Flu epidemic spreads over Russian Federation and left nobody untouched; boxers included. Belarussian super bantamweight Andrey Isaev (22-2, 7 KOs) and rising super featherweight prospect Fedor Papazov (6-0, 4 KOs) were also sidelined for the time being after catching a virus, and thus leading to the cancellation of a relatively big boxing card, which was pre-scheduled for Feb. 19 in Moscow, Russia, under Kirill Pchelnikov and German Titov Promotions.

The main event of the show would have been a twelve-rounder for the vacant WBC ABC light heavyweight belt between Roman Simakov (14-1-1, 8 KOs) and Kenyan journeyman Douglass Otieno (22-5, 11 KOs). It’s tenatively going to move to March 11 in Kemerovo, where Nikolay Valuev’s 2011 Boxing Cup will take place. Papazov will next appear on March 31 in Izhevsk against an unknown opponent. Thai Chaiyong Sithsaithong can still be a possibility. Another participant of the show, Ruslan Khayrtdinov (8-0, 3 KOs) will most probably appear in the undercard of the Pavel Mamontov vs. Robert Dasoyan collision on Feb. 26 in Moscow.
