Following on from the success of   local legend Andrey Kotelnik’s September  world title defence in front of   a home audience, Lviv hosted another  top-drawer boxing occasion October   23 with Lviv fighter Viktor Plotnikov  taking the little-known GBU (Global   Boxing Union) world welterweight  belt from Venezuela’s Dervin Medina.  Organised by Ukraine’s National  boxing League, the main event was  over almost as soon as it had begun,  with Plotikov delighting the partisan  Lviv crowd with a series of  devastating  assaults that left the Venuzeulan  repeatedly on the canvas and gave the  Polish referee no choice but to end  the fight inside the first round. Expect  plenty more boxing action this winter  as fight fever grips the city.
