Martin Bakole scored a victory over Sergey Kuzmin at the SSE Arena in Wembley and won the WBC international heavyweight belt.
The Congolese fighter who lives in Scotland neutralized Kuzmin’s aggression with his precise thrust when he made a unanimous decision with 98-92, 97-93 and 96-94.
Bakole quickly found his reach in the opening round when he discharged a powerful right hand and then fired crisp body shots.
A dull left hook worried Kuzmin in the second and sparked a fiery exchange, and Bakole broke off his probing thrust as the pace dropped in the third.
But Kuzmin showed his threat at close range in the fourth, ramming his right hand and catching Bakole with a left hook in the fifth.
Bakole sensed the danger and drove well from a distance on the sixth lap. In the seventh round he speared Kuzmin with his left hands.
Kuzmin showed more urgency in the eighth when he delivered a noticeable uppercut, but Bakole held him in check with a push in the ninth.
In the 10. and last lap, Kuzmin immediately uncorked a right hand despite not finding a final blow, and Bakole remained competing for a big fight.
In the early evening, Kieron Conway sat Macaulay McGowan on the floor as he sealed a unanimous decision win with 100-90, 100-89 and 100-89.
The 24-year-old super welterweight put in a dominant performance, sending McGowan onto the canvas with a series of shots in round eight to increase his profit margin.
