Ismayl Sillakh Finally Return on June 12 in Cherkassy

By Alexey Sukachev

In what can be described as an unannounced, informal card featuring four of Wladimir Klitschko’s former sparring partners – Umar Salamov, Ismayl Sillakh, Yago Kiladze and Sergey Radchenko – will take place on June 13 in Cherkassy, Ukraine. Non-surprisingly, a whole card is promoted by K2.

In what can be bannered as the main event, WBO #13 20-year old Kiev-based Russian Umar Salamov (12-0, 10 KOs) will put his WBO European title at risk versus Czech veteran Tomas Adamek (23-10-2, 9 KOs), not to be confused with a two-time Polish world champion of the same name.

Former world title challenger Ismayl Sillakh (21-2, 17 KOs), 30, once being considered one of the biggest coming stars in boxing, will fight for the first time since his crushing defeat at the hands of Sergey Kovalev in November 2013. His opponent in an eight-rounder is still to be defined.

WBO #9 and IBF #13 cruiserweight Yako Kiladze (23-1, 16 KOs) will continue his re-build after a one-punch first-round kayo loss to Youri Kalenga in June 2013 by taking on always durable Pole Lukasz Rusiewicz (19-19, 10 KOs), who has never been knocked out cleanly in his losses, despite two stoppages.

Also on the card are Sergey Radchenko (2-0), light welterweight Mishiko Beselia (10-0, 7 KOs) and all-action welterweight Ilya Primak (8-1, 6 KOs).

Ismayal is one of those boxers with some much talent and skill but plagued by one of the worst chins in boxing, even going back to his amateur days. Talk about being dealt one really bad hand, a glass jaw.
