Oleksandr Gvozdyk: New WBC 'Interim' Light-Heavyweight Champion

By Aaron Cooper

By

Oleksandr Gvozdyk is the new WBC 'Interim' Light-Heavyweight Champion. The London Olympian won a unanimous decision over a game, but ultimately outmatched Medhi Amar.

The three scoring judges awarded Gvozdyk the bout, returning scores of 117-111, 116-112 & 118-110 respectively. The champion will of course now be in line to contest the winner of the Adonis Stevenson/Badou Jack fight, which is due to take place in May.

Gvozdyk was the busier of the two men, tallying nearly one thousand punches. However, Amar must be commended for his durability. Gvozdyk had previously stopped twelve of his fourteen prior opponents. 

Both men looked to establish their own jabs in the early rounds. It wasn't really until the fourth that Gvozdyk began to let his hands go more freely. The new champion used his jab almost as a data collection tool. He would throw it out without any real sting, but it forced Amar onto the back foot. When Amar did react to it, Gvozdyk was able to react that much faster and make him pay. It's a style that is becoming very synonymous with Eastern European fighters and Vasyl Lomachenko in particular. 

That is not to say that Amar did not have any success in the fight with a few punches in the later rounds of the fight which did seem to trouble Gvozdyk momentarily.

Ultimately, Gvozdyk was the better man on the night and evidently the more proficient technician. Bigger fights await the Ukranian, should he win then Eastern Europe will firmly have a stranglehold on the Light-Heavyweight division
