Shishkin outpoints Sierra in uneventful bout

Undefeated Russian super middleweight prospect Vladimir Shishkin defeated Ulises Sierra by unanimous decision Friday at WinnaVegas Casino & Resort in Sloan, Iowa.

Two judges scored the bout 99-91 and the third gave Shishkin every round. also scored the fight a shutout for the 28-year-old Shishkin.

Shishkin (10-0, 6 KO's), a Russia native who trains out of Detroit's Kronk Gym, dominated Sierra (15-1-2, 9 KO's) from the onset, who quite frankly, did not try very hard in there.

In the third round, Shishkin began to land more combinations to the head and the body. Sierra did not fire back and seemed content on staying behind a high guard, which became repetitive throughout the bout.

In the fifth round, Sierra momentarily woke up, stunning Shiskin with a beautiful combination that began with a left to the body and finished upstairs with a hook. Sierra, however, went back to not throwing punches.

Shishkin, who reportedly suffered an injury to his left biceps prior to the fight, cruised to the win behind a sporadic jab, and an opponent who appeared to be more interested in taking a nap at the hotel.

On the undercard, Uzbek lightweight Shohjahon Ergashev knocked out Adrian Estrella in the first round with a devastating left hand to the body. The official time of the stoppage was 1:32
