Promoter Vladimir "красивый" Hryunov has revealed that his December 21st headliner will be a "winner takes it all" fight at the Dynamo Palace of Sports in Moscow, Russia. Hryunov says it is the first time where two boxers, former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr. (56-8, 40KOs) and French contender Zine Eddine Benmaklouf (17-3-1, 8KOs), have signed contracts where the winner will receive all of the purse money.
"When we started negotiations for the fight, Zine Eddine Benmaklouf said he was ready to enter the ring against Roy in Moscow only if it was under such terms. Roy supported the initiative of the opponent. The strongest will take it all, this is another great incentive to win," Hryunov said.
As part of the card, there will a clash between Russian Dmitry Chudinov (11-0-2, 7KOs)and Colombian contender Juan Camilo Novoa (22-5-1, 20KOs) for the WBA title interim-middleweight championship.
