Ruslan Provodnikov Tops Off Night of Finishes in Moscow

Moscow played host to a talented field of boxers this Friday, November 28th.  Those boxers delivered in a night full of spectacular finishes.  Former WBO Light Welterweight Champ, Ruslan Provodnikov got back into the win column in his first fight since winning his WBO title.  Ruslan Provodnikov (24-3) was able to finish Jose Luis Castillo (66-13-1) in the 5th round of their 12-round main event.

Undefeated Russian Eduard Troyanovsky (20-0, 17 KO) made quick work of Colombian lightweight Jose Augstin Feria (16-2-1) to win the WBA Inter-Continental Lightweight title.  The Russian was the longer fighter, using his jab to control distance in the early going.  With just over a minute into the fight, Eduard was sliding to his left with his jab before landing a clubbing right hook counter that put Feria on the canvas.  Feria would answer the count, but the Russian used his superior boxing technique and control of the ring to put Feria on the ropes.  Troyanovsky throw a right hand over the left guard that missed, followed by a left uppercut that missed and a one shot right hook that put Feria down for good.  Troyanovsky finished the fight with about then seconds remaining, improving his undefeated record with his 17th knockout victory.

Heavy handed cruiserweights met as Dmitry Kudryashov (16-0, 16 KO) fought Juan Carlos Gomez (55-4, 40 KO).  The fight didn’t last long, Dmitry dug to the body with a right straight and came back over the top with a left hand that would mask the finishing blow, a straight right that landed flush on the jaw of Gomez.  Dmitry’s right hand sent Gomez crashing straight back into the ropes.  Kudryashov’s emphatic finish was the 16th knockout of the 29-year-old’s career, a career in which Dmitry has finished all 16 of his opponents.
