Shumenov stops Joppy Jr in inside six rounds
WBA/IBA Light Heavyweight Champion Beibut Shumenov, 11-1-0 (7), successfully defended his world titles for the second time, stopping former 3-time world champion William Joppy Jr, 39-6-2 (30), in the sixth round, tonight in front of a packed house at the Ice Mansion in Shymkent, Kazakhstan.
Joppy, 40 years old, replaced WBO champ Juergen Braehmer, who suddenly pulled out of this scheduled unification showdown against Shumenov on Monday.
Local Shumenov, 27 years old, now fighting out of Las Vegas, floored Joppy in the fifth round with a powerful right hand and seconds into the sixth round, fired a vicious left hook to Joppy’s body which resulted in him taking a knee and being counted out. Shumenov joined fellow world champion Lucian Bute and former superstar Felix Trinidad as the only fighters to ever stop the game and experienced Joppy.
In the co-feature, Uzbekistan native Ravshan Hudaynazarov, 14-0-0 (12), won the WBA Fedelatin Welterweight title by 10th-round technical knockout due to a deep cut over Jose Luis Cruz right eye. A devastating body puncher, the 26-year-old Hudaynazarov dropped “Chelin” Cruz, 41-8-2 (33), with a left hook to the liver late in the opening round, but his Mexican opponent proved to be as tough as advertised. Cruz had fought a draw with Carlos Baldomir and took Shane Mosley the full distance. The title was at stake only for Hudaynazarov because Cruz was overweight at 53.4-pounds.
On the advice of the ring doctor, the referee stopped the fight in the 10th round, but Hudaynazarov gained invaluable experience having never before fought more than six rounds. He won every round on the three judges’ scorecards through nine in a thoroughly convincing performance.
Former Kazakhstan National Amateur Champion Alexandr Zhuravskiy, fighting out of Las Vegas, kept his perfect pro record intact (10-0-0, 8 inside) by knocking out Ruben Galvan, 27-15-4-2 NC (10) in the sixth round to capture the WBA International Super-Lightweight Championship. Zhuravskiy methodically broke-down Galvan, who had been stopped only twice in 45 previous fights, flooring him with a left and then immediately jumping on him with a 1-2 combination that ended the fight. The title was at stake only for Zhuravskiy because Galvan was overweight at 144-pounds.
Unbeaten PABA interim Light-Heavyweight Gayrat Ahmedov, 16-0-1 (10), successfully defended that belt and added the WBA International crown to his collection when Tursunboy Absullakimov, 13-5-0 (3), was unable to answer the bell to start the fifth round.
Hudaynazarov, Zhuravfskiy and Ahmedov are all in the KZ Event Productions stable of fighters.
