BFC 56: Zuev Advances in Super 8 Tournament
Two-time Kunlun Fight title winner Dzianis Zuev advanced into the semifinal round of the BFC Super 8 Tournament at Thursday’ nights Belarusian Fighting Championship 56 event in Minsk.
The rugged Zuev defeated Dmitriy Filonchik on points in their quarterfinal match, scoring two eight counts on his fellow Belarusian to secure the win.
Zuev applied pressure from the get go on Filonchik, who looked to catch him coming forward or move.
In the second, Zuev punches did enough damage to score two eight counts. Filonchik battled until the final bell but Zuev’s pressure and power were too much.
Promotion representative and former K-1 Champion Chingiz Allazov congratulated Zuev in the ring after the match.
Maxim Spodarenko defeated Serhii Poliuha on points in the co-main event. Full results below.
