Unbeaten heavyweight contender Denis Boytsov (31-0, 25 KOs) has started training for his next ring return, reportedly taking place on February 9th in Hamburg, Germany - but that has yet to be confirmed. Boytsov has been out of the ring since last April and had elbow surgery which he had in November. The Russian fighter is still officially promoted by Universum Box-Promotion. Boytsov has been putting in work with such fighters as Manuel Charr and Denis Bakhtov. Denis is training under Ouvena Riaz, who worked as an assistant coach, part-time at Universum.
