WBA #1 and also WBA interim middleweight champion Dmitry Chudinov (13-0-2, 8 KOs) has high aspirations regarding both his next title defense against WBA #12 Frenchman Mehdi Bouadla (30-5, 11 KOs) and his plans after that. Chudinov battles Bouadla on a historic night of boxing in Sevastopol, Crimea, on August 9.
