Meryasev and Tikhonov score wins in Saint Petersburg, Russia

Meryasev and Tikhonov score wins in Saint Petersburg, Russia

Andrey Meryasev won a hard fought wide points decision to retain his WBC Baltic Middleweight title against Bulgarian Alexander Ribchev. It was scored 100-90 (Artemiev, Russia), 100-91 (Tamm, Estonia) and an unacceptable wide 100-86 (Dubouvsky, Belarus) with no knockdowns. Fightnews scored it 99-91.
Vladimir Tikhonov stopped Mexican Uriel Cauich Frias when the visitor was unable to come out for round 5. Heads bumped in round 2 and Frias forehead was swelling so much that his corner wisely didnít let him come out for round 5. Until then it was a good even fight and Frias deserves a rematch.

Venue: Phoenix Club, Saint Petersburg, Russia
Promoter: Igor Shafer (Neva Glove)
