Victor Postol Dominates Behzod Nabiyev in Kiev

By Alexey Sukachev

WBC #1 light welterweight Victor Postol (25-0, 10 KOs)  capped off his finest career year tonight at the SportLife club in Kiev, Ukraine, with a bang. Postol, who tries to secure a fight versus unified champion Danny Garcia somewhere in 2014 (or, at least, compete for the interim crown), easily dismantled hard-nosed Uzbek journeyman Behzod Nabiyev (22-7-1, 16 KOs) over ten one-sided rounds. Nabiyev was down once in the fourth and twice in the tenth. Elite Boxing's official portal lists the official scores as 100-79 (on all cards), which is probably a joke, since Nabiyev was down only three times, not a dozen times. The Uzbek is 1-4 this year.

Rising featherweight Oleg Malynovskiy (11-0, 3 KOs) looked solid in stopping vastly overmatched Georgian opponent Nikoloz Berkatsashvili (20-9, 8 KOs) in three. The Georgian was down once in the second and three times in the third stanzas.

Another Georgian Alexander Benidze looked better against young kayo artist Ilya Primak (7-0, 6 KOs), forcing him to go the distance for the first time as a pro. Scores were 59-55 (twice) and 59-56 - for Primak. Benidze moves to the negative zone, being 13-14-2, with 6 KOs.

Finally, Kiev-based Russian Marat Kulumbegov (13-0-1, 7 KOs) scored a narrow unanimous decision over Ruslan Schelev (10-2, 6 KOs). Scores were: 78-74 (twice) and 77-75.
