UrBC, Yekaterinburg, May 24, 2016. Ural Vagon Zavod Scientific & Production Corporation sponsored the heavyweight (under 90.71 kg) boxing match between the 36-year-old Russian, WBA boxing champion Denis Lebedev and the 32-year-old Argentinean, IBF champion Victor Ramirez.

The fight took place in Moscow’s Megasport Palace on May 21. Lebedev, the winner, unified both the WBA and the IBF champion belts through a knockout as soon as the second round. This is the fourth time in a row Lebedev has won a champion’s belt, and the first time for the boxer to win two champion titles at once.

The fight, however, started out rather cautiously, with Ramirez trying to engage Lebedev in full-fledged fighting and openly attacking his rival, while Lebedev moved around a lot and put more precision in his serves.
