Troyanovskiy-Kayuni Headlines March 8 Card in Moscow

By Alexey Sukachev

WBA #4 Eduard Troyanovskiy (13-0, 10 KOs) will be seen in action on March 8 at the famed “Krilya Sovetov” sports arena in Moscow, Russia, as a part of a new boxing series, arranged by the most notorious Russian promoter Vladimir Hryunov. Troyanovskiy, 32, will put his PABA title at risk for the first time against undefeated but vastly untested Malawian Osgood Kayuni (14-0-1, 7 KOs).

Eduard is best known for his knockout win over former WBO world title challenger Matt Zegan in December 2010. That sound victory turned out to be his curse, as Troyanovskiy missed more than a year after that. He came back in 2012 under Vladimir Hryunov’s promotion and got four wins in a row, including a thriller versus Brazilian Claudinei Lacierda and a fast stoppage win over upset-minded veteran Walter Estrada. Kayuni, 28, isn’t as well-known. The compatriot of world-ranked light heavyweight Isaac Chilemba has fought just once outside of his native land, and none of his victims (including 18-0 Wilson Masmaba and 12-0 Ishmael Kuchocha were) were even remotely capable.

It looks like Russian lightweight champion Andrey Klimov (14-0, 8 KOs) will take part in the co-feature. Klimov, 30, is tentatively set to face rugged Ghanaian George Ashie (23-4-1, 16 KOs), a former Commonwealth titlist, over twelve rounds of action for the vacant IBF I/C title. Klimov has fought his last four fights overseas, which include wins over 18-1-1 Ty Barnett and 6-0 Robert Rodriguez.

Local middleweight crowd-pleasers Oleg Liseev (6-1, 4 KOs) and Dmitry Chudinov (7-0-1, 4 KOs0 will be a part of the undercard. They are listed fighting Colombian knockout artists Dionisio Miranda (21-8-2, 18 KOs) and Milton Nunez (23-6-1, 23 KOs) respectively, but these fights haven’t been confirmed yet. Debutants Alexey Stakanchikov and Anna Boyarkina will be featured in four-rounders as well.
