The modern tradition of fight night boxing extravaganzas in Lviv which was started in 2008 by local hero Andrey Kotelnik continued last month when Lviv pugilist Viktor Plotnikov defeated Uzbek contender Sherzodbek Alimdzhanov to claim the European EBA welterweight title. Plotnikov (21-1, 10 KOs), who fights out of the K2 East Promotion fight stable, won the fight with a twelfth-round stoppage of his Central Asian adversary, making this the latest in a series of successful homecomings for the city’s top boxing talent. Lviv’s high society has taken a shine to the glamour of live boxing over the past year, so fans of the sport can expect plenty more fight nights in the coming months.
