Daniyar Yeleussinov makes impressive UK debut, Felix Cash scores points triumph in London
Daniyar Yeleussinov made his UK debut, and judging by the crowd alone this won’t be the only time he appears in London.
A breezy start for the Kazakh saw him pick off Zoltan Szabo with no problem, occasionally landing some big shots. The superb left possessed by Yeleussinov got through with relative ease as he dodged punches coming back from a wild Szabo.
The Kazakh put his foot to the floor in the third round, landing thunderous uppercuts followed by right hooks.
Effective use of the jab by Yelleusinnov in the fourth round extended his points gap and allowed him to move into position and land that left hand.
Spectacular work from Yelleusinnov continued in round five as he threw a random uppercut to drop his opponent’s guard – once again to land a straight left.
Yelleusinnov made easy work of Szabo in the last three minutes to coasts to a 60-54 points win.
Using his height and reach advantage, Felix Cash kept Francis Tchoffo at bay with his jab.
A couple of lead hooks allowed Cash to get himself in the position he wants to be in the second as Tchoffo swung wildly with Cash’s corner urges him to keep moving.
Cash lands with a straight right hand wobbling Tchoffo in the third, and in the fourth lands a nice uppercut on the inside. A 1-2 also broke through the guard of Tchoffo and Cash continued to repeat it, cruising into the fifth session.
Both started taking hard shots, but it was Cash who started to dance around his opponent – landing a cracking right hand to the temple.
Round six and Cash began dominating despite his opponent still being lively. The classier work always came from Cash and he managed to drop Tchoffo close to the end of the round. Tchoffo was saved by the bell but on his way to a comprehensive defeat.
With his solid and repetitive jab on display again, Cash kept away from more wild swings by Tchoffo. The gum shield flew out after a left hook followed by a right and Tchoffo clearly tired in the last round as he continued to lash out, tripping himself twice. #
A class performance from Cash as he takes it on points 80-71.
