Results: Chudinov, Troyanovskiy, Miranda, Klimov Win

By Alexey Sukachev

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

Former amateur standout Dmitry Chudinov (8-0-1, 5 KOs) got the most devastative single victory of the night by completely demolishing his Colombian opponent Milton Nunez (25-7-1, 23 KOs) in the first round of scheduled twelve to capture a vacant PABA interim middleweight title.

Chudinov was measured and positively cautious in the first half of the round. But as soon as his right hand found the target, Nunez felt the power of the Russian very well. He was wobbled badly after the first right bomb and tried to survive in clinches. it helped him only for 30-40 seconds, before Chudinov landed a huge left-right combo, and Nunez felt on the canvas after a shaky dance in the center of the ring. He tried to get up but was unable to do it correctly, forcing referee Alexander Kalinkin to pu a halt to the contest at 2:57 of the round.

Thus Chudinov can no be found in the same sentences with kayo artists Gennady Golovkin, Jorge Melendez and Hugo Kasperski as well as with Nunez's compatriot Nilson Julio Tapia - all of the stopped Milton within a round. Even though he was able to go the distance with former Chudinov's rival (at unpaid ranks) Matt Korobov and fought to a spirited majority decision loss with Deandre Latimore, the Columbian, who now has five first-round defeats, looks to be very damaged and shot enough to call it a day for good.

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

Never in a dull fight! WBA #4 lightweight Eduard Troyanovskiy (14-0, 11 KOs) turned his PABA title defense into a crowd-pleasing thriller and got an impressive second-round TKO over Colombian Orlen Padilla (19-5-1, 17 KOs) thus avenging the score between Russia and Colombia.

Padilla was coming out of a KO loss to Israel Perez at the end of 2012. He wasn't prepared for a fighter like Troyanovskiy but being a late sub for the Malawian Osgood Kayuni helped him to put Eduard in danger during the first round. Padilla landed several swinging hooks at the end of the stanza, which wobbled the Russian, but failed to capitalize on his success. The brawl continued in the second, and this time Padilla wasn't that successful. He was first rocked and then dropped heavily by one of the Russian's right bombs. The Colombian got up but was soon down again. Once again did he rise, but referee Alexander Kalinkin asked him a couple of questions, which the dazed fighter obviously failed to answer correctly, and the waved the contest off. TKO 2 - for Troyanovskiy, who had some defensive blemished to be eliminated before moving closer to a world title fight.

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

"Mr. Knockout" from Colombia, also known as Dionisio Miranda (22-8-2, 19 KOs), got back to the winning column with a well earned technical knockout of the "Russian Gatti" Oleg Liseev (6-2, 4 KOs) in a scheduled middleweight eight-rounder.

Miranda dropped his last two by knockout and was 3-6 since his debut in America. However, he had big wins over fellow contenders Sebastian Demers and Lajuan Simon as well as two crushing defeats in the IBF eliminators (to Giovanni Lorenzo and Roman Karmazin). Liseev was less experienced and also very raw to fight on even terms with the Colombian. He tried though and did some damage in the first two rounds. However, every time he had success he stopped and allowed Miranda to regain his composure and to fire off in response. One of these counter right hands landed perfectly to Liseev's left eyebrow in the midst of the fourth, which forced a bad cut. Referee Evgeny Gorstkov halted the action and took Liseev to the rignside physician. The bout was stopped right after that, making Miranda the winner.

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

All out action between Russian lightweight champion Andrey Klimov, and hard-hitting Argentinean import Matthias Ezequiel Gomez, was cut short and ended in shameful turmoil, when a horrible cut, suffered by the Russian, led to unacceptable discussions in the center of the ring between both teams, the referee, the promoter, the IBF supervisor and several unidentified men, which lasted for more than 20 minutes with Gomez standing firm in his desire to continue fighting. At the end, it didn't help him much as the Argentinean (now 29-2, 28 KOs) dropped his second straight decision - this time a technical one - to Klimov, who is still undefeated at 15-0, with 8 KOs.

Klimov, 30, has fought his last four overseas, stopping 18-1 Ty Barnett and also getting one of the minor WBC titles. Gomez compiled an impressive record by beating nonames in South America but was decisioned by 17-6 Thompson Mokwana in his first bout ouside of the native continent just three weeks ago. Nicknamed "Tsunami" Gomez, 24, started very aggressively, going right after Klimov. That was what Klimov wanted as he countered Gomez, specifically with his right hand. Klimov was moving intelligently, circling around the very raw Argentinean and inflicting damage. On the other hand, Gomez was much better in the second. He found his distance, sat on his punches and was able to gain his biggest success of the night by cutting Klimov badly over his left eye. The cut wasn't ruled either as an accidental headbutt or as a legal punch by referee Yuri Koptsev.

Two-way action continued in rounds three and four. Sensing he is on the brink of being stopped, Klimov engaged into several heated exchanges with Gomez. The latter was wild but also effective during continuous furious combinations. Klimov, on the other hand, was also dangerous - especially with single right hands to the head of Gomez. The fight was almost stopped after the fourth round, but the ringside physician and the referee allowed Klimov to continue fighting. The fight was almost even after that but Klimov, when he was being bothered by the cut, was the more subtle and effective of the two.

In the seventh round, several hard shots had Klimov's cut once again bleeding, and the referee chose to stop the fight between the seventh and the eighth round. There were no signs of the accidental headbutt but after some verbal exchanges the supervisor chose to go to the scorecards, which favoured Klimov. Sadly, no scorecards were announced. BoxingScene had it 68-65 at the time of stoppage - for the Russian, who acquired a vacant IBF I/C title.

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

The aggressor isn't always the one to deal more damage in the ring. An old axiom has been proven once again in a pitch four-rounder between debuting light heavyweight Alexey Stakanchikov and defensive-oriented counterpuncher Alexander Kubich. Stakanchikov pressured his foe all the way but was too straightforward to create any dangers. Oppositely, Kubich used his left uppercut to time Stakanchikov on his way in and land flush on his opened chin. Both fighters delivered sustained action and entertained the local crowd. Kubich was a better man and was rightfully announced a winner by a unanimous decision. Scores weren't announced, and BoxingScene had it 40-36 - for Kubich.

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

A heated battle between two ethnic Armenians ended in favour of the more experienced welterweight Musheg Sukiasyan (2-1), who edged pro debutant Sevak Bagdasaryan (now 0-1) over four rounds with a majority decision. No scores were announced, but BoxingScene had it 39-37 - for Sukiasyan.

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

In a TV-opener of a local show (a three-fight collision between Russian and Colombian fighters plus the IBF I/C lightweight title clash) at Krylia Sovetov Arena in Moscow, Russia, promoted by Vladimir Hryunov, much hyped female debutant Anna Boyarkina (0-1) failed to impress and dropped a four-round majority decision to her Latvian counterpart Anastasiya Tereshenkova (1-0).
