In the opening bout, former Russian National Champion Belik Galanov enjoyed his season debut against Rafako Hussars’ AIBA World Boxing Championships quarter-finalist Dawid Jagodzinski. Unable to repeat his form of Season V, Jadodzinski was in trouble early on and a series of lethal Galanov right hands soon gave the Moscow crowd a TKO win to cheer.
Step forward Russian Boxing Team's Petr Khamukov and Rafako Hussars Poland's Tomasz Jablonski, two middleweight greats repeating their dramatic final of the 2015 EUBC European Confederation Boxing Championships. The result was to be the same as that gold medal epic despite Jablonski’s WSB pedigree, with Khamukov in imperious form to take all five rounds and ensure the Russians of the match win.
The two heavyweights Islam Tekeev and Poland’s Michal Olas then rounded off the night in fitting style, the Russian Tekeev on the attack throughout before surviving a late surge to take the points win and secure a 4-1 in front of the delighted Moscow fans. The Russians will host Venezuela Caciques on 1 April in a match that could decide who tops the group.
