“Oleg is definitely going on with his comeback. He is serious about that. His next fight is about to take place either in Moscow, the Russian capital, or in Saransk, which is the capital of Mordovia”, said Pchelnikov in his interview with RSport. “We have reached an agreement in principle to make the bout but an understandable pause occurred due to the New Year’s holidays.
