Yesterday in Ekateringburg, Russia we had the second set of bouts from Season 2 of the World Boxing Super Series (WBSS). On that card fans also got the chance to see Kazakh prospect Stanislav Kalitskiy (6-0, 3) [Станислав Калицкий] score his best win to date, as he took a very notable step up in class.
The unbeaten Kazakh was up against the well travelled Filipino Jestoni Autida (11-10, 5) and took a unanimous decision over the 27 year old from the Philippines.
The 21 year old Kalitskiy only made his debut in September 2017 but is being kept busy and has now gone 22 rounds as a professional whilst fighting in. Yesterday's bout was a clear step up in class but to have a win over Autida at this stage is pretty impressive.
Sadly for the Filipino , who upset Ratchasak KKP in 2015, this is his third straight loss and 7th defeat in 9 bouts. The problem for Autida is that he really has no right fighting at 130lbs, like he did yesterday. If he can drop a few divisions and fight at a better weight there is a chance he can bounce back and score some wins on the regional scene.
