Russian Pavel Silyagin won the WBC Silver middleweight title defeating Uzbek Azizbek Abdugofurov by unanimous decision in an entertaining bout on Saturday in the co-feature of the Top Rank Boxing card headlined by Artur Beterbiev vs. Deines at Megasport Arena in Moscow.
Lanky Silyagin ably used his longer reach and deftly switched between right-handed and southpaw stances, delivering punches from all angles against a slower Abdugofurov.
It was a tough fight and each bloodied the other`s nose. But it was Pavel who effectively applied the more intelligently sustained pressure.
The judges had it 120-108, 119-109 and 119-109 for the dominant Silyagin (7-0, 4 KOs), 27, of Russia, who is known as “The Stylish Assassin.”
