Wlodarczyk Getting Career High Pay For Rakhim Chakhkiev

By Luke Furman

On Friday, WBC cruiserweight champion - Krzysztof Wlodarczyk (47-2-1, 33 KOs) will take part in one of the toughest fights of his career. His opponent is an experienced amateur and professional - Olympic gold medal winner Rakhim Chakhkiev (16-0, 12 KOs). Andrzej Wasilewski, who handles the career of the Polish champion, said his boxer will receive the highest purse of his long career for the dangerous defense in Moscow, Russia.

"Yes, this will be the highest purse that Krzysztof will get for a fight. I can't say anything about the exact details, because as a rule we do not talk about these things. There are boxers who do not wish to publicly disclose the amount of their earnings. Also, not all promoters want to talk about it either. I can tell you one thing that  Krzysztof will get a record payment for the fight of his career. As per our terms and conditions it is a very good amount. In Poland, we wouldn't get this kind of money," said the head of KnockOut Promotions.

Is Kluch still promoting theMachine ? I'm glad Boytsov is rid of that foul man.though Kluch got Rakhim this two fight deal,I still dislike Kluch. Chakhkiev,Boytsov and Golovkin my three favourite after Adamek,Kessler and Klitschko brothers.I wanna see Chakhkiev clear…
