A former challenger for the world heavyweight title, Alexander Ustinov of Russian, will have his next fight on July 27 in Moscow, according to the boxer's manager Vladimir Hryunov.
“He was supposed to have a fight on July 23 in Belarus, but his opponent did not have enough time to fulfill the necessary requirements for participating in the fight. Now Ustinov will have a fight on July 27 in Moscow,” Hryunov said to tass.
On the record of the 43-year-old, Ustinov has 35 victories (26 by knockout) and four defeats.
In 2017, he fought for the vacant World Boxing Association (WBA) "regular" title against Germany's Manuel Charr, and lost by decision. He then lost back to back fights, inside the distance, at the hands of Joe Joyce and Michael Hunter.
The last time he entered the ring was back in July of last year in Moscow, securing a knockout victory in the first round over Ukrainian Alexander Nesterenko.
