Alexei Ribchev put on one of the best performances of his career Saturday night (9.10) at the Dunav Hall in his hometown of Rousse, Bulgaria to successfully defend his Universal Boxing Organization™ International Middleweight title with a clear unanimous decision over hard-headed Uruguayan Ruben Silva Diaz.


After ten entertaining, but somewhat one-sided rounds, the judges Yordan Ezekiev, Daniel Krumov and Emil Todorov all scored the bout 100 – 90 in favor of Ribchev, who improved his professional record to 11-3-1 (3). Silva Diaz, who has been in with some of the best in the world, is now 37-22-4 (20).

The 34-year-old Diaz was game throughout, but seemed to be tiring already from the fourth round. At that point Ribchev pretty much had things his own way, while Diaz kept trying with little success. The Bulgarian used his boxing skills well, and at times found his mark at will with the jab.

From the midway point of the fight it was clear that Diaz would need a knockout to bring the UBO title back to Uruguay, and he never really got close to hurting Ribchev. In the later rounds it was just a matter of how the local man would win, and if he would be able to finish things inside the distance.

A sold-out Dunav Hall created an electric atmosphere as the spectators enjoyed their hero’s impressive performance. Despite the superiority of Ribchev, it was a good fight between two boxers who wanted to entertain.

Diaz gave it one last go in the final minute, but Ribchev boxed cleverly from a distance and cruised through the final seconds, knowing he had the fight won.

Alexeev Boxing Promotions put on a great night of boxing, and some of Bulgarias biggest sporting heroes were ringside to see Ribchev remain champion after his first title defense. He is scheduled to make an unusual quick return to the ring on September 18 in a non-title fight when promoter Vasko Vasilev has another show in Razgrad, Bulgaria.
