By Alexey Sukachev

European light welterweight champion Denis Shafikov (27-0-1, 16 KOs) is ready to defend his title later tonight at the backyard of Scottish challenger Lee McAllister (34-2, 9 KOs) in Aberdeen.

“We are ready to fight McAllister, to shut this boastful kid up in front of his own fans”, commented Shafikov’s manager Oleg Bogdanov to BoxingScene. “Denis is in great shape and fully pumped up for the fight. We’ve had a wonderful camp under the guidance of Alexander Zimin. Coach Alexander will be in Germany  to help Alexander Povetkin get his own victory but I’m confident Denis will win in Scotland nevertheless”. Shafikov is ranked #12 by the WBC.
