Gradovich Eyes Ring Return in September or October

By Yuri Tarantin

IBF featherweight champion Evgeny Gradovich (19-0, 9KOs) is targeting a ring return in September or October. The location and oppoent is unknown. Gradovich's last three fights have taken place in Macau, China. In his last fight, on May 31, Gradovich went down in the sixth but dominated the action to win a unanimous decision over Alexander Miskirtchian.

"We plan to fight in September or October, that would be the best option. Of course, I would like to get in the ring at home. We were offered a fight at the end of August, but I won't be ready in time, because I put in a lot of effort for the last bout," Gradovich said.
