Postol is Back on May 29, Kucher vs Makabu on July 13

By Alexey Sukachev and Dmitry Mikhalchuk

Elite Boxing Promotions, one of the leading Ukrainian boxing companies, will present its next card on May 29 at the Sportlife Club in Kiev, Ukraine. The main event will see another tune-up for the WBC #1 ranked light welterweight Victor Postol, who recently outpointed American challenger Henry Lundy in a tough fight. This time WBC international 140lb titlist won't put his regalia at stake but instead will face the Uzbek import Bahrom Payozov (21-2, 15 KOs) over eight rounds.

Three more EBP prospects will see action in the udercard. Super bantamweight Oleg Malinovskiy (7-0, 2 KOs) takes on another Uzbek Olim Nazarov (10-1, 7 KOs) over six. Rising welterweight hard-hitter Ilya Primak (4-0, 4 KOs) collides with Hokim Karimov (3-1, 2 KOs) also over six. And, finally, Stanislav Skorokhod (3-0, 2 KOs) will be featured in a four-rounder.


Meanwhile, another highly acclaimed Elite Boxing's representative - cruiserweight Dmytro Kucher (21-0, 15 KOs) will be a part of the show, co-promoted by Rodney Berman (Golden Gloves Promotions) and Lou DiBella of DiBella Entertainment, on July 13 in Monaco. WBC #3, IBF #6 and WBO #13 rated 200lber will reportedly put his WBC international title at risk against extremely dangerous (but fragile) Congolese kayo artist Ilunga Makabu (13-1, 13 KOs). No official confirmation was released by the EBP but both parties have already resolved almost all of the details.

Kucher will be a part of a huge boxing event, which features a number of ex-Soviet boxers. In the main event, WBA light welterweight champion Khabib Allakhverdiev (18-0, 8 KOs) will offer a chance to wrestle this belt back to the former champion Souleymane M'Baye (40-4-1, 22 KOs) of France. In a co-feature undefeated American super middleweight Edwin Rodriguez (23-0, 15 KOs) will risk his perfect record against very dangerous upset artist Denis Grachev (13-1-1, 8 KOs). Finally, EBU middleweight champion Max Bursak (26-1-1, 12 KOs) will put his title at stake against British import Prince Arron (23-4-2, 5 KOs).

If Postol is the #1 contender for Danny Garcias title, wouldn't he become Danny's mandatory soon? Or do you have to fight an eliminator To become mandatory? I.e Stiverne, Pulev, etc
