Gassiev is now 12-0, with 8 KOs, being 4-0, 4 KOs, in 2013.
