Chagaev-Oquendo is Set To Announced For June 7th

By Per Ake Persson

Former WBA heavyweight champion Ruslan Chagaev (32-2-1, WBA # 3) takes on Fres Oquendo (37-7, WBA # 6) ) June 7 in Grozny (Russia). There will be a press conference at the Hotel Grand Elysee in Hamburg on Tuesday (May 20) but neither Chagaev nor Oquendo will appear in person. Chagaev is along with trainer Artur Grigorian in training camp in Grozny while Oquendo prepares for the fight in Chicago so both will appear over video while promoter Timur Dugazaev is on hand in person. Both men hold two WBA subtitles and given the politics involved don´t be surprised if the winner of this fight will figure in a WBA world title fight in the near future.
