Ural Boxing Welterweight Prospects Headline in Noginsk

By Alexey Sukachev

Ural Boxing Promotions, a small but fairly successful boxing team, which is focused on young, rising welterweight contenders, comes back to its present fistic activities this coming Sunday in Noginsk, Moscow Region, Russia.

In the main fight of the card, Aslanbek Kozaev (19-0, 6 KOs), 24, and the older brother of the late knockout artist Khetag Kozaev, will test his improving skills against the toughest opponent in his career so far. Kozaev, who is once again back to the welterweight limit, will be matched with tough Belarussian Andrey Abramenko (17-1-2, 4 KOs), also 24, who is known for his one-sided but hard-fought loss to British star Matthew Hatton half a year ago. The vacant EBU-EE title will be at risk in this battle.

In another twelve-rounder, Serbian fighter Petar Zivkovic (10-0, 5 KOs) will try to capture the vacant WBC CISBB light welterweight belt against Uzbek Ismatullo Gulomov (6-5-2, 5 KOs), who is 6-0 in his last six bouts.

Other contests are scheduled for six rounds each. WBC #7 welterweight Anton Novikov (23-0, 9 KOs) will tune-up against Kyrgyz Urmat Ryskeldiev (6-2, 5 KOs), while his 19-year old teammate and WBC #30 ranked welterweight Konstantin Ponomarev (13-0, 6 KOs) looks to do the same versus Belarussin Vadim Astapuk (10-20-1, 2 KOs).

Other fights at cruiserweight limit:
Elyor Gulomov (5-0, 5 KOs) vs. Teymuraz Kekelidze (16-32-1, 12 KOs)
Murat Gassiev (3-0, 1 KO) vs. Igor Pilipenko (3-11-1)
