Undefeated Russian welterweight Dmitry Mikhaylenko (21-0, 9KOs) will square off against a yet to be announced opponent in Sochi, Russia on April 29th.
Mikhaylenko recently won a unanimous decision against late replacement, Karim Mayfield, on the undercard of Kovalev vs. Pascal in Montreal, Canada.
For Mikhaylenko, this will be seen as great opportunity to further build his fan base in Russia. Although Mikhaylenko is promoted by Main Events in the United State, Titov Boxing Promotions, who promote Mikhaylenko in Russia, will be running the “Night of Champions” event under which Mikhaylenko will compete in April.
Alexey Titov, of Titov Boxing Promotions, stated “We have already signed six dates in one of the best areas of the country – and they will take place at the Ice Palace. The first event will take place on February 22. We are pleased to invite all of the boxing fans to visit during the holidays in Sochi”.
