Eleider Alvarez-Dmitry Sukhotsky, 7/19 in Quebec

By Alexey Sukachev and Alexey Uralets

According to sources in Russia, highly regarded Canada-based Columbian Eleider Alvarez (15-0, 8 KOs) is set for possibly the biggest test of his career in a fight against dangerous veteran kayo artist Dmitry Sukhotsky of Russia. The fight will reportedly take place on July 19 somewhere in Quebec but most likely at the Bell Center, Montreal.

WBO #2, WBA #3 and WBC #10 ranked light heavyweight Alvarez, 30, is already 2-0 this year with a pair of hard-fought unanimous decisions against fellow prospects. Alvarez, who debuted as a prizefighter in 2009, is a two-time (2207 and 2008) Pan-American champion and also 2008 Beijing Olympian for his native land.

In Sukhotsky (21-2, 16 KOs), he will face a strong-willed veteran slugger, whose stellar moment came (and rapidly waned) in the eighth round of his December 2009 WBO championship fight against then-reigning titleholder Juergen Braehmer. Sukhotsky, 33, had Braehmer on the brink of a stoppage, having scored a lengthy series of unanswered punches, but just came up short, losing a close decision. He was on a roller coaster since then, his latest success being a road stoppage win over capable former European champion Eduard Gutknecht last November. Sukhotsky, who also holds a win over such names as Aleksy Kuziemski and Nadjib Mohammedi, is rated #5 by the WBO, #7 by the WBC, #11 by the WBA and #12 by the IBF.
