Fedchenko Bans Mexican Press, Sparring Mates From Gym

By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

Junior welterweight Sergey Fedchenko (30-1, 13KOs) of Ukraine has a secret strategy in mind. The boxer shocked the local press when he snuck away with his team to an undisclosed gym to train in private. Team Fedchenko will not allow any Mexican press, fans or even Mexican sparring partners to witness their training sessions.  

Fedchenko is preparing to face Juan Manuel Marquez (53-6, 39KOs) next Saturday night at the new Arena Mexico in Mexico City. 

Leon Brito of Zanfer Promotions, who work with Marquez, had all of the training aspects worked out for Fedchenko and his team, during their stay in Mexico, but said everything fell apart when the boxer and his entire team left for another gym. The new location was apparently secured for them by the Russian Embassy.

Viktor Demchenko, the manager and trainer of Fedchenko, is confident his boxer will upset Marquez, and he doesn't want anyone, spies or otherwise, to take note of their planned tactics.

[QUOTE=Stop;11980689]Well it does make sense what he's trying to do. [B]Marquez has an entire country on his back, who want to see him rebound after losing to Pac[/B]. They would probably take notes of Fredchenko's style, his flaws, and such…
