Chakhkiev Hunts For New Foe as Kamoko Withdraws

By Luke Furman

WBC #1 cruiserweight Rakhim Chakhkiev is looking for a new opponent on May 30 at the Luzhniki Arena in Moscow, Russia. Chakhkiev (18-1, 14 KOs) was scheduled to take on previously undefeated WBC #9 Ghanaian Braimah Kamoko (26-0, 20 KOs) on the undercard of Alexander Povetkin's bout against Manuel Charr, but now the 2008 Olympic gold medal winner is looking for a new opponent after Kamoko suffered a hand injury in camp and was forced to withdraw.

Chakhkiev's manager, Vyacheslav Karakash, stated: "Only recently did Kamoko's manager state that he injured his hand and will not be able to step into the ring. In the near future we will determine another opponent and what the options are."

[QUOTE=Tobi.G;14580926]Why is everyone withdrawing from Chakhiev. Kamoko is not the first one! Its a shame because it is a waste of time for Chakhiev.[/QUOTE] Future heir to the division,that's why.

Not another :blackeye: Was looking forward to this & seeing the Ghanaian's wacky entrance. Hopefully they can find someone durable on 7 days notice.
