Russia-born, Germany-primarily based super middleweight Evgeny Shvedenko is extra used to fight abroad than in his homeland. despite the fact, he has certainly not disillusioned his countrymen both. On Monday evening, Shvedenko scored one of his most excellent wins, while fighting in St. Petersburg, Russia, with the aid of outpointing tough-hitter Artur Osipov for a vacant WBC international super middleweight title.
Shvedenko, 30, turned into only a notch better than Osipov, who’s 365 days his senior and did little to set up himself in the ring. Osipov turned into unusually protective-minded and didn’t let his punches flow at a desired expense.
Shvedenko sneaked forward along with his jab, landing crisp one-twos to the head of Osipov whenever he got an opportunity. He also mixed his punches with occasional physique assaults. His opponent landed some leather but become inconsistent in doing so and he had not ever been able to carry one decisive equalizer to get Shvedenko’s consideration.
at the end, all three judges had it unanimously for IBF #6 ranked Shvedenko (15-0, 6 KOs): a hundred-90, 99-91 and 99-ninety one. Osipov goes right down to 16-three-1, with eleven KOs.
the cardboard, which was held on the Azimut hotel, changed into promoted by way of Zyaki Yunisov of the YUKA Promotions. also on the card, super middleweight Edgar Moskvichev (11-1-2, four KOs) decisioned Armenian import Arest Saakyan (5-2, 4 KOs) over ten, and welterweight Stepan Diyun (3-0-1, three KOs) made a brief work of Belarussian Dmitry Miliusha (9-5-1, four KOs), who retired early as a result of a painful rib harm.
