Julius Indongo Destroys Eduard Troyanovsky in One - HUGE Upset

By Alexey Sukachev

Moscow, Russia - In a massive upset, Eduard Troyanovsky (25-1, 22KOs) was knocked out in 40 seconds of the first round when unknown, huge underdog Julius Indongo (21-0, 11KOs) blasted him out cold with a single winging shot to capture the IBF, IBO junior welterweight world titles.

Despite fighting for the first time (as a pro) out of his native Namibia, WBO #3 and IBF #10 Indongo isn't a novice in boxing, having represented his land at the Beijing Olympics.

The end came suddenly as the Russian, rated TBRB #4, walked into a picturesque left cross that had him down and immediately out, leaving the crowd silent in disbelief.

TBRB #10 Indongo, 33, is now 21-0, 11 KOs, with two belts and long-lasting fame. He becomes his country's fourth major titleholder following Harry Simon, Paulus Moses and Paulus Ambunda. Troyanovskiy drops down to 25-1, 22 KOs, and has little time left for comeback at 36 years old.


Reality show and real life are drastically different. 18-year old Muscovite juvenile champion Vladimir Myshev learned it a hard way.

Myshev, a finalist of "The Fight and the City" show, showed heart but was overmatched by real professional Georgy Chelokhsaev, the WBO Youth light welterweight beltholder. He was better in the first but lost rounds two and three before being knocked down and stopped on his feet in the fourth and final round. Chelokhsaev improves to 13-1-1, 11 KOs, signs with the World of Boxing and receives new apartments from Andrey Ryabinskiy. Brave Myshev is 0-1 with a 2nd prize of 400 000 rubles.


For all his blemishes and flaws, Russian cruiserweight terror Dmitry Kudryashov (20-1, 20 KOs) has one great equalizer - unmatched punching power. He showed it again in the first-round blowout of WBC #14 Colombian Santander Silgado, producing yet another spectacular knockout in just 94 seconds.

Silgado (27-3, 21 KOs) was dropped with a powerful left hook early on, got up badly shaken and ate another left finisher which forced him to be out for several minutes. WBC #4, IBF #10 and WBO # 13 Kudryashov acquired a vacant WBC Silver cruiserweight title.


Russian female light welterweight local favorite Svetlana Kulakova (11-0-1, 1 KO) decisioned French import Prisca Vicot over ten for a vacant IBO 140lb title. Scores were: 100-91, 99-91, and 99-91 - for Svetlana Kulakova.


Two Russian amateur prodigies made their pro debut in the deep undercard of the show.

Heavyweight Andrey Afonin (1-0, 1 KO) easily knocked out Argentinean journeyman Emilio Ezequil Zarate (20-18-3, 11 KOs) at 0:28 of the second round.

Cruiserweight Alexey Yegorov (1-0, 1 KO) was matched considerably tougher but managed to halt usually durable Polish opponent Lukasz Rusiewicz at 2:23 of the second round.

Weird looking impact, punch landed on the chin, jolted the head so quickly I didn't notice it until the replays. Short violent shock of the brain. Troyanovsky was imobilized before his head even had a chance to bounce off of…

[QUOTE=garycarnivals;17251692]look at the size/reach difference, idiots. Genetics is everything.[/QUOTE] That guy looked big for JWW. And landed a perfect punch. Match him against Crawford.

Never heard of this Indongo guy, but I guess it was just a matter of time for Troya cause he didn't look good in his last fight. It looked like Troya saw it coming, but maybe it was heavier than…
