This past Friday saw very little Heavyweight action though we did get two bouts in China.
The most significant of hose bouts saw Romanian giant Razvan Cojanu (11-1, 6) claim the WBO Asia Pacific Heavyweight title as he defeated Argentina's Manuel Alberto Pucheta (37-10, 30). Pucheta's team threw in the towel to save their man after he had been dropped and this is likely the end of his dreams of making a mark on the international scene. For Cojanu this is his 11th straight win and whilst no one will be talking about him as a future world beater it was the best win of his career so far.
The second Heavyweight bout on the card saw China's Xia Shunkai (2-0, 2) taking a very comfortable win over Indian debutant Harinder (0-1). Shunkai had size and height advantages and made things look easy against his totally mismatched foe.
