The only card today appears to be a small one with several big name fighters in action though little to really be excited about.
The main event, and with out a doubt the most relevant bout, comes at Super Middleweight where we get two unbeaten men colliding for the WBA interim world title. The bout pits local favourite Fedor Chudinov (11-0, 9) against unbeaten Australian Ben McCulloch (14-0, 11) in what looks likely to be an explosive encounter between two men looking for their biggest win to date. The problem we have with this bout is that there is no need to have a dubious title up for grabs and it would have made more sense for this to have been a WBA eliminator, if anything.
Another bout we suspect will have fans interested is a Heavyweight contest between the gigantic Alexander Ustinov (29-1, 21) and the well traveled Chauncy Welliver (55-9-5, 22). Ustinov is a genuine man mountain and although no the most skilled his sole loss came to Kubrat Pulev and he has enough about him to give decent Heavyweights a hard time. On the other hand Welliver has been in with almost everyone and is tough despite limitations. This could be very interesting in the ring, or very slow and disappointing contest. Notably the PABA Heavyweight title will be on the line here.
Originally we believe that both Middleweight hopeful Arif Magomedov (13-0, 8) and former world title holder Khabib Allakhverdiev (19-1, 9) were supposed to be on this show however it now seems neither of them will be in action. Sadly that has taken this show from really good to just somewhat lacking, a real shame considering how good the card once looked. Sadly the remaining bouts on it, other than the two main events, are pretty poor in all honesty.
