By Alexey Sukachev

It’s official. WBO middleweight champion Dmitry Pirog (19-0, 14 KOs) will put his title at risk for the third time against WBO #9-ranked and former WBA interim-light middleweight beltholder Nobuhiro Ishida (24-7-2, 9 KOs) of Japan - on May 1 at the Dynamo Palace of Sports in Krylatskoye, Moscow, Russia. The contracts were signed between Kirill Pchelnikov, the Russian promoter of Pirog, and his American counterparts in Golden Boy Promotions, on behalf of Ishida.

Ishida will get outworked but as long as he lands some clean shotshere and there to test Pirogs chin that'll have to do. Although not really interested in this fight that much
