Russian Fight Calendar: Chudinov, Brudov, Lepikhin, More

By Alexey Sukachev

After a tedous, lazy summer, the Russian fight scene is slowly coming back to life in anticipation of a very huge event, planned for October 5 in Moscow, Russia, with a banner headliner between world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko and WBA regular champion Alexander Povetkin. It's less than two months remaining, and no big events are scheduled for this time span but there will be some local activity across the country.

----------------------

The next Saturday, Vladimir Hryunov will stage a nice-packed little show in Volgograd, which is more known abroad by its previous name - Stalingrad. The show will crown a big bike festival, set in the city at the same time.

In the main fight of the night, rising WBA #15 middleweight Dmitry Chudinov (9-0-2, 6 KOs) will try to acquire a vacant WBA International belt against hard-hitting Venezuelan Jorge Navarro (12-1, 10 KOs). Both fighters suffered blemishes in their last outings. Chudinov, who has previously stopped notable names Milton Nunez and Grady Brewer, was held just to a draw by elusive Patrick Mendy in July bout in England, while Navarro suffered his only defeat from world-class British operator Martin Murray.

The rest of the card will consist of ten-rounders. Hot lightweight blonde Svetlana Kulakova (7-0, 1 KO) will battle Kenyan import Judy Waguthii (12-5-3, 3 KOs). Hard-charging rookie Arif Magomedov (5-0, 4 KOs) will take on rugged Russian super middleweight titleholder Karen Avetisyan (7-5-1, 5 KOs) in a non-title affair. Finally, Dmitry's brother Fedor Chudinov (6-0, 5 KOs) collides with American KeAndrae Leatherwood (12-2-1, 8 KOs).

----------------------

Former WBA interim cruiserweight beltholder and multi-time title challenger Valery Brudov (40-4, 28 KOs), now making his transition to the 175lb division, will warm up in a six-rounder against Latvian trialhorse Jevgenijs Andrejevs (7-53, 1 KO), known for his toughness (just four stoppages). The bout takes place on August 31 in Krasnogorsk, a sattelite city of Moscow, Russia under promotion of Igor Sudelainen.

----------------------

Former BBU champion Vasily Lepikhin (14-0, 7 KOs) continues his way back to the ring on September 26 at Casino Vodoley in Ekaterinburg, Russia, against an opponent to be named. Lepikhin, 28, is 2-0 this year with two first-round kayos following a lengthy injury-forced hiatus. German Titov promotes.
