Oleg Maskaev The Subject of a Promotional Tug of War

By Alexander Pavlov

Former heavyweight champion Oleg Maskaev is the target of a promotional tug of war in Russia. Kirill Pchelnikov announced that Maskaev would be part of a show on December 30th, but over the weekened promoter Vladimir Hryunov announced his intention to stage a fight involving Maskaev on the December 17th event which features a cruiserweight fight between WBA champion Denis Lebedev and Colombian Santaderom Silgado.

Pchelnikov says there is no chance that Maskaev will fight on December 17th.

"Vladimir Hryunov had wishful thinking: Maskaev will not be able to fight on both shows, on December 17 and 30th. We talked to Maskaev literally five minutes ago. We have a good business relationship, a contract, and on Tuesday we will announce the name of his opponent."

regardless of how quickly maskaev ends up on his back i'm sure both promoters want to cash in on his name as i'm sure there will be a good crowd for both shows. i think if maskaev has a contract…
