Baysangurov vs. Pitto

After a close opening round which went to Baysangurov Pitto came back well in the second switching his attacks to head and body bringing blood from a cut high on the bridge of Baysangurov’s nose. .Baysangurov took the third with some good combinations but with his unconventional crouching style Pitto scored well to the body and got through with some right uppercuts to edge the fourth and fifth with Baysangurov going to the body trying to slow the Argentinian. Pitto continued to bang home jabs in the sixth with Baysangurov still focusing on the body. Pitto started the seventh well but was pulled up by a low punch from Baysangurov. Pitto was given a very brief bit of recovery time and when the fight resumes Pitto went down under a series of punches. He beat the count but his work rate dropped and Baysangurov took the eighth and had Pitto badly shaken in the ninth. The tenth was close but as Pitto tired over the last two rounds Baysangurov was in control and took the unanimous verdict. Scores 116-112 twice and 119-109 for Baysangurov. The 20-year-old Baysangurov, a Kiev-based Russian, turned pro at 16. He wins the vacant WBA Inter-Continental title. Khuseyn (see below) is his brother and he is a cousin of the former WBO super welter champion Zaurbek Baysangurov. Now based in Spain the 30-year-old Pitto sprang a surprise in 2012 when he halted the 27-1 Reda Zam Zam and then in 2013 in real shock as he decision the then unbeaten Jack Culcay in Germany. He lost to Zaurbek Baysangurov in 2014 for the IBO title and had been 7-1-1 going into this fight

Baysangurov vs. Villalobos

Elder brother Khuseyn makes it a family double as he stops Argentinian Villalobos in six rounds. The pattern for this one was set in the first as Baysangurov floored Villalobos with a body punch late in the round. Villalobos made it to the bell but was under pressure from then on. His cause was not helped by some low punches from Baysangurov but really Villalobos was never in the fight. Over the fourth and fifth Villalobos attempted some blatant butts and got away with them but he was totally exhausted and taking punishment when his corner threw in the towel in the sixth. Baysangurov, 23 was defending his WBA Continental title for the second time and the IBF International title for the first time. First loss inside the distance for Villalobos who loses when he tries to step up and all five of his losses have come against unbeaten fighters.

Gadzhyiev vs. Veron

Young prospect Gadzhyiev demolishes experienced Veron inside two rounds. Gadzhyiev bombarded Veron with punches over the first three minutes and then put him down with a combination to the head in the second. Veron made it to his feet but was wobbling badly and his corner threw in the towel. The tall 20-year-old Ukrainian, who turned pro at 17, was defending his WBC Youth title. As an amateur he won gold at the European Junior Championships and gold at both the World Junior Championships and the World Youth Olympic Games tournament. Naturally expectations were high but in his second pro fight he appeared on the Deontay Wilder vs. Artur Szpilka show in New York 2016 and lost to unbeaten Uzbek Botirsher Obidov… He is now 6-0-1 in his last 7 but the jury is still out on how he will fare as a pro. Now eight losses by KO/TKO for the former Argentinian super welter champion Veron.
