Heavyweight contender Ivan Dychko takes his 100% KO record to Argentina this week as the giant Kazak is scheduled to return to the ring.
The hammer-fisted Dychko will be looking to secure a 12th knockout from as many pro fights in Buenos Aires on Thursday (June 23) when he locks horns with local favourite Kevin Espindola.
The 10 round heavyweight clash takes place on the WBA’s KO Drugs Boxing Festival and will see 6’9” Dychko fight for the first time under the Probellum promotional banner, having signed with their company earlier this year.
Dychko, a former sparring partner of Wladimir Klitschko, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wider, says that once he has dealt with Espindola, he will only be looking for “big fights”.
Dychko, a two-time Olympic bronze medallist, said: “I am ready for big fights and very soon, I will be ready to fight the world champions in the heavyweight division.
“I had a great amateur career and now I have picked up a lot of KOs in the pros. Everybody knows I have good technical ability, but my 11 knockouts show that I punch very hard.
“I know my heavyweight rivals are watching me.”
