SUMMARY: Astana, Kazakhstan: Super Middle: Aidos Yerbossynuly (15-0) W TKO 3 Issah Samir (19-1).
Kazakh Yerbossynuly stopped Issah Samir in a muddled ending.
Yerbossynuly was in the switch from the start and over the first two rounds was landing strong rights to the head and left hooks to the body.
Samir is really only a middleweight and was slow carrying 7 ½lbs more than in his last fight but showed some fire at times.
In the third after Yerbossynuly had scored with some heavy punches, Samir tried to hold.
Yerbossynuly swung him round and into the rope. With Samir’s side on to him, Yerbossynuly reached around and connected with left hooks to the body and a right to the head. As Samir dropped to his haunches Yerbossynuly landed a right to the head.
Samir got up and complained about the punches then ignored the referee stalking up and down beside the ropes whilst the referee counted to eight and with Samir still refusing to acknowledge the count the referee waived the fight over.
A confusing ending but Yerbossynuly was on his way to a win. He retains a whole slew of titles in the WBC Asian, WBA International, and WBO Global. First fight outside Ghana and first fight for 16.
Abraham Tabul also suffered his 4th defeat in his last 5 fights as he lost to Kazakhstan’s Semenov who had only one career fight before Wednesday night.
Kwahu Tyson made it three losses out of three for Ghanaian boxers in Kazakhstan this past Wednesday after falling to 22-year-old Bek Nurmaganbet.
