Dmitry Chudinov Sets His Eyes on Miguel Cotto

By Alexey Sukachev

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.

Chudinov views recently crowned WBC and lineal middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32 KOs) as his most desired opponent.

“We hope Cotto will agree to fight Dmitry," commented his promoter Vladimir Hryunov.

In the meantime, the next in line for Chudinov (or vice versa) is the winner of the same day’s contest between WBA #2 Australian Jarrod Fletcher and WBA #4 American Daniel Jacobs for the vacant WBA middleweight crown. The WBA's super champion is the Kazakh terror Gennady Golovkin.

They say Jacobs-Flecther winner will be next in line for him, but when did the WBA ever force their multiple champions to face one another? Bouadla isn't a great opponent based upon how he looked vs Kessler and Abraham, but…

If somebody doesn't know Mehdi Bouadla, he is the guy who fared better than any other fighter against Golovkin. First, he was not KOd. Second, he lasted 8 rounds. Third, while Bouadla lost by UD, the point difference on three…
