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.

This guy is the real ****in deal. I promise anyone. People who are looking for anything at all that resembles Mike Tyson it's this guy. Well rounded and finely tooned

I wonder when Chakhiev will challenge one of the champions. 1 or 2 years maybe?
