By Alexey Sukachev

Ukrainian light heavyweight prospect Ismayl Sillakh (20-1, 16 KOs) could have the opportunity to erase his worst pro memories, if he is to face cruiserweight contender Rakhim Chakhkiev (16-1, 12 KOs) of Russia on Oct. 5 as a part of Wladimir Klitschko versus Alexander Povetkin showdown in Moscow. Team Sillakh received an initial offer from Chakhkiev's handlers but it wasn't actually eye-popping. Negotiations between the camps are under way right now, report Ukrainian sources.

WBC #13 Sillakh, a former amateur standout, is 3-0, 2 KOs, this year since being sensationally knocked out by another Russian Denis Grachev last April. He is penciled to fight yet another Russian Konstantin Piternov (13-3, 4 KOs), next Saturday over ten rounds in Donetsk, Ukraine.

Chakhkiev, a 2008 Beijing Olympic gold medalist at heavyweight, is coming off a tough loss to WBC cruiserweight king Krzysztof Wlodarczyk from this past June. He is rated #5 by the WBC and the IBF, and #15 by the WBA.

Sillakh's last 3 bouts vs non-punchers, IMO he still has the loss in his mind...moving up to CW vs a big puncher is not the smartest career move, and 4 not the best of $$$...

[QUOTE=hyeduk]its funny how Rakhim's team cant find a good come-back opponent but is picking on a guy who fights in light heavyweight...next time send an offer to fight Zab Judah at a catch weight..Silakh should stay in his weight division and recover from his loss.... And i also like how the a...

Bad matchup for ismayil,,,,,, He should be trying to fight other lightheavys........ Rakiem beats him up........ ismiyal vs dawson would be a decent scrap
