Rakhim Chakhkiev vs Jaidon Codrington on April 21?
By Per Ake Persson
It´s not officially confirmed but rising cruiserweight contender Rakhim "the Machine" Chakhkiev might face former Contender participant Jaidon Codrington on April 21 in Schwerin, Germany, on Universum´s big promotion headed by Karoly Balszay´s defense of the WBA regular super middleweight title against Dimitri Sartison.
Codrington, 20-2, is perhaps most famous for his losses to Sakio Bika and Allan Green and has been inactive since 2010. He´s never fought a fullblown cruiser but is likely to give Chakiev, Olympic Gold Medallist and 12-0, a good fight. It´s difficult to see him win though as "the Machine" appears to be the real thing.
Thats all i have to say concerning it, however Jaidon has the skills to win this fight.....But still, not a good fight for my dude....Comment by The Surgeon on 04-13-2012
I always really liked Cordington, stylish and powerful if a bit leaky in the defence and weak in the chin.... Good guy too going by how he came across on the Contender. Dont sound like the best fight for him…Comment by 77Ritchie77 on 04-13-2012
