Berinchik, Bursak, Malynovskiy Win in Brovary, Ukraine

A number of locally-bred Ukrainian fighters, promoted mostly by K2 Ukraine, got back to fighting practice against winnable opposition this past Saturday at the KRC Terminal in Brovary, on the outskirts of Kiev, Ukraine.

The star of the show was Denis Berinchik, a member of the Ukraine’s Golden Squad, which dominated amateur boxing with an unprecedented edge in early 2010’s, and both 2011 world and 2012 Olympic silver medalist.

Fighting as a lightweight, WBO #7-rated Berinchik, 31, retained his WBO International belt for the second time, outclassing lanky but overmatched Mexican Patricio Lopez Moreno (26-4, 19 KOs), 24, over twelve one-sided rounds.


Coming up short in reach advantage, the Ukrainian slugger made up for it in activity and finesse, dominating Moreno to one-sided scores on all the scorecards: 120-108, 120-108, and 120-109.

Berinchik has called out WBO #1 ranked American Teofimo Lopez and WBA Super featherweight champion Gervonta Davis after the fight. He is now 12-0, with 7 KOs.

Former European middleweight champion and a two-time world title challenger Maxim Bursak came back after ten months of inactivity to stop Georgian trialhorse Beka Mukhulishvili (5-8, 2 KOs) in five rounds. Bursak, who lost one-sidedly to Gilberto Ramirez Sanchez for the WBO super middleweight belt in April 2017, is now 35-5-2, 16 KOs.

“That was just a warm-up”, commented Bursak afterwards. “Follow my career and I’ll surprise you with a number of great fights”.

Long-time featherweight contender Oleg Malynovskiy, who has lost his high ranking due to regrettable activity, won for the second time in 2019, scoring a workmanlike unanimous decision over Italian Vittorio Parrinelli (11-4, 2 KOs).

Malinovskiy, 31, is now 25-0, 7 KOs. Scores were: 80-72, 79-73, and 79-74.

Another former Olympian Dmytro Mitrofanov extended his record to 7-0-1, 4 KOs, after stopping Serbian import Novak Radulovic (9-5-1, 4 KOs) in four.

Finally, light welterweight Mishiko Beselia (19-1, 13 KOs), who was sensationally stopped by unheralded Kelvin Dotel in December 2018, came back to the W-column after stopping no-hoper Eduard Merinets (4-9, 2 KOs) also in four.
