Sillakh, Senchenko Are Back on Aug. 24 in Donetsk

By Alexey Sukachev

August 24 fight card in Donetsk, Ukraine, is shaping up quickly and can see a good share of top Ukrainian boxers on one show. Latest additions to the list are Vyacheslav Senchenko and Ismayl Sillakh. The card is crowned with the WBA super middleweight interim championship showdown between current titleholder Stanislav Kashtanov (30-1, 16 KOs) and WBA #15 Costa-Rican Jaime Barboza (18-7-1, 8 KOs).

WBA #11, IBF #12 and WBC #13 welterweight Senchenko (33-1, 22 KOs) , 36, is coming of his most sound career win over comebacking British legend Ricky Hatton last November, whom he stopped with a massive body shot. Former WBA champion Senchenko is scheduled for ten against rugged Argentinean journeyman Carlos Adan Jerez (37-15-3, 18 KOs). Senchenko is then scheduled to face undefeated Kell Brook (30-0, 20KOs) on October 26th in Sheffield.

On the same card, WBC #13 light heavyweight Ismayl Sillakh (20-1, 16 KOs) is coming back against an opponent to be named, and the rounds for this fight are unknown. Sillakh, 28, was on a fast track to a world title shot up until his crushing defeat to Denis Grachev last April. The black Ukrainian is 3-0, 2 KOs, in 2013 but also in deep waters with an ongoing managerial and promotional issues with his current handlers.

Featherweight Oleg Yefimovich (23-1, 12 KO) will put his WBA I/C title at risk against another Argentinean import Luis Armando Juarez (17-6-2, 4 KOs) over twelve. Yefimovich is rated #7 by the WBA. Also super bantamweight Olexander Yegorov (12-0-1, 6 KOs) is set for ten against yet another Argentinean Diego Sananco (17-13-4, 5 KOs).

Already announced are three minor title attractions. Light middleweight Artiom Karpets (18-0, 6 KOs) will battle for a vacant WBA I/C title versus Italian veteran Tobia Guiseppe Loriga (27-2-2, 6 KOs). Flyweights Artiom Dalakian (7-0, 5 KOs) and WBA #12 Olexander Gryshchuk (12-0, 5 KOs) will be tested by Filipino opponents. Dalakian defends his WBA International title with Juan Purisima (11-3-1, 4 KOs), while Gryshchuk will risk his WBA I/C title against Jason Canoy (16-3-2, 11 KOs).
