Ex-champ Williams beat travelerman, Cruz and Gogokhia again tried to determine the winner


ArmoryMinneapolis, USA. Former world champion American Julian Williams (28-3-1, 16 KOs) in the light middleweight limit (up to 69.9 kg) closed his streak without victories, which had been dragging on since 2019 – effortlessly passed the Argentine journiman
Rolando Mansiyu (18-12-1, 8 KOs).

One-sided duel went the whole distance. There were no knockdowns, but in the 5th round the referee penalized the underdog, as he constantly lost his mouth guard.

Judges score: 80-71, 79-72 and 79-72.

Williams UD 8.

In a rematch in the super lightweight limit (up to 63.5 kg), an American
Kent Cruz (16-0-2, 10 KOs) and Georgian Enrico Gogokhia (13-0-1, 8 KOs) failed to determine the winner. In February, they also brought the fight to a draw, but then the American visited the canvas twice.

The fight was very similar to the first fight. Hard, but not very effective pressure from Gogokhia against passive, but more effective counter-punching from Cruz.

Judges decision: 76-76, 76-76 and 78-74 (Gogokhia).

Draw MD 8.

Prize-winner of world champions and participant of the Olympic Games-2020 Kazakh welterweight prospect (up to 66.7 kg)
Ablaykhan Zhusupov (3-0, 2 KOs) delayed the American
Demarcus Leighton (8-4-1, 5 KOs).

Zhusupov TKO 2.
