Re: Sergey Rozhnov pro debut against Owen Beck next week
What the **** took him so long to turn pro, other than he probably had the wrong passport and no offers from rich promoters. He fought hard against Povetkin in that Olympic quarterfinal bout, even giving Sasha an 8 count(although underserved IMO).
The Russian team was pretty competitive so the Bulgarians scooped him up, not at all unusual. I cannot help wonder if this was the case with current World Champion Mezhidov, fighting for Aze!
