Kudryashov Will be Tested by Palacios in Moscow, 3/28

By Alexey Sukachev

WBC/WBA #6 and IBF #12 Russian cruiserweight Dmitry Kudryashov is said to be one of the hardest hitters in recent memory - with most assuming that from his perfect record (16-0, 16 KOs). However, both he, his frenetic power and untested chin have never been really checked. JC Gomez, a former WBC cruiserweight king, was one, who was considered to be a perfect gatekeeper, but he was vaporized by the Russian in less than a minute. 

Now, according to, another worthy test for the Russian Hammer is pending in WBC #15 Francisco Palacios (23-2, 14 KOs) of Puerto Rico. The fight is set to take place on March 28 in Moscow for Kudryashov's WBC CISBB and WBA International titles. Palacios, a former two-time world title challenger, is coming off a two year-long hiatus following his almost back-to-back losses to then-reigning champion Krzysztof Wlodarczyk in 2011 and 2013.

Watch the fight for an exhibition of brutal punching power. Kudryashov displayed frightening power with his K.O. of Palacios.

I see Palacios frustrating the Russian with his movement and hand speed. Palacios is a skilled fighter and could very well surprise many... kind of how he did with Wlodarczyc in their first fight.

Kudryashov is a bad man with serious KO power. I see him decapitating Palacios.
