Thomas Faure W12 Beka Mukhulishvili ... In Chateauroux, France, local fan favorite Thomas Faure defeated Beka Mukhulishvili of the Republi of Georgia in a light heavyweight contest. Faure (age 29) worked well with his jab throughout, but never managed to take full control of the fight, as Mukhulishvili (age 22) was effective in countering with combinations to body and head. Many rounds were closely contested and could have gone either way. After ten entertaining but scrappy rounds, the judges scored the fight 98-93, 96-94 and 97-93, all for Faure who improved his record to 16-4. Mukhulishvili drops to 6-4.
Francis Tchoffo W10Jemal Shalamberidze... On the same night in Pessac, France, middleweight Francis Tchoffo (19-15-1) had all he could handle with another Georgian, Jemal Shalamberidze (8-5-1), as they fought to a draw. The Cameroon-born Tchoffo came forward all night, but often struggled to cut the ring off well enough to catch the elusive Shalamberidze, who boxed very well and had his fair share of success countering from a southpaw stance. Broadcast live by France 3 Aquitaine, the judges could not split them in the end, with scores of 115-114 for Tchoffo, 115-113 for Shalamberidze and 14-114. source for all results: wbf press release
