Avtandil Khurtsidze - World IBO Middleweight Boxing Champion!

March 13, 2011, Tue, Georgia, Tbilisi Sport Palace

Avtandil Khurtsidze "Tornado"  (23-2-2, 13) defeated Mariusz Sendrovski (21-3-2, 8) and won the vacant world IBO middleweight champion title! 

Khurtsidze traditionally worked aggressively leading the fight, while Sendrovski tried to counterattack. From time to time Sendrovski tactics was successful and by the end of the fifth round he managed briefly to take the initiative. However, in general, constant pressure from Khurtsidze determined the outcome of the fight, and ultimately reflected in the judges final decision.
