Rakhim Chakhkiev is Added to Morales-Maidana Undercard
By Inna Lagun (Allboxing.ru)
New cruiserweight hopeful Rakhim Chakhkiev (9-0, 7 KOs), 28, has been just added to the stellar undercard of the fight between Argentinean terror Marcos Rene Maidana and three-division five-time former champion and Mexican icon, Erik Morales, which takes place on April 9 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Chakhkiev, a 2008 Beijing heavyweight gold medalist for Russia, will be seen in a four-rounder against yet-to-be-defined opponent. Chances are high it might be American upset specialist Harvey Jolley (11-16-1, 6 KOs). Chakhkiev is coming off a first-round destruction of unworthy Ukrainian Alex Mogylewski (12-6, 8 KOs), who was quickly dispatched by two left hooks to the head.
