Basin and Abramov Win

Nikita Basin and Artur Abramov each won by way of first round stoppage on a card in Holon, Israel on January 25. Basin won by TKO with thirty seconds remaining in the opening round against Mykhaylo Ihnatiuk.

Basin is now 4-0 with 4 KOs. Ihnatiuk, a Ukrainian who had a six-pound weight advantage heading into the fight, is winless in seven tries. He has been stopped in each of his fights, including against Nur Rabia last October.

Abramov, a 24 year old from Jerusalem, made his debut that night against Alaa Abu Naji. Both fighters came in over the cruiserweight limit of 200 pounds. Abramov landed a couple of overhand rights to score the knockout after two minutes and 45 seconds of action. Naji, a 23 year old from Nazareth was also making his debut.
