Tervel Pulev, Bogdan Dinu Secure Wins in Bulgaria

Tervel Pulev, a younger (but not by much) brother of world-rated heavyweight Kubrat Pulev and a successful amateur himself, fought in front of his fans for the third time as a pro, and it was successful again.

As the main event holder Pulev, 36, outworked and outboxed American cruiserweight DeShon Webster (12-3-2, 6 KOs) to a landslide unanimous decision (118-110, 120-108, and 120-108) in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, this past Saturday night. Pulev fought around Europe (mostly in Germany) and got three fights overseas. He is 15-0, 12 KOs, but not rated.


On the undercard, Romanian heavyweight Bogdan Dinu (19-2, 15 KOs) bounced back with a stoppage following back-to-back kayo losses to Jarrell Miller and Kubrat Pulev. Dinu, 33, halted South African veteran Osborne Machimana (23-14-2, 17 KOs) in four.

Light heavyweight Spas Genov loves to fight and he is successful when he does, which doesn’t come often. Genov scored his twelfth win by decisioning Georgian import Levan Shonia (15-18, 11 KOs) over eight. Scores were: 79-73, 79-73, and 79-74 – for Genov, who is now 12-0, 8 KOs, in a pro career dating back to 2008. Shonia is 1-13 since 2013.

Also, in a stunner that wasn’t a stunner at all, unheralded trialhorse Borislav Zankov (12-27-1, 5 KOs) stopped 47-year old veteran Konstantin “KoKo Tyson” Semerdjiev (34-19-2, 21 KOs) in two. Semerdjiev just cannot stop doing it, fighting sporadically into his 27th year as a pro. His biggest win was a decision over future European and WBA light heavyweight champion Bruno Girard in 1993, when both were novices.

John Wirt and Ivaylo Gotzev organized the event.

What a strange card. A 36-year old cruiserweight whos 15-0, an eleven year pro who’s 12-0 and a 27-year veteran who lost to a guy with a 12-27 record.
