New Unified Champion: Alimkhanuly Takes Second Middleweight Title

Location: Rosenberg, USA

Janibek Alimkhanuly TKO 6 Vincenzo Gualtieri

The main event in Rosenberg, USA, featured a middleweight unification bout. WBO champion Janibek Alimkhanuly faced IBF champion Vincenzo Gualtieri.

Gualtieri deserves credit for taking on the reigning champion in his first title defense. However, his opponent quickly proved why he was considered the favorite. Alimkhanuly, who usually plays a supporting role, took the initiative right from the start. He attacked from the opening seconds, and after a few rounds, he had the read on his opponent's style, increasingly landing heavy shots.

In the sixth round, after a prolonged assault, the referee stopped the fight.

Janibek Alimkhanuly is now the WBO and IBF champion in this weight category. The WBC title in this division belongs to Jermall Charlo, and the WBA title is held by Erislandy Lara.
