Vlasov Dominates Bykhovtsev, Sillakh Clash Up Next on June 2

By Alexey Sukachev

Shamir Petrosyan, a Moscow-based Armenian promoter who is very active recently, continued his work to improve a relatively deserted local fight scene with yet another tourney this past Friday at the Korston Club in Moscow, Russia. Nine fights made this card, two of them being specifically important for local fight fans.

In a non-title cruiserweight attraction, Maxim Vlasov, who gave fits to future WBO super middleweight champion Gilberto Ramirez a year and a while ago, continued his comeback with a solid win over Belarussian heavyweight/cruiserweight journeyman Yuri Bykhovtsev (9-8-2, 5 KOs).

Vlasov, a much taller fighter, dominated the scene with his jab adding stinging left hooks on occasion. Ten rounds went by in similar fashion, and Vlasov, 29, got his 34th win in style with almost identical scores: 100-90, 100-90, and 100-91. Next for him is an intriguing showdown with Ukrainian former world title challenger Ismayl Sillakh on June 2nd in Moscow. Vlasov is now 34-2, with 17 KOs.


In a sole title fight of the night, two former amateur standouts of foreign heritage collided for a vacant Russian light middleweight crown. Kazan-based Armenian Aram Amirkhanyan (4-0, 1 KO) used his power to edge Uzbek import Uktamjon Rakhimov (5-1-1, 1 KO) over ten rounds. Rakhimov is known for getting into a quarterfinal of 2012 London Olympics, where he has lost to Rosniel Iglesias Sotlongo on a narrow decision. This particular decision was also narrow, as Amirkhanyan prevailed on a majority decision: 95-95, 96-95, and 97-94.
