Evgeny Chuprakov Stops Alexander Munoz in The Ninth

By Alexey Sukachev

Russia - Evgeny Chuprakov hasn't convinced anyone of his world-class mastery and its connection with his world-class ambitions. That doesn't meant much for the local fans at the RCC Boxing Academy, who witnessed thrilling two-way action between Chuprakov and former two-time WBA super flyweight champion Alexander Munoz, which ended early in the ninth with Munoz waving his hand in a sign of surrender after yet another onslaught by the ever aggressive Russian.

Chuprakov, 29 and nicknamed Happy Gilmore, was coming off his first career loss - a debilitating drubbing off the hands of reigning WBO super featherweight champion Masayuki Ito on the eve of 2019 in Japan. Munoz, meanwhile, an old horse at 40, has been losing his steam for a long-long time, his championship years being more than a decade ago.

However, in the opening rounds the Venezuelan gave fits to Chuprakov, answering blow-by-blow and continuously troubling the Russian grinder. As the rounds went by, Munoz hasn't got less successful, yet he got far less productive, throwing less and clearly showing signs of fatigue.

After the mid-point, although being hurt at times, The Happy Gilmore delivered more heat than his opponent. Munoz was thrown down a couple of times and rapidly losing his steam. His face also suffered several bruises and gashes and he was hit at will by the end of the eighth. Somehow continue standing after one onslaught after another he was groggy, yet neither a referee, nor his corner reacted so that the veteran fighter waved the fight off himself 59 seconds into the ninth.

With a win, Chuprakov improves his record to 21-1, 11 KOs, while Munoz drops down to 40-9, 31 KOs.

Fighting as a lightweight, The Uzbek Prince Ravshanbek Umurzakov (9-0, 7 KOs) was forced to engage in the toughest fight of his young career and passed the test by outpointing the South African import Anthony Moloisane (11-4-1, 7 KOs) unanimously over ten hard-fought rounds.

Umurzakov was more aggressive than his opponent but big, tough Moloisane was resilient and responded in style. Nevertheless the Uzbek prospect showed more skills and dominated a majority of rounds. Neither boxer was seriously hurt, and no scores were announced afterwards.

-------------------------

Super featherweight Ruslan Kamilov (6-0-1, 3 KOs) scored a methodical workmanlike decision over journeyman Evgueny Smelov (5-8-1, 4 KOs) over eight rounds. It was a unanimous one.

-------------------------
Russia-based Kazakhstani Stanislav Kalitskiy (8-0, 3 KOs) further improved his record with a workmanlike unanimous decision over durable Filipino import Landy Cris Leon (12-19-5, 5 KOs).

-------------------------

Abkhaz native Igor Adleiba (7-0, 3 KOs) survived some rocky moments early on and cruised to a unanimous decision over tough-as-nails journeyman Alexey Tukhtarov (3-14-5, 3 KOs) in a six-rounder. Tukhtarov, whose record can misguise his opponents, almost knocked Adleiba down in the first.

-------------------------
