Chuprakov Battles Former WBA Champion Munoz on May 18

By Alexey Sukachev

The end of 2018 was truly disastrous for then-unbeaten Russian super featherweight champion Evgeny Chuprakov (20-1, 10 KOs).

The “Happy Gilmore” had high expectations going into his fight versus reigning WBO titleholder Masayuki Ito - but on New Year’s Eve the Japanese proved to be not only a simple titlist but a champion, stopping the Russian in seven rounds.

Chuprakov, 29, will try to recapture part of his glory on May 18 in Ekaterinburg, where he is penciled to fight 40-year old fight veteran and former two-time WBA super flyweight champion Alexander “El Explosivo” Munoz for ten rounds. The record of the Venezuelan Munoz is presently 40-8, 31 KOs.


Chuprakov vs. Munoz will headline a full-stacked boxing card to be presented by the RCC Boxing Promotions on May 18 in Ekaterinburg, Russia.

In the top supportive bout of the night, the Uzbek “Prince” Ravshanbek Umurzakov (7-0, 6 KOs) will look to add WBA Asia lightweight title to his resume against South African import Anthony Moloisane (11-3-1, 7 KOs), who has never travelled far away from his native land.

Also on the card is a handful of prospects, including Kazakhstani Stanislav Kalitskiy (7-0, 3 KOs), Abkhazian Igor Adleiba (6-0, 3 KOs) and Uzbek kayo artist Elnur Abduraimov (4-0, 4 KOs). Ruslan Kamilov (5-0-1, 3 KOs) will go ahead with a bout for the WBA Continental super featherweight title against a yet unknown opponent.
