Former boxer turned trainer, Scott Welch, is planning to bring heavyweight contender Alexander Dimitrenko (32-2, 21KOs) back strong. In his last fight, Dimitrenko was dominated and stopped in eleven rounds by rising star Kubrat Pulev. Welch, who got hired by Dimitrenko a few weeks prior to that fight, says the two of them didn't have enough time to properly train together and build a good foundation.

"We only had five weeks to prepare, and it was very short term," said Welch.  "Now when he comes over, I will invite him over for two weeks in England, and we will begin to work. Unfortunately, five weeks of working together was not enough. Very little indeed .In recent years, Alexander has rarely been entering the ring. Also, I think that he should cut some weight."

i don't think it's weight that is the problem. it's between his ears that the problem lies. he's got some andrew golota in him. lots of skill but the mental side of the game is the real issue in his case. he's had a few mental breakdowns over the last few years.
