Russia News: Baysangurov, Kurbanov, Tishchenko, Chuprakov

Hard-hitting fighters Khusseyn Baysangurov (15-1, 13 KOs) and Arman Torosyan (19-7-1, 16 KOs) will collide on February 28 at the Azimut Hotel in St. Petersburg, Russia, in the main event of a nice-packed little show, organized by Zyaki Yunisov of Yuka Promotions and bannered as “KO Kings 2”.

Baysangurov, 25, is one fight removed from his bitter decision loss to stylist Aram Amirkhanyan. Torosyan, 36, has lost three straight. He is best known for the stoppage win over then 27-2 Reda Zam Zam in 2013. Basyangurov vs. Torosyan is set for ten rounds.

22-year old Odessa-born light heavyweight Ramil Gadzhiev (9-1-1, 5 KOs) takes on Belarussian Ilya Kharlamov (9-6, 6 KOs) over eight. Also on the card are several prospects, including Uzbek Javlonbek Karimov (6-0, 4 KOs), Zurab Kvistiani (6-1, 2 KOs) and Moldovan Edgard Moskvichev (8-1-2, 4 KOs).


Titov/RCC (Russian Cuprum Company) Promotions, led by an indomitable Russian promoter German Titov, will set stage for a big night of action on March 7 in Ekaterinburg, Russia. The show, which takes place at the RCC Boxing Academy, will once again feature the best of the Ural-based company.

Headlining the event is WBC #7, WBO #9 and IBF #15 super featherweight Mukhammadkhuja Yakubov (15-0, 9 KOs) of Tajikistan, who is about to test him against his toughest (at least, on paper) opponent in former WBC super flyweight champion Tomas Rojas (51-18-1, 34 KOs), who had previously scored wins over former world champions Kohei Kono, Nobuo Nashiro, Isaac Bustos and Jhonny Gonzalez. Yakubov, 24, will put his WBC International super featherweight title at risk for the third time. He is expected to shine against the Mexican veteran, who is fifteen years his senior.

In an intriguing intrinsic contest between two Titov/RCC super featherweights, rapidly developing Mark “Canelo” Urvanov (17-2-1, 9 KOs) clashes against local Kyrgyz Akzhol Sulaymanbek Uulu (15-0, 8 KOs).

WBO #13 Urvanov has just stopped ex-title challenger Evgeny Chuprakov in another domestic clash. WBA #6 Akzhol, 29, is more experienced than Urvanov, 23, but shouldn’t be considered a favorite.

2016 Rio Olympics heavyweight gold medalist Evgeny Tishchenko (6-0, 4 KOs) will look to shine at his best and to improve his record against Argentinean Marcos Antonio Aumada (21-8, 16 KOs) in what should be an easy night for the champion. WBO #9 and IBF #13 Tischenko will risk his WBO I/C cruiserweight title in this fight.

WBA #4 and WBC/WBO #7 ranked light middleweight Magomed Kurbanov (18-0, 11 KOs) will also risk his title – WBO International variety – against an ever dangerous TBA.

Super featherweight Evgeny Chuprakov, who unsuccessfully challenged Masayuki Ito for the title just over a year ago, will look to rebound from his upset loss to Urvanov against another fighter with an uncovered loss in Vladislav Krasnoshein (7-1-1, 2 KOs). Chuprakov is 21-2, 11 KOs.

Undefeated Nikita Kuznetsov (11-0-2, 5 KOs) clashes against Dmitry Khasiev (8-2-2, 2 KOs) over six, while super bantamweight Asror Vokhidov (6-0, 3 KOs) from Tajikistan battles Erzhan Zalilov (11-1-1, 5 KOs) of Kazakhstan. Several other prospects, including Igor Adleiba (9-0, 3 KOs), will be featured in the undercard.
