Ismayl Sillakh-Maxim Vlasov Set For June 2nd in Moscow

By Igor Lazorin, tass

Russian boxer Maxim Vlasov and Ismayl Sillakh of Ukraine have signed contracts to fight each other on the 2nd of June, according to fight promoter Zaki Yunis.

The promoter notes - "both fighters have signed contracts for that date."

The ten round non-title cruiserweight bout, which is taking place in Moscow, Russia - will be part of the show called "Gladiator" - a series of bouts featuring promising young athletes and supported by the Professional Boxing Federation of Russia.

Originally, the fight was scheduled for April 29, but postponed due to Sillakh dealing with an illness.

Sillakh has a record of 23 wins (18 by knockout) and two defeats. Vlasov has a record of 33 wins (17 by knockout) and two defeats.

Both fighters have come up from lower weight divisions. Vlasov fought at super middleweight and light heavyweight before a move up to cruiserweight. He's won four in a row since suffering a ten round unanimous decision loss to current WBO 168-pound champion Gilberto Ramirez in 2015.

Sillakh was out of the ring for nearly two years after suffering a knockout loss to light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev in 2013. He returned last year as a cruiserweight and picked up two victories as a result.
