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."

HBO should of done this last year with Sergio as the top MW there should of been an elimanator of sorts between 2 of the upper class MW to be viewed as a possible opponent instead of him having to fight guys who had no exposure in the states when it was obvious Chavez wasn't going to fight W...
