Team Mago Target David Price, Tyson Fury, Chris Arreola

By Rick Reeno

Sampson Lewkowicz, promoter of undefeated Russian heavyweight Magomed "Mago" Abdusalamov (13-0, 13KOs), is prepared to match his fighter against either of the young guns coming up in the UK - David Price (12-0, 10KOs) and Tyson Fury (17-0, 13KOs).

Last week, Price's promoter Frank Maloney labeled Fury with a new moniker - "Chicken Fury" - because Fury vacated his British title in order to avoid a mandatory defense with Price.

Lewkowicz expects Price to avoid Mago in the same fashion.

"After his next fight, Mago is ready to fight Tyson Fury or David Price. But, I do not expect this to happen. Mago will prove that David Price has the same exact feathers like Chicken Tyson Fury," Lewkowicz told BoxingScene.com.

To go a step further, Lewkowicz is ready to match Mago against a far more experienced opponent - Chris Arreola (34-2, 29KOs).

"Mago would fight Chris Arreola. He needs an opponent like Mago to return to HBO. He can not return to HBO without an opponent like Mago, so we are ready to make this happen,' Lewkowicz said.

Mago returns on March 17th at New York's Madison Square Garden. He faces undefeated Jason Pettaway (11-0, 8KOs) on the Sergio Martinez-Matthew Macklin undercard.

It would be nice to see Abdusalamov vs. Arreola, Fury or Price. Seth Mitchell would be another good opponent for him.
