Chagaev Says No Tyson Fury Fight Until New Team Found

By Inna Lagun,

Former WBA heavyweight champ Ruslan Chagaev (30-2-1, 19KOs) is satisfied with his seventh round TKO of Werner Kreiskott (12-19), which took place on the Felix Sturm-Daniel Geale undercard on Saturday night in Oberhausen.

Undefeated British boxer Tyson Fury (19-0, 14KOs) would like a piece of Chagaev, but the former champion doesn't feel this is possible at the moment. Chagaev is still without a trainer and the boxer is having some trouble putting together a new team.

"As I've said, this is a great opponent and to fight him I would need a solid preparation with a good team. Finding professionals in the shortest amount of time is my immediate task," Chagaev said.

Chagaev might aswell go with Fritz Sdunek and k2 promotions. Vitali is nearly finished with the rumours he will quit after Charr so Sdunek might want a heavyweight replacement and K2 will need to fill the space up.

can't fault him for that! the guy does need a solid team behind him & a good promoter. i'm surprised he doesn't sign with sauerland. they seem to keep their heavyweights busy.
