Khabib's Return Eyed For Pacquiao Card, Two More

By Yuri Tarantin

According to manager Vladimir Hryunov, WBA 'regular' junior welterweight champion Khabib Allakhverdiev (19-0, 9KOs) is likely going to return as part of the undercard to Manny Pacquiao's next fight, which is targeted for April 12th in Las Vegas. If all goes well, Khabib will have two more fights in 2014. Hryunov recently traveled to Las Vegas where he held a meeting with Khabib's promoter, Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum.

"In February, Khabib will travel to Las Vegas, where he will begin his preparation for the upcoming battle. Earlier I met with Bob Arum and we discussed that if all goes well -Khabib will be in the ring three times next year — in April, then in the summer and then, most likely in November," Hyrunov said.

[QUOTE=Russian Crushin;13988731]Khabib going nowhere quick after looking very promising last year[/QUOTE] Yeah very disappointing. When he first signed with Top rank I said I thought it was a mistake and they might keep him inactive/not move him forward as much…

Khabib going nowhere quick after looking very promising last year

April? Damn he's going to be inactive for a while. I think they should of snuck in a Khabib-Mayfield fight before the year ended. Then again, he is coming off an injury in 2013. I just hope he fights someone…

Mayfield would be a good start. Maybe Provodnikov if Ruslan stays at 140.
