Team Pirog: Focused on May Bout, Then Geale on HBO
By Ruslan Chikov
Kyril Pchelnikov, co-promoter for WBO middleweight champion Dmitry Pirog (19-0, 15KOs), says the boxer is fully focused on a May 1st defense in Russia. The opponent has not been secured, but Pchelnikov is looking for someone in the WBO's top ten. If everything goes as planned, then the focus will shift to finalize a deal for an August unification clash with IBF champion Daniel Geale (27-1, 15KOs) of Australia, which may be televised by American cable network HBO.
"Our main task right now - is [for Pirog] to defend his title in May against a fighter in the WBO's top ten, whose name we will issue at a later date," said Pchelnikov." Next, we plan to stage a unification bout with the IBF world champion Daniel Geale on HBO. Negotiations [for a fight with Geale] have been taking place for some time."
