Dalakian, Yegorov and Yefimovych defended their WBA Continental Titles in Ukraine.

The Parkovy Convention Center in Kiev, Ukraine, was the setting for a professional boxing card that had nine bouts, including three for World Boxing Association Continental Titles, that stayed in the hands of local Artem Dalakian, Oleksandr Yegorov and Oleg Yofimovych.

Dalakian (15-0,11KO) dispatched Mexican Luis Manuel Macías (9-5-2, 3KO) in the sixth round and defended his Flyweight Title for the fourth time after winning it in July 2015, against Angel Moreno.

In the case of Yegorov (18-1-1, 9KO) he produced a third round knockout against the Argentinean Lucas Rafael Báez (30-16-4, 15 KO) which was his second successful defense of the body’s Super Bantamweight Belt. Báez suffered a delicate cut in the eye because of an impact from the Ukrainian and could not continue in the fight.

During the bout, Yefimovych (29-2-1, 16 KO) finished off Belgian Urbano Giuliani (9-2, 2KO) in the seventh round and retained his Featherweight crown for the fourth time.

The Ukrainian audience once again showed their support for professional boxing and the World Boxing Association, whose titles were at stake during this great day.
