Yesterday in Russia fight fans saw local favourite Denis Lebedev pick up an easy win over Hinzi Altunkaya. On the same card was Russian based Kyrgyzstan fighter Akzhol Sulaimanbek Uulu (12-0, 6), who picked up his 12th straight victory.
The unbeaten 27 year old was facing off with 37 year old Colombian veteran Aristides Perez (31-12-2, 17), being stopped in 4 rounds.
Uulu, defending his WBA Asia Super Featherweight title for the first time, completely dominate the bout, using his southpaw jab excellently early on before breaking down Perez with intense pressure and work rate. About a minute into round 4 the referee stepped in, and stopped Perez, who looked completely out of his depth.
Although a long way from a world title fight the man from Kyrgyzstan is edging up the rankings and if he continues to look as good as he did against Perez he will start to march up the rankings and get himself bigger and better fights.
