Baysangurov-Konecny Card: Fedchenko, Others Added

By Alexey Sukachev and Dmitry Mikhalchuk

In two weeks, on Oct. 6, WBO light middleweight titleholder Zaurbek Baysangurov (27-1, 20 KOs) will put his belt at risk for the second time since being crowned the champion by the World Boxing Organization. Baysangurov fights possibly the biggest opponent in his career in experienced Czech perennial contender Lukas Konecny (48-3, 23 KOs) at the Kiev’s Palace of Sport in Ukraine; the show being promoted by K2 with assistance of the SES-Boxing (led by Ulf Steinforth).

Meanwhile, the undercard of the event is slowly being composed by the organizers. The tournament will feature a comeback of Sergey Fedchenko (30-2, 13 KOs), a 31-year old Ukrainian stylist, who is best known for his spirited although one-sided loss on points to Juan Manuel Marquez this April.

Other notable names to watch after will be former WBO Europe light middleweight champion Dmitry Nikulin (24-1, 8 KOs), super middleweight upset artist Olexander Cherviak (9-2-1, 3 KOs) and undefeated heavyweight Andriy Rudenko (20-0, 12 KOs). Prospects Vitaliy Nevesioly (12-1, 7 KOs), Dmytro Semernin (9-0, 3 KOs) and Igor Pankevich are also scheduled to take their parts in the evening. Opponent for all aforementioned fighters will be named soon. The card is also planned to feature several of SES-Boxing fighters.
