HEAVYWEIGHT – Title vacant

For the vacant WBC International Heavyweight Gold crown  –  Moscow (Russia)  –

Boxing promotional company World of Boxing staged a show at the famous Luzhniki Arena in Moscow on Monday November 27th with the main event being the WBC International Heavyweight Championship.   The vacant crown was at stake in a much anticipated bout between hard-hitting Amir Mansour (23-2, 16 KO) and undefeated Sergey Kuzmin (11-0, 8 KO).

Unfortunately the Championships ended into the third round when the two fighters collided head-to-head.   Deep cuts were produced one over the forehead of Kuzmin and another over Mansour’s right eyebrow.   After consulting with ringside physician Vladimir Kurdhev, International referee Massimo Barrovecchio ruled the bout off .   Time was  2:45 round three.   The result was announced as a technical draw in agreement with our rules.   The title remains vacant.

At the official weigh-in, Kuzmin scaled Kgs. 109.6 (241.6 lbs), while Mansour was something lighter at Kgs 101.85 (224.5 lbs).    More to come*
