Vyacheslav Shabranskyy is ready to make his name in the light
Shabranskyy, who trains under Manny Robles at The Rock in Carson, roared to a third-round stoppage over Oscar Riojas, Friday night the latest edition of Golden Boy Promotions’ LA Fight Club at The Belasco Theater.
After a patient beginning, Shabranskyy swung the momentum on a powerful straight right hand that sent Riojas to the canvas.
Riojas beat the 10-count, but as soon as the fight restarted, Shabranskyy landed another right hand, leading to the stoppage at 1:43 of the third round.
“The first round, I wanted to see what he was doing and what his style was,” Shabranskyy said. “After the first round, I came back to the corner and they gave me help with what I needed to do in second and third round.”
Shabranskyy finally figured out Riojas’ awkward style and improved his record to 17-0.
Robles agreed that now is the time for Shabranskyy to track down one of the bigger names in the division.
“I would like to see him in a big fight, definitely, against a big name,” Robles said. “He got the job done tonight, not to take anything away from the opponent, he (Shabranskyy) did what he was supposed to do, but I definitely do feel that he’s ready for something much, much bigger.
“It doesn’t necessarily have to be a world title. It can be a title eliminator, just against someone in the Top 10. Something people want to see.”
