Chakhkiev Sparring With Rusiewicz For The Kotlobay Bout
By Per Ake Persson
On the 28th of January at the five-star luxury hotel Grand Elysee in Germany, undefeated cruiserweight prospect Rakhim "The Machine" Chakhkiev (11-0, 9KOs) will get his toughest test to date in WBC Baltic champion Alexander Kotlobay (21-2-1, 15KOs). Chakhkiev has started training hard at Universum's new gym in Hamburg. The young prospect is sparring with several boxers, including his former rival Lukasz Rusiewicz (10-11, 3KOs). Chakhkiev fought Rusiewicz twice, in July 2010 and December 2010, and twice the Polish fighter was able to last the distance.
I see Chakhkiev is already in the WBO rankings. I think he may be challenging for a world title by the end of 2012.Post a Comment - View More User Comments (1)
