Hryunov: Soliman Can Be Next for Chudinov on 8/8

By Alexey Sukachev

Dmitry Chudinov (13-0-2, 8 KOs) was an unproven prospect with an interim title coming into his Sunday fight versus rugged Dane middleweight and fellow talent Patrick Nielsen (22-1, 11 KOs). Twelve rounds later the Russian boxer is not only a new face in the middleweight elite but he has also elevated his status and is being put on the brink of a partial unification, says his promoter Vladimir Hryunov.

“The WBA issued a statement that Gennady Golovkin will be awarded a super champion’s status and will fight Daniel Geale next. At the same time, Dmitry’s status was elevated to that of a regular world champion. We are presently in negotiations with Team Soliman for a unification fight. The fight is preliminarily targeted for Aug. 8 in Sevastopol," said Hryunov to Andrey Kulyanov of Gazeta.ru.

Chudinov beat Nielsen on June 1 in Mytischi, Russia, with a unanimous decision (117-111, 116-112, and 115-113). One day earlier, the 40-year old Australian veteran made an international splash by convincingly beating a multi-time German champion Felix Sturm with lopsided scores (118-110, 118-110 and 117-111) in Sturm’s backyard to snatch Felix’s IBF 160lb title. Sevastopol is a seaport in Crimea, a point of conflict between neighboring nations of Russia and Ukraine.

Might be an OK fight - Chudinov is a tough brawler but ain't really got world class skills - if the money's right Soliman oughtta think about this.

Unification? That's like saying that Carl Froch unified the WBA and IBF belts when he beat Kessler.

Unification bout? Hahaha... Hyrunov will put up some money though, so Soliman should consider it
