Petr Petrov Looks To Put on Impressive Performance

Philadelphia --Coming off his impressive 6-round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Fedor Papazov, former world title challenger Petr Petrov (33-4-2, 15 KO's) opened some eyes in the United States with his quarterfinal win in Boxcino 2014 on February 21 in Laughlin, Nevada.

On Friday night, March 28, Petrov will have literally a tall order in front of him when he takes on tournament underdog Chris Rudd (13-1, 8 KO's) in the semifinals at the 4 Bears Casino and Lodge in New Town, North Dakota.

The fight will be televised live on ESPN, ESPN Deportes+ and WatchESPN beginning at 9 PM ET.

What made Petrov's performance against Papazov more impressive was his uncertainty about performing in front of the American fans.

"It was a great win for me," said Petrov.  "I had not fought in 10 months so I was real nervous to be on the big stage for my first televised fight in the U.S.  I am happy to move on to the next fight and I will be stronger and more relaxed." 

Next up is the 6'0" Rudd who is coming off a 7-round decision over Yakubu Amidu in a (draw breaker) fight which was the biggest upset of the quarterfinal round.

"Rudd is going to be difficult because of his height and reach but I believe my trainer Danny Zamora and I have prepared a good strategy and we have had with great work in the gym."

With a win over Rudd, Petrov will take one more step closer to reaching the finals.

"I am not thinking of the finals yet.  I have to get through this fight and go from there. My main thing is to win and look good for the people watching on ESPN.  I would like to thank my team, Banner Promotions, Danny Zamora and my sponsors Lucas Oil, Snac Supplements and I know big things will come my way," finished Petrov.
