The APB Middleweights return to Moscow with four outstanding matches

26 July 2015 News

aa-1798x900The Middleweight (75 kg) division of AIBA Pro Boxing (APB) will make their eagerly awaited return to the competition on Sunday night, as they compete in four crucial Cycle I Round 1 matches.

Moscow, Russia will host the action, while fans around the world can watch live and free from 18:00 (GMT +3) at

Following the provisional suspension of APB Middleweight Champion Adem Kilicci, the Title Bout for the Middleweight weight class has been cancelled.

This means that on Sunday night, the four top tier boxers will compete to progress towards Cycle 1 Round 2 bout for this division in September.

Number one ranked Middleweight Artem Chebotarev (RUS) will compete in the main event in Moscow against Bogdan Juratoni (ROU).

2010 European Champion Chebotarev is an extremely gifted boxer who prefers to fight from range, while his quick reflexes and ferocious attacks allow him to compete equally well on the front or back foot.

2011 AIBA World Championships bronze medalist Juratoni is a mentally tough boxer who will not allow the away crowd in Moscow to change his emotions or tactics throughout the contest.


The Romanian has won two of his last three matches in this competition, and will be keen to make it a hat-trick in this key match.

Either Chebotarev or Juratoni will meet the winner of Michel Tavares (FRA) vs Dmytro Mytrofanov (UKR) in Cycle I Round 2.

French southpaw Tavares competed in 21 matches of the World Series of Boxing, and looked excellent in his last APB match against Juratoni.

Mytrofanov also has plenty of WSB experience, and the 2013 Summer Universiade gold medalist loves to attack his opponents with fierce body shots.

With all four matches on the night taking place over eight grueling rounds, the winner of each contest could well be the man who has worked the hardest on his stamina.

Two further Middleweight matches will feature in Moscow, as Nickson Abaka (KEN) fights Marlo Delgado (ECU) while Hosam Abdin (EGY) battles Xhek Paskali (GER).
