This past Sunday in Moscow fight fans saw unbeaten Kazakh hopeful Aidos Yerbossynuly (10-0, 8) [Айдос Ербосынулы] face off with Belgian Super Middleweight champion Ilias Achergui (12-4-1, 6) in a bout for the newly created WBO Global title.
The bout began with Yerbossynuly looking to box behind his jab, pressing the shorter Belgian fighter backwards with calculated boxing. That worked well for the Kazakh who seemed to be in total control before being dropped by a left hook in round 4, earning the Belgian fighter a 10-8 round.
Sadly for the Belgian his highlight moment was just a brief moment of success and he would retire in his corner at the end of the round, giving Yerbossybuly the win by TKO, and the newly created title.

Yesterday we reported that Nursultan Zhangabayev (5-0, 4) [Жанабаев Нурсултан] would be back in the ring on December 23rd in Moscow to take on Filipino tough guy Arnel Tinampay (25-22-1, 11) in a bout for a WBC Asia title. Today we saw more details of that card emerge, with several more Kazakh fighters being added to the show.
One of those fighters is Aidos Yerbossynuly (9-0, 7) [Айдос Ербосынулы], who will be fighting for some minor WBO title. The unbeaten Yerbossynuly will be facing off with Belgian Super Middleweight champion Ilias Achergui (12-3-1, 6). Our source reports this will be for the WBO "Global" Super Middleweight title, and so the winner should be able to find themselves on the verge of a WBO world ranking.
The 27 year old Yerbossynuly began his career in October 2015 and fought his first couple of bouts in Ukraine. Since then he has fought in Kazakhstan and and the US whilst stepping up his level of competition. Archergui on the other hand is a 25 year old, who debuted on April 4th 2015 and will be fighting outside of Belgium for just the second time in his career. Sadly his competition so far has been terrible and it's hard to know just what he's bringing to the table to battle against the Kazakh.
Another bout set for this card with see Kyrgyzstan born Kazakh Ali Baloyev (7-0, 6) [Балоев Али] take on Ecuadorian Jean Carlos Mina (6-1, 2) in a well matched bout on paper. From what we understand this bout will be fought at Heavyweight, though both are more natural Cruiserweights. The Kazakh is a 25 year old who has been a professional for less than 2 years but has already had fights in Poland, USA, Kazakhstan and Russia, picking up international experience very early in his career. Mina on the other hand will be fighting for the first time away from Ecuador, having made his debut in the capital Quito back in August 2016. His only loss came to 2012 Olympian Ytalo Perera.
Also announced for this show is debutant Konstantin Brusensky (0-0) [Константин Брусенский], who will be fighting at Lightweight. His opponent however has not yet been announced though will be shortly.
Earlier today in Kazakhstan fans saw talented Aidos Yerbossynuly (9-0, 7) [Айдос Ербосынулы] record his latest win, as he out pointed Belorussian veteran opponent Aliaksandr Sushchyts (22-5-1, 12) over 10 rounds.
The talented Yerbossynuly, who was defending a regional title, took the decision with scores of 100:90, 100:91 and 99:91.
The 26 year old Super Middleweight was fighting for the second time this year, following a quick blow out win over Ismat Eynullayev in July, and this was actually the first time he had gone beyond 6 rounds. The step up in class was a good chance for him to test his stamina and he certainly answered a number of questions about his gas tank and about his potential to go far in the sport.
For Sushchyts the contest was his 4th decision loss and despite the set back he did prove that his opening round loss to Anvi Yildirim last year wasn't a sign that he was shot, instead he is still durable and a good test for prospects, like Yerbossynuly.

Earlier today fight fans in Astana, Kazakhstan, had plenty to celebrate as a number of Kazakh fighters picked up wins, with some really shining in impressive fashion, and other being forced to work hard for victory in an interesting card
The card was shown, in part, on Fite.TV, who broadcast the show in English on a very affordable PPV model. The Fite.TV portion of the show featured 5 bouts in total.
The first of those was a show case for Nursultan Zhanabayev (3-0, 2), as he stopped Brazilian Alex Sandro Duarte (13-2-1, 10) in side a round. The Brazilian was down within seconds, and was bullied and beaten until the bout stopped.
The second bout was also a mismatch as Ruslan Myrsatayev (4-0, 4) battered the under-sized Andres Matias (5-1, 5) into submission. The visitor showed little in terms of out put but had little quit in him, until finally being worn down but the pitbull like Myrsatayev in round 4.
Heart was the order of the day and that was proven when Zhanibek Alimkhanuly (2-0, 1) spent 6 rounds using Gilberto Pereira dos Santos (14-6, 10) as a human punch bag. dos Santos showed his toughness and refused to ever go down, but was out boxed, out moved, out punched and out-everything but the former amateur standout, who tried everything to get the stoppage.
In an entertaining scrap Zhankosh Turarov (22-0, 15) over-came Argentinian puncher Bruno Leonardo Romay (21-5, 18) in a fun fight, but one thta seemed to show that Turarov was a long, long way from being the next star of Kazakh boxing. The unbeaten fighter showed touches of genius, but then followed those up by dropping his hands, eating shots he should have avoided and failing to build on his better moments. It was a clear win, with all 3 judges scoring it 97-93, but it could, and perhaps should, have been a shut out.
In the main event Kanat Islam (25-0, 20) did a demolision job on the gutsy and insanely tough Brandon Cook (18-1, 11), who was finally saved by the referee in round 9. Cook had been dropped in the opening round, as well as rounds 5 and 8, he had suffered nasty facial swelling from early in the contest and had taken a beating until the eventual stoppage, having proven himself as an incredibly tough man, but one who lacked the fire power to get Islam's respect.
Away from the Fite.TV broadcast were wins for Ali Akhmedov (9-0, 7), Aidos Yerbossynuly (7-0, 6), Meiirim Nursultanov (4-0, 3) and Dimash Niyazov (12-0-3, 5), with only Niyazov being taken the distance.
