Adygezalov, a 23-year-old undefeated Southpaw
from Saint Petersburg, defeated Amos Mwamakula
in round five, when referee Mugwanya Mark
Jackson promptly disqualified the Tanzanian for
an outrageous intentional head-but.
that point Adygezalov had controlled his
opponent, frustrating him from his unorthodox
stance and landing hard shots from a distance
and at close range. After four rounds of getting
puzzled, the aggressive Mwamakula turned to
dirty tactics and was rightly thrown out.
unsatisfactory ending should not take away from
a wonderful performance by Adygezalov, who did
everything he could to entertain the sizable
crowd in his adopted African home-base.
