Top Rank To Scout Levan Ghvamichava in Puerto Rico

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com has been informed that Top Rank is looking at signing Georgian fighter Levan Ghvamichava (9-0) if all goes well in his fight this Saturday in Puerto Rico.  The 27-year-old prospect faces tough Puerto Rican Samuel Santana (5-8-1).  Although his record is less than stellar, Santana is a tough fighter who has never been knocked out.

He showed his toughness when he was knocked down four times in six rounds by hot prospect Jose Benavidez on the Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez 3 undercard yet made it to the final bell.  The fight will be part of the untelevised Solo Boxeo undercard that features 2012 Puerto Rican Olympian Felix Verdejo versus Corbin Page and Gamalier Rodriguez versus Alico Castaneda.

Ghvamichava is managed by Ireland based Gary Hyde who also guides the career of WBO/WBA super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux.  The Cuban is co-promoted by Top Rank and Caribe Promotions.  Ghvamichava was recently in training camp with IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander, helping him prepare for his fight this Saturday against Lee Purdy in Atlantic City.

Top Rank matchmaker Brad Goodman has confirmed to Boxingscene.com that if Ghvamichava shines on Saturday that he will likely be signed to a promotional contract.

Wow.... I was just thinking to myself last night "what happened to Levan?" Weird. Good for him though, I think he has a bright future personally.
