Boxing adviser/promoter Sampson Lewkowicz advised that heavyweight prospect Magomed Abdusalamov (12-0, 12KOs) is ready to fight British/Commonwealth champion Tyson Fury (17-0, 12KOs) next. Abdusalamov returned to the ring on Sunday night at Texas Station in Las Vegas, and stopped Rich Power in the third round of a one-sided fight. Coming into the match, Power (15-2, 11KOs) had one loss on his record, an eight round decision to Fury in September 2010.

Lewkowicz's star boxer, WBC Diamond middleweight champion Sergio Martinez, is likely going to face Matthew Macklin on March 17th. Lewkowicz would like to see Martinez-Macklin land in New York's Madison Square Garden, with Abdusalamov facing Fury in the co-feature.

"Tonight you saw that Abdusalamov is the real deal. He punished this kid for three rounds. The guy couldn't take the punishment anymore. This is the same guy who took Tyson Fury the distance last year. Fury wants to debut in America and make a name for himself. Well, Abdusalamov is ready to fight him. And I would like to make that fight on the Martinez-Macklin undercard," Lewkowicz told

I like Fury. He's generating hype and is exciting to watch but mostly because he is a serious KO waiting to happen. I think his win over Chisora was lucky because Del Boy showed up looking bad. Pajkic and Firtha were stopped early imo and Fury was hurt bad in both fights. Fury DID come bac...
