Dychko KOs Bakhtov in one

6’9 heavyweight Ivan Dychko (10-0, 10 KOs), who won Olympic super heavyweight bronze medals in both 2012 and 2016, scored a 60-second one-punch KO against 41-year-old Denis Bakhtov (39-19, 26 KOs) on Saturday at Baluan Sholak Sports Palace in Almaty, Kazakhstan. A right hand put Bakhtov on his back for his 9th straight loss.

Former IBF lightweight title challenger Isa Chaniev (15-3, 7 KOs) came off the canvas in round one to flatten previously unbeaten Nurtas Azhbenov (11-1, 4 KOs) in round three. Chaniev landed a flush right hand that turned out the lights for Azhbenov.

In the main event, southpaw junior lightweight Sultan Zaurbek (11-0, 7 KOs) outpointed Ronnie Clark (21-5-2, 10 KOs) in a ten round snoozer for the vacant WBO European title. Scores were 100-90, 99-91, 100-90.

Fast-tracking junior middleweight Tursynbay Kulakhmet (4-0, 3 KOs) scored a tenth round TKO over journeyman Aleksei Evchenko (19-15-2, 8 KOs). It looked like it would be a short night when Kulakhmet dropped Evchenko in round one. Evchenko, however, stuck around until round ten. Kulakhmet finally dropped him again and got the stoppage with his follow-up barrage. Time was 1:57.

Welterweight prospect Talgat Shayken (5-0, 3 KOs) stopped Alexander Sharonov (12-6-2, 6 KOs) in round seven. Sharonov indicated that he didn’t wish to continue after apparently suffering a jaw injury. Time was 1:53.

Super middleweight Dauren Yeleussinov (9-1-1, 8 KOs) was victorious when Arman Rysbek (7-1, 6 KOs) couldn’t continue after round six.

  • Well, there wasn’t much suspense while waiting to hear this result. Pretty good Sergei Liakhovich impression by Bakhtov on that KO. I suppose Dychko’s team didn’t want anything too rough after the 2 year layoff. Where’s he been anyway?
