Baysangurov vs Konecny WBO Bout Official For March 10

By Dmitry Mikhalchuk and Alexey Sukachev

It’s official. According to K2 Promotions, WBO light middleweight beltholder Zaurbek Baysangurov (26-1, 20 KOs) will put his title at risk on March 10 at Terminal Entertainment Center in Brovary, Ukraine, against dangerous Czech opponent and WBO obligatory challenger Lukas Konecny (47-3, 22 KOs) in a real toss-up encounter. Both parties have reportedly signed the documents.

Both fighters are probably the best European representatives in this weight class and haven’t lost a fight since 2008, when Konecny (11 wins since that) dropped a close decision to then-champion Sergey Dzinziruk, and Kiev-based Russian Baysangurov (7 victories from the moment) was sensationally kayoed by veteran puncher Cornelius Bundrage. An official presser to announce the whole event will take place on February 22 in Kiev. K2 will promote the show.

Interesting fight. I assume they have both been in training since March 10th isn't far off. Konecny has been waiting a long time for another shot

Good news. I wonder what other K-2 fighters will be on this card? Max Bursak (Pirog's mandatory) is due for a fight.
