The results of the Boxing year for Ukrainians: from the incredible victories to painful lesions

2019 was full of different Boxing events. The Ukrainians played a major role in the world of fisticuffs. Our compatriots alternate failure and victory. Consider for whom the 2019 was successful, and for whom not.

Vasyl Lomachenko

The best of our chieftains, this year had two fights. In April, just destroyed mandatory Challenger Anthony Kroll.

And in August won another Briton, winner of the Olympic games – Luke Campbell. During the year the Basil added to his collection, the WBC and came close to its global goal of becoming undisputed world champion.

Overall, 2019 may bring itself into an asset, while something incredible he did not commit.

Oleksandr Usyk

Our new champion of the world was not active during the year. Prevented the injury of your biceps. Only one match this fall against not the strongest opponents of the American Chazz Witherspoon. And he agreed to go into battle in less than a week, was not in the best physical shape.

However, as Lomachenko, next year the Mustache is great hope. With high probability, he will be in a world title fight against Anthony Joshua. And in March exactly orbexilum with someone from top 10: Derek Cooroy or Joseph Parker, maybe this will be a title fight.

Artem S.

Champion WBA in the weight category up to 51 kilograms in the last 12 months had only one title defense. 15 June in the 10th round knockout over Thai Sarasota Thornham. It seems that victory is all good, but I want something more.

At the end of the year it was announced that the next fight the boxer will be held in Kiev on 8 February 2020. Opponent will be 24-year-old Venezuelan Heber Perez.

Alexander Gvozdik

Carnations became the main loser of the Boxing of the year. First Dodo Ngumbu in February refused to continue the fight that was just beginning to tie. From that battle, don’t remember almost anything.

And then all of October in an equal fight-unification with the Russian Beterbiev Arthur Alexander lost his championship belt. Very disappointing is that in that match on the cards 2 out of 3 judges Alexander won.

Now Carnations continues to be at the top of different ratings. Therefore, it is likely that he will soon get a new chance at qualifying, or immediately to the championship fight.

Sergey Derevyanchenko

Conducted 2 combat. In the first competitive opposition is not without problems, but won Turk Jack Kulka. This victory allowed him to become the mandatory Challenger for the WBO belt. On 21 October, he fought for the belt with Kazakhstan, one of the titans of modern profiboxing Gennady Golovkin. The fight was very spectacular, smooth, with intrigue to the very end. Unfortunately, in the first round Sergiy has been knocked down, that had a great influence on the final result.

Sergei this year showed incredible Boxing, better, and impossible to imagine, fought on level with one of the best in the world. And get the coveted title of champion he did not manage.

Denis Berinchyk

Silver medalist of the 2012 Olympics in London has risen to 4th in the WBO rankings. This rise is a result of two victories, which won Dennis over two middle: Japanese Nikitas Arakawa and Mexican Moreno Lopez. Both were full dvenadtsatiraundovom distance, the Ukrainians had not given them any round.

In this scenario, Berinchyk is more likely to get in next year right to go to the championship match.

Viktor Postol

Ex-world champion in the light Welterweight division for 2019 fought once. Opponent was the Frenchman Mohamed Mimoun. A 10-round fight ended in victory for the Postol with the unanimous decision of the judges.

March 2, 2020 Victor will compete for the WBC and WBO belts with their owner, the invincible American Jose Carlos Ramirez.

Maxim Bursak, Ivan Redkach

Among biscotasi Ukrainian boxers in the past year stood out Maxim Bursak and Ivan Redkach.

Bursak in early December, fought with David Lemieux, who was a former world champion. Twice sent a big opponent to the canvas of the ring, once fell himself. The status of the host and the favorite still inclined judges on the canadian side, which gave him the victory via split decision.

About Redkach, he probably had the best year in his career. Knocked out strong boxers Tyrone Harris and Davon Alexander in the first and sixth round respectively. Interestingly, Ivan started his career at lightweight, and the last fight took place at Welterweight. Perhaps this will be a key factor in the career of Ukrainian. I hope that he will continue his winning streak in the future. Next fight he will hold on January 25, against star Dani Garcia.

Vladislav Sirenko, Alexander walk-UPS and Sergey Bogachuk

In 2019 is rapidly gaining momentum Ukrainian avenues. Stood out heavyweights Vladislav Sirenko and Alexander walk-UPS, even more confident, one by one opponents bashed Middleweight from Vinnitsa Sergey Bogachuk.

Our promising heavyweight synchronously passed on three opponents. The average level of opposition was a bit higher in Sirenko, however walk-UPS outboxed Kevin Johnson, who once came out in one ring with Vitali Klitschko. Waiting for next year more serious opponents for these guys.

Sergey Bogachuk for the year has had five fights, all wins, all by knockout, never lost a round. Perhaps now is the best Ukrainian prospect in professional Boxing. There is great hope that in the near future it will occupy the high positions in world Boxing.

Alexander Khizhnyak and Victor Vykhryst

In addition to professional boxers, made us happy with their victories and our fans. Alexander Khizhnyak and Victor Vykhryst summer win at the European games in Minsk. Close to their success was also Mykola butsenko, however, it did its job judge.

Ukraine may hold great hope for Olympic boxers in Tokyo. And after games waiting for their debut in the professional ring.
