Dmitry Chudinov put on a classy display as the interim WBA middleweight champion successfully defended his title against Mehdi Bouadla in Sevastopol, Russia.
‘The Night Wolf’ had way too much in his locker for the experienced Frenchman as Chudinov dropped Bouadla in every round on his way to a stoppage in the third session.
Referee Ingo Barrabas did the right thing in getting Bouadla out of there as Chudinov powered his way to a ninth KO in 14 wins to remain undefeated as a professional.
In the co-feature, promising Russian middleweight Arif Magomedov overcame former Prizefighter UK winner Patrick ‘Tiger’ Mendy with a comprehensive points win.
The 22 year-old put Mendy on the canvas three times in the fight to come away with a 120-105, 119-106, 118-107 victory and push his impressive record to 12-0 with eight stoppages.
Also on the bill, Pavel Doroshilov inflicted a third defeat this year and 23rd in total on faded former world title challenger Danny Williams in a far from competitive four round bout.
There were also triumphs for Dilmurod Satybaldiev at super-middleweight and Ramal Amanov at light-welterweight, who both went the full six rounds against Konstanin Piternov and Wilfrido Buelvas respectively.
