Russian Promoters Unite, Plan a Major Tournament in 2011

By Alexey Sukachev

Three of the best Russian boxing promoters – German Titov, Kirill Pchelnikov and Vitaly Supichenko –  will reportedly unify their efforts to produce a unique (for Russia) boxing tournament which will be held in 2011 and which will constitute of eight stages, at least, with a variety of young, hungry guns aiming at an unprecedented (for Russia) total fee of $100,000.

A huge tournament will have seven preliminary stages with a single quarter-finalist defined in the aftermath of each executed stage. The eighth quarter-finalist will be defined via fan poll. All eight quarter-finalists will fight in a “Prizefighter” like format at a specifically pre-arranged date as a part of a huge final show of the competition.

All seven preliminary events will be staged in various cities. Boxers from Russian, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland, Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan will take their parts in the tournament. Several minor and regional titles will be at stake as a part of the show.

Vitaly Supichenko: “We have been investigating this idea for more than several months already. I’m glad to announce that all details have been talked over positively and that we have reached preliminary agreements with TV bosses and sponsors. This tournament will be a major gift for our boxing fans, who will definitely appreciate its true value. Contests will be planned in 3x3 mode thus forcing fighters to risk much and to battle each other rather than to use dull and boring tactics. We shall see uncompromising affairs between young, hungry fighters who will deliver quality boxing”.

The first stage will be held already in April. An official presser will follow soon.
