«Everything was under control. In general, except for the knockdown, the fight was easy. In the end, I didn't follow it a little bit and got a punch. It was good that we managed to recover quickly. Somewhere, perhaps, he lost his concentration. I kind of remember and at the same time do not remember this blow. Most likely, he stepped back, put his hands down and got it. I thought that the opponent would fly in the eighth round, but failed. He is well done, patient. Yes, he does not know much, but he has a strong blow, during the bout. I naturally forgot about it. The preparation was very hard, almost three and a half months, after which I need to rest. Now I will have a week of rest, and I will start preparing for the next fight, it is planned for September».

«For 22 years of my boxing career, I was knocked down for the first time today. Of course, it's not surprising in professional boxing, there are such gloves that you almost sleep and so come that it will not seem enough. The opponent passed, but a little signal caught him today. The opponent can't say that it's difficult, I'm sure that such an opponent should pass at this level. It is higher than I am in the rating, so now I can rise to the top at his expense. The preparation took place in Ekaterinburg, initially I was preparing for the fight on July 29 in Chelyabinsk, but the tournament was cancelled and we decided to postpone the fight here. We are planning to have a rest. I had my third training now, I'm really tired, I want to go to the sea with my family, have a rest and come back with new strength».

The judges couldn't figure out the winner in the fight between Turgumbekov and Karimov. 

The fight began with tactical work - both boxers sit down in search of options for rapprochement, look closely, but they act very sharply. By the end of the first round Turgunbekov took the center of the ring, but Karimov quietly moved around the opponent and did his job.

The next two rounds the Ural boxer worked as number one, and Karimov continued to walk around his opponent. At the same time, both Turgumbekov and the Turkish boxer were attacked. In the third round Karimov himself struck a side kick, and he was on the verge of knockout, but withstood. Turgumbekov did not develop success, but continued to box at the same speed.

Interestingly, the first clinch in the match happened only in the fourth round - fatigue began to affect. Only by the sixth round Karimov began to move more slowly than his opponent, and Turgmbekov began to take part in almost all attacks.

In six rounds, the result of the fight was a draw (58:56, 57:57, 57:57) by the majority of judges.

Erzhan Turgumbekov, a boxer of the RCC Academy of Martial Arts, commented on the fight with Javihirbek Karimov from Turkey, which ended in a draw. 

«In the first two rounds, I did a reconnaissance to assess the weaknesses and strengths of the opponent. In the next rounds, it seemed to me that I had everything under my control. After the fight I did not understand why the decision was delayed for so long, like I won, but it turned out like this. I disagree with the judges' decision. I would like a rematch, ready anytime, anywhere. We had about a month of preparation and initially we were preparing for the title fight in Germany, but for some reason we couldn't go, so we didn't miss an opportunity and came to this tournament. I know my opponent, a good boxer, he has great achievements in terms of amateurs. We are planning to have a rest and decide what to do next».

Adleiba won the eighth victory in a row

The fight started in a very calm manner. Adleiba took the initiative, but the first minute he worked only jabs. Then Soh Fonkou took the center of the ring and began to press Adleiba against the ropes. As a result, the first round was held in a kind of "swing". 

Then the picture of the fight was different - Adleiba changed the stand, began to provoke the opponent to attack and knocked out the Cameroonian with the left hook. Until the end of the period, Adleiba did everything to win early, but Guerin Soh Fonkou withstood the onslaught of his opponent.

It became obvious that Igor Adleiba found his distance and the opponent's weak point - time after time he tries to hide the left side in various combinations, forcing the opponent to move along the ropes.

Thank Lord everything went without injuries, now I'll have two weeks off and start to train again, to prepare for the next fight.

Nikonov successfully debuted in the professional ring

Karen Avetisyan immediately went ahead, hitting his opponent with a few accent punches. Nikonov took on the role of the second number and gained momentum only in the middle of the stretch. Nikonov moved faster, but did not force the events and acted very carefully, apparently, given the professional experience of Avetisyan.

Nikonov had enough time for the first three minutes to feel confident in the professional ring, and in the second part he began to act more boldly. Avetisyan stopped keeping up with his opponent's speed and started working on counterattacks.  

By the middle of the fight, Nikonov had taken the initiative and started to build up the speed, sometimes allowing himself to give up after the kick. At one such moment, Avetisyan got a good kick from underneath, but the debutant did not seem to feel the blow.

In the final round, Avetisyan closed down and left in defense. Nikonov, in his turn, started looking for options for knockout, but the winner of the fight was determined by the referees. The unanimous decision of the judges was taken by the Ural boxer Ivan Nikonov.

Ivan Nikonov commented on the victory over Karen Avetisyan by a unanimous decision 

«It was my debut, and frankly, I was waiting for another result. I thought it would be something like amateur boxing, but today even before the fight there was a different feeling and when I got into the ring I realized that I was in a completely different atmosphere. It was harder than amateurs. I did not expect this from an opponent, I knew that he was experienced, but I thought it would be easier. It was hard to get close to him, to find an approach. Persistence and strength of spirit helped me win. I prepared only with the coach, without additional support. We were preparing as for amateur boxing. There are plans to train hard, because the offer of fight can come at any moment and you need to be ready».

«Did I expect such a quick outcome? It's boxing. I initially counted on a knockout, of course, I wanted to last at least two rounds to feel everything. But there was a moment that could not be missed in any way.  As for my opponent, I can say that any opponent is dangerous in boxing and any shot can be conceded, so I was still careful. Initially, I had other plans, but offered this fight, and I decided not to miss this opportunity. Thanks to coach Andriy Napolskikh, who always keeps me in shape, I'm ready to go out and box at any time».

Evgenii Liashkov defeats Beimbet Esov by the unanimous decision 

The fight began with heavy exchanges of blows - and Lyashkov and Esov were invested in each kick, and the first round turned out to be quite impressive. Interestingly, both boxers received instructions from their cutmen to slow down the speed of the fight and distribute the forces over the entire distance.

In the second half of the fight Liashkov increased the speed, forcing the opponent to come closer more often. The Ural team's tactics paid off almost immediately - Esov misses a lot and loses his strength.

By the final stretch it became clear that Esov could only be saved by a knockout, but Liashkov was much fresher and brought the fight to a decision - the judges unanimously gave the victory to him.

Ural boxer Evgenii Liashkov commented on the victory over Beimbet Esov by the unanimous decision 

«It was a good fight, now I feel a little tired. In general, the task was completed, but not completely. There were a lot of unnecessary missed kicks, there was something to work on. The opponent is patient, did not expect that he would go forward and press. We planned that I would go forward, but it was not quite possible to do it. I want to thank coach Mirkhakim Saburov, Magomed Kurbanov and the whole team for their help in preparing for the fight. The plans for the future are to box, gain fights, win».
