D PTS; 57:57, 57:57, 57:57
Very disappointing outcome of Tereshkin's first test with a live body. A draw with a decent journeyman who seems to be at the end of his pro career.
I dont intend to sound too harsh on Tereshkin as he is still a very young heavy with only a handful of fights in the paird ranks,but to tell you the truth I hadnt thought that he would have to settle with a draw against Serin.
Tereshkin still has to learn a lot of things before thinking of mixing it up with better opposition.
A draw with Serin doesnt bode really well for his further future at the big boys' league.
I know that fighters like Mazikin,Fields,or Serin are the kind of sub gate keepers that stop the touted talents who just dont have the class to be a big player one day.Nevertheless, I am quite disappointed with yesterday's outcome of Tereshkin ' s encounter with Serin.
