Dmytro Kucher Battles Steve Herelius on Oct. 27 in Kiev

By Alexey Sukachev and Dmitry Mikhalchuk

A former champ is a champ even when his title was of the “interim” sort. On October 27 at fight club “SportLife” in Kiev, Ukraine, fast-rising cruiserweight Dmytro Kucher (18-0, 14 KOs) will risk his WBC International Silver title against his biggest opponent to date Steve Herelius of France.

Former French heavyweight champion Herelius (21-2-1, 12 KOs), now 36, is best known for stopping Firat Arslan in ten rounds of a thrilling war of attrition in July 2010 and winning the WBA interim cruiserweight belt. He lost his title in the first defense, being smacked up by Yoan Pablo Hernandez in seven back in February 2011. He hasn’t fought since.

Kucher, 28, is 4-0, 4 KOs, this year and got wins over relatively solid opposition, which includes Czech Lubos Suda, Belgian Geoffrey Battelo and Argentinean Cesar David Crenz among others.

The show, which is being made by the Elite Boxing Promotions, will also see a return of the WBC International Silver light welterweight trinket owner Victor Postol (19-0, 9 KOs) in a title fight; his opponent is still to be defined. Marat Kulumbegov (7-0-1, 4 KOs) and Oleg Malinovskiy (4-0, 2 KOs) will also be featured in action.
