Brovary Weights/Photos: Salamov - 174, Zecirevic - 174

By Dmitry Mikhalchuk and Alexey Sukachev

The scene is set for a fluffy night of boxing tomorrow at the Ice Terminal in the near-Kiev city of Brovary, Ukraine. The show is being promoted by K2 Promotions but will also include fighters from the Union Boxing Promotions, once a prosperous team from a now-troubled city and warfare epicenter of Donetsk, which serves as an assistant for the tourney.

In the main event, WBO #15 light heavyweight Umar Salamov (11-0, 10 KOs) will oppose fellow unbeaten Bosnian Enes Zecirevic (12-0, 8 KOs) in a twelve-round bid for a vacant WBO European title. Tonight both combatants have weighed-in at 174 pounds, 20-year old Salamov being a notch heavier than his 32-year old Swiss-based foe.

Other fights will merely be tune-ups for a set of K2 and Union fighters, preparing for bigger starts. The most interesting collisions will include former WBA welterweight champion Vyacheslav Senchenko (35-2, 24 KOs) against previously unbeaten (and untested) Hungarian Lazslo Toth (19-0-1, 14 KOs) and ex-world title challenger and ex-EBU champion Maxim Bursak (29-3-1, 12 KOs), who is moving to the super middleweight division after two back-to-back losses against Jarrod Fletcher and Martin Murray in the first half of 2014.

“I’m glad to fight again in my Homeland”, proclaimed Bursak. “I decided to change the weight class as I have previously experienced problems, making the middleweight limit. My new target is a championship fight against WBO champion Arthur Arbaham”.

Senchenko was 149.5 lbs, and Toth a bit lighter at 147.5. Bursak was slightly over the super middleweight limit at 168.9 lbs, and his Georgian opponent Ramazi Gogichaishvili (14-3-2, 5 KOs) was just 164.2

Salamov is with K-2 now? He's a 20 year old version of Artur Beterbiev.
