    Konstantin Ponomarev is fighting on the Top Rank card in Omaha tonight.

    He's just age 21 and already has a 23-0 record.

    Ponomarev scored a ten round unanimous decision over tough veteran Cosme “Chino” Rivera who has been in with many familiar names.

    He's now
    25-0.

    Ponomarev is a kid on the rise. The Russian out-boxed his opponent from the first to last bell, while using very good footwork, jabs ,combinations and body shots.

    Konstantin controlled distance, showing good timing and clearly has matured in terms of avoiding unnecessary shots. By the time the fight was over,
    Zewski's face was battered. Ponomarev was relatively clean, and looked as if he had just finished a rousing sparring session. I like him!

    Ponomarev is fighting off TV on a Top Rank card on Friday Nov 20. It looks like this talented young boxer has made the career-ruining mistake of signing with Top Rank.

    He still has no opponent scheduled, five days from the fight.

    Ponomarev won a hard-fought MD.

    Looks like Ponomarev will next fight undefeated Brad Solomon on the Pacquiao-Bradley card.

    Last night, Ponomarev deserved to win by wide decision, yet in the official result he won by SD.

    He lost today, to a top Russian prospect.

    Another fighter ruined by Top Rank.

    He should have been in big fights after beating Zewski, but Arum kept him in low-pay meaningless matchups.
