David Vasilievich Dzukaev vs. Sergii Vasilievich Shevchuk, 6 rounds @ light heavyweight
Mikhail Buffer (should be Bufferov, like Abbas-ov earlier) gets me every time
Shevchuk looks like he just came out of a local bar.
I wonder if he realizes that far more fans know him by that name than Zagorsky, internationally/on the internet.
Well, he probably was a short-notice call-up, as he missed weight by 1¼lbs.
But yeah, not an intimidating physique whatsoever. Scrawny/flabby, and with the face of a middle aged dock worker.
punched when down
How much jab would a Shevchuk eat if a Shevchuk could eat jab?
(A: roughly ninety percent of what Dzukaev feels like feeding him)
Well that was fast and unsatisfying.
Body shot, and that'll do it.
Actually that was a jab - making this a rare case of someone being

Vladimir Olegovich Nikitin vs. Rauf Alisa Oğlu Aghayev, 8 rounds @ featherweight
Well, when after WBSS final Gassiev was inactive for long time till get lost ranking in boxing orgs and had been marked as inactive in boxrec too, then why not?
Now he had 1 fight and is marked as active and ranked somewhere, then next fight, then next fight after this. Ofc previous achievements and fights will play role in ranking I think.
He really needs at least some 3-4 tune up fights, 1 he already had, at least isn't inactive. Next fight, then next fight.
Otherwise today doesn't looks that TODAY top 25 ranked boxers are interested to fight with him and doesn't looks that today he might generate enough good money for such opponents purses too.
Will see later, is his comeback successful or isn't.
00:00 - "It was a very difficult three years. Some people turned their backs on me."
01:55 - "Basically, this is my first real heavyweight fight"
02:46 - Gassiev believes that Russian roots are a plus for his rival
03:45 - If Murat wins in three rounds, will this fight give him anything sportingly?
04:53 - Gassiev's coach - Vitaly Slanov - recalls the fight between Tyson and Douglas
05:55 - "The fight with Seferi did not give me anything. But the main thing is that I entered the ring."
06:35 - Battle of views
06:59 - Gassieva is comfortable with such a schedule - one fight in 9 months?
07:21 - How much Murat weighs now and how much he weighed as much as possible
07:30 - "I am still far from Sasha Povetkin ..."
08:08 - If they offer a fight with Usik - Gassiev will not refuse
08:34 - "The fight between Usyk and Joshua is like a fight between Klitschko and Povetkin"
09:04 - Beterbiev believes that if Joshua loses to Usik, then he is a weak boxer. What does Gassiev think?
I can guarantee at least one like for any Russian speakers who can translate some of this interview
A whole like all to yourselves
Just think about that
Nikitin, for anyone unfamiliar, is a Russian amateur boxing legend, although perhaps most famous abroad for defeating Mick Conlan of Ireland very controversially at the Olympics in 2016 (bronze medal).
...like, Joshua vs. Savón level controversy; almost everyone but diehard apologists for Team Russia thought Conlan beat Nikitin.
Conlan avenged the defeat in 2019, handing Nikitin his first pro loss. Since then, Nikitin has picked up yet another blemish, a draw with an unheralded Kazakh last time out.
37 year old Azeri journeyman Rauf "The Lion" Aghayev should give him rounds but is a safe cherry-picked W on paper.
He was a very good amateur but like Paddy Barnes, doesn't seem to have a style suited to the pros at all.
