Bacskai Crushes Opponent, Ready to Step Up in Competition

by Tamas Pradarics

Middleweight prospect Balazs Bacskai shined in his second appearance this year on his way to grab his sixth win in the same amount of fights in the pro ranks. The Hungarian boxer battered and stopped Ukrainian Dmytro Semernin in three frames in a bout serving as the main event on a card in Oradea, Transylvania.

Bacskai (6-0, 3 KO) took control from the first bell and sharp shot the head of his foe who lacked a proper defense as well as upper body movement. At the end of the first stanza, Semernin (13-5-1, 7 KO) went back to his corner with a bloody face and a puffed-up nose. It is likely that the Ukrainian broke his nose early thanks to a clean uppercut by his unbeaten foe.

The 30-year-old former amateur European champ Bacskai continued to abuse his helpless counterpart in the second frame while Semernin slip his mouthpiece out more and more often to buy some time to rest. The referee warned the wounded fighter that he was taking a point away but that did not happen as the third man in the squared circle called a halt to the contest in round three to save the Ukrainian from further punishment. At the time Semernin’s face was a bloody mess.

With his performance, Bacskai clearly proved he is ready to take a step up in competition, a move the boxer’s promoter, Felix Racz embraces with open arms.

“Balazs showed a great performance. There was no pressure on his shoulder. Everybody loved his output tonight. From now on, I’ll try to bring him opponents from the top 100 at middleweight,” told Racz briefly to BoxingScene.com.

Welterweight Flavius Biea outpointed willing Georgian journeyman Giorgi Gujejiani (10-8-2, 7 KO) over eight rounds in the co-main event. Biea (13-1, 6 KO) happened to be the more talented one of the two, handling his largely moveless foe with precise jabs and left hooks.

The return of cruiserweight Tamas Toth against Giorgi Tevdorashvili backfired as the Georgian journeyman started to move intelligently and also bothered Toth (9-6-4, 5 KO) with his roughhouse tactics. At the end of six frames, Tevdorashvili (28-25-4, 17 KO) walked away with a well-deserved unanimous decision victory.

Robert Cristea (9-28, 6 KO) defended his Romanian title for the first time with a ten-round decision win over Nicolae Dragos (1-10-1, 1 KO) at middleweight.

Heavy-handed Jozsef Darmos (9-2-2, 8 KO), undefeated prospect Cezar Juratoni (8-0, 6 KO), and debutant Barnabas Hegyi (1-0, 1 KO) all grabbed wins inside the distance in preliminary bouts.

The sold-out event, that served as the first fight card in Transsylvania by Felix Promotion International, was televised by M4 Sport in Hungary as well as Digi TV in Romania.
