Details Are Finalized For Card Taking Place in Crimea

By Alexey Sukachev

The details were finalized for the WBA-dominated six-fight boxing event, which will be organized by Russian promoter Vladimir Hryunov this coming Sunday (August 23) in Sevastopol, Crimea. This event, labeled “Mount Gasfordt Battle”, will be a part of a huge bike show.

In the main event, Russia-based light heavyweight and Russian national champion Stas Kashtanov (33-1, 19 KOs), best known for being the WBA interim champion at 168 lbs, will once again contest for the very same belt in a new weight class – this time against Dominican fighter Felix Valera (12-0, 12 KOs), who is rated #8 by the WBA and fighting abroad for the very first time. WAB #7 Kashtanov’s lone loss occurred in his best career performance – a split decision loss to the two-time super middleweight champion Karoly Balzsay in 2011.

Light welterweight Ramal Amanov (8-0) of Azerbaijan will try to get his first stoppage win against another solely domestic Dominican fighter Ranses Payano (19-1, 8 KOs). The fight is set for the WBA International 140lb title.

WBA #2 Russian middleweight Dmitry Chudinov (14-1-2, 9 KOs) will come back for the first time since his bitter los to Chris Eubank Jr. this February to fight for a vacant WBA International 160lb title versus Mexican import Adrian Luna Flores (18-3-1, 11 KOs).

In quite possibly the biggest single clash of the show, Russian national champion Dilmurod Satybaldiev (8-1, 2 KOs) will clash against veteran puncher Dmitry Sukhotskiy (22-3, 16 KOs), who is fighting for the first time since his crushing loss to WBC champion Adonis Stevenson in December. Sukhotskiy, 34, is rated #13 by the WBC.
The show will be visited by Roy Jones Jr., a special guest of the event.

Other fights:

Nikolay Buzolin (1-0-1) vs. Diego Garduno (3-0, 1 KO) – 6 rounds, Super featherweight
Magomed Madiev (1-0, 1 KO) vs. Artem Merzlikin (5-1-1, 3 KOs) – 4 round, Middleweight

What will the cosequences be for all of those (promoters, managers, boxers) who are going to participate on the event in annexed (and not recognized by any other country) territory of neighbor state?
