Vladimir Tikhonov Looking For Bigger Fights After Latest Win

Undefeated super bantamweight prospect Vladimir Tikhonov is now setting his sights on the top of his division after having notched his first victory under the Salita Promotions banner, a KO 8 over capable veteran Nikoloz Kokashvili on March 12 in Narva, Estonia,
 
25-year-old Tikhonov (now 14-0, 8 KOs) is the #1-ranked super bantamweight in Russia and, with his promotional problems a thing of the past, is ready for anyone in the world.
 
His promoter, Dmitriy Salita of Salita Promotions, says his fighter looked sensational against Kokashvili.
 
"Vladimir won every round before knocking him out," said Salita. "He had been through some inactivity during his career, but after dominating an opponent who was 16-2 going in the way he did, I'm confident he is ready for anyone in the world.
 
The southpaw Tikhonov is already designated a Sport Master of Russia in his home country, a prestigious honor bestowed upon the country's top athletes.
 
"He's ready for any of the champions or other top contenders at 122 lbs.," continued Salita. "This is going to be a very big year for Vladimir. A big fight is just a signed contract away and we are working hard to make it happen."
 
The current super bantamweight world champions are (WBC) Hugo Ruiz, (WBA) Guillermo Rigondeaux and Carl Frampton, (IBF) Carl Frampton and (WBO) Nonito Donaire.
