Earlier today in Australia Filipino Czar Amonsot (24-3-3, 14) claimed the PABA Light Welterweight title as he stopped Australian Steven Wills (17-2-2, 9) in the 3rd round of a scheduled 12 round battle. This was the second stoppage loss of Wills's career having previously been stopped by former world title contender Kaizer Mabuza.
Hopefully the victory for Amonsot will help open up a world title opportunity, though unfortunately with the Light Welterweight division being a tough one it's unlikely Amonsot will manage to ever claim a genuine world title.
Unfortunately it wasn't all good news for Asian fighters in Australia as Thailand's Anuntachai Sor Por Lor Krungthep (5-6, 3) was out pointed by Ibrahim Balla (3-0, 2) and Russian Dominic Shchukin (1-2-1, 1) was stopped in the second round Kye MacKenzie (5-0, 3),
There was also a card in Vladikavkaz, Russia. The main event here saw the promising Murat Gassiev (13-0, 9) defeating the totally out classed Roman Mirzoev (2-8, 1) who was retired after round 3.
As well as the Gassiev/Mirzoev bout there was also a victory for the the unbeaten Aslanbek Kozaev (25-0-1, 7) who out pointed Georgian journeyman Giorgi Ungiadze (22-16, 10) via a 6 round decision and debutant Leri Tedeev (1-0) took a decision over the previously unbeaten Shavlego Tsamalaidze (3-0-4, 2).
In Switzerland the Japanese born Aniya Seki (23-2-2, 1) successfully defended her WBC Silver female Super Flyweight title for the first time. The 34 year old, currently based in Berne, was made to work very hard for her victory however as Liliana Martinez (11-13, 6) gave her a stiffer than expected test.
