Default Rakhim Chakhkiev turning pro

Rumors are circulating that 2008 Beijing Olympics heavyweight gold medalist for Russia Rakhim Chakhkiev is close to signing a deal with famed German promotional powerhouse Universum Box-Promotion.


any thoughts on what type of pro he will make and how far he can go

this guy is brave. i like his boxing, but glass chin will be a problem. so with his style he's gotta stay away
of big punchers and guys with good stamina, because he was running out of gas in 6 minutes.

Have you ever seen Chakhiev fight? He's very strong and has a top level chin. His game is built on boxing and brawling, and he doesn't flinch when he's hit. In fact I don't think he has been knocked down. The glass chin comment was a bunch of malarkey. Chakheiv is very sturdy.

If you want to go negative on Chakhiev, he's only 6'1", but he has a large big boned type of frame won't be fat at 215-220 pounds.

In this day and age there are plenty of good athletes in boxing, but very few stone cold fighters. Chakhiev is a stare you down, I'm going to take you out type of fighter with no fear. I am a fan of his style.

Can he be a champion? At cruiser weight, sure. At heavyweight, maybe Chakhkiev is good enough to win a belt 4-5 years down the road, but its going to have to come the hard way. Chakhiev is not as swift with his feet and hands as say Sultan Ibragimov is, and not quite as good as a boxer as Chagaev is.

Either way, this is a grade A type of prospect with the Olympic gold medal pedigree at heavyweight with a fan pleasing style.

Don't know, some people said his style would suit pro boxing but at the end of the day you never know until they actually are pros. Anyway, I'll always be a supporter because he punked that Russo bitch in the Olympics, that was great.
Chakhkiev is heavily muscled so he'll probably fight at HW and he is a bit on the short side for that.

that was the unknown guy no2 of team, and that happened a
couple of months before beijing. and don't get me wrong!
i wish him all the best and comparing to bum like povetkin
he is great, but still, germany gonna make him worse.
uli wagner, mikael timm, fritz zdunek are the best german
trainers and they are sh/t. ive seen a 100s of fights and
didn't heard at least 1 good advance between rounds.
especially they just grabbing money by using base that amateurs
trainers made a wile before. Zdunek is even making them
worse.
rahim will be looking like tyson in debut, but i am afraid
that there will be because of the physicall progress only.

The number 2 guy of which team? Team Russia? Are you speaking of Romanchuk? Romanchuk was a much beter boxer than Chakhiev and should have been the one going for the olympics anyway, also, Romanchuk wasn't exactly unknown. Also, I haven't heard of anything of Romanchuk beating him right before Beijing. People have told me that Romanchuk won their selection sparring, but I doubt they had a match that soon before the olympics. Romanchuk did RSCO him in the previous Russian championships, but it wasn't a KO, just a 20 points outclassed difference.

Which boxer are you referring to?

That was 2006 though, Chakhkiev beat Romanchuk in the 2007 Russian Championships, 2006 is hardly "right before the Olympics" or "months before the Olympics" (What is it now anyway?)

I think the guy is confusing him with someone else, maybe Timurziev, who had the injury stoppage against Zhang Zhilei not too long before the Olympics. Otherwise I would still hear some more info about that supposed KO, that's news to me.

Very good news! His roughouse style seems to be made for the pros.At times he looks like a German tank/panzer inside the ring. His foes at the pros need a very telling bazooka to stop this durable tank.

A pity that Zuev wont turn pro!!!!!
His style is made for the pros,too.His chin is his weak spot,but damn he for sure is fun to watch...........like Chakhiev.

Who floored Chakhkiev? Can you list the name. I think you might be confusing Chakhkiev with Timurziev. Again, Chakhkiev is a rock hard fighter. He does not have a poor chin. Quite the opposite.

Also, saying Chakhkiev will be better than Povektin, because Povetkin is a bum is odd. Povetkin is a top ten fighter who has been moved at a quick pace.

I just noticed that part about Povetkin. Chakhiev and Povetkin are in different leagues, in terms of both achievements, skills and natural ability! If Chakhiev can achieve what Povetkin has/will, he would have done well.

Exclamation Re: Rakhim Chakhkiev turning pro

It's done, Universum has signed Chakhkiev

Apparently he will fight at Cruiserweight for now.
