Situated in the politically torn country of Belarus, Al Siesta and his outfit, Siesta Boxing brings boxing fans the suitably titled Kold Wars, from the great city of Minsk.
A four-show boxing extravaganza, and all within one month! This being the second instalment of the series, the first collection of shows came through some serious hurdles to successfully host Kold Wars 1 between July 24th and August 4th during the height of the global pandemic.
It’s been a quick turn around for Siesta Boxing to bring us instalment number 2 of this ambitious series, with Al Siesta trying to pull off a Russia vs UK series to coincide with the ‘Cold Wars’ theme of this aptly titled event.
Battle 1 kicks off this Tuesday with the two leading fights giving us a real Russia vs UK feel to the 5 fight show.
World title hopeful, Andrey Sirotkin (18-1) takes on Kent’s Grant ‘Go Getter’ Dennis (15-2) over ten rounds at middleweight. Al Siesta claimed, “it’s going to be a great fight,” on paper it certainly has some real potential.
Reading’s Asinia ‘D’Ghost’ Byfield (14-3) is back for his second appearance in the series after linking up with Al Siesta.
Byfield came out defeated against Ismail Iliev ,coming narrowly close to stopping the Russian late in a points loss. Aleksei Evchenko (19-13-1) stands in the British man’s way of avoiding three straight defeats.
Hailing from Chelyabinsk, Russia, Evchenko beat Victor Plotnikov (33-8) in Kold Wars 1 and has also taken two undefeated records in his previous two fights.
Kazakh Daulet Daukenov (7-1) goes into a 50/50 10 round fight with Ukrainian, Nazri Rahimov (6-1).
Super-Middleweight David Rakhanaev debuts against Ivan Murashkin (5-6-1) of Belarus and starting the evening will be; Viachaslau Barysionak (3-0, 3KOs) of Belarus, making his second appearance on the series against fellow Belarusian, Andrei Staliarchuk.
