Two key AIBA Pro Boxing (APB) Cycle I Round 2 Light Welterweight (64 kg) matches took place on Sunday night in Mexico City, Mexico where Juan Pablo Romero (MEX) stopped Vyacheslav Kyslytsyn (UKR) in the main event.

Cheered warmly by his home supporters as he made his way to the ring wearing his traditional sombrero, Romero began the bout with serious intent when a series of left hooks pulverised both the head and body of his European opponent.

The WSB Season II Individual Champion spoke about his intent to negate Kyslytsyn’s strength before the fight, and did so in the first round by using rapid combination punching in successful fashion.

Kyslytsyn soaked up the pressure however, and began to march forward in the second frame with an excellent jab stemming the flow of punches from Romero.

A similar pattern occurred in round three when the excellent fundamentals of Kyslytsyn battled the entertaining style of his unorthodox Mexican rival.

As the middle stages of the contest began to materialise, the majority of spectators believed they were set for an eight round war, but Romero had other ideas and stopped the Ukrainian after another series of blistering shots.

The victory was greeted with much applause in the Plaza Condesa, and Romero can now celebrate his second consecutive APB victory and a move up the rankings as a result.

In the second Light Welterweight match to feature in Mexico, Chabane Fehim (FRA) widely outpointed Yoelvis Hernandez (VEN) in a mesmerising bout.

Match Results:

  • Yoelvis HERNANDEZ (VEN) vs Chabane FEHIM (FRA) W.P. (72:80/74:78/73:79)
  • Juan Pablo ROMERO (MEX) TKO R5 vs Vyacheslav KYSLYTSYN (UKR)
