Default The Russians are coming..

CW:

Rakhim Chakhkiyev - Olympic games gold medal winner. Still has the potential to rebound after a loss to Krzysztof Wlodarczyk in a modern day classic in only his 17th fight.

Grigory Drozd - Hardly any amateur pedigree but recently defeated the highly touted pole Mateusz Masternak. About to challenge Krzysztof Włodarczyk for his WBC belt.

Denis Lebedev - Current WBA Champion. Scheduled to fight the unbeaten pole Paweł Kołodziej in September.

LHW:

Sergey Kovalev - Current WBO champion. About to fight to unify the division in only his 27th fight.

Artur Beterbiyev - Gold medal winner @ the World & European championships. Currently 5-0 as a pro & scheduled to fight former IBF champion Tavoris Cloud... Incredible!

Egor Mekhontsev - Gold medal winner @ the Olympics games. World & European championship gold medal winner also.

MW:

Gennady Golovkin - Current WBA champion. World championships gold medal winner & olympic silver medallist. (Father is Russian hence his inclusion)

Dmitry Chudinov - Current WBA interim champion.

Matt Korobov - Two time gold medal winner @ the WAC's. Currently 24-0 & scheduled to fight Peter Quillin for the WBO belt.

I suspect this is just the start too! Any Russian prospects you are keeping an eye on?

Surely the vast majority of these guys are guys that have already made it.

They're not "coming", they're "here", most of them are currently or are former titlists.

The average age of those guys is 30+

Thumbs up Re: The Russians are coming..

I was impressed with Vasily Lepikhin's last fight. Very tall light heavyweight. Did he sign with Main Events? I wouldn't mind seeing him back on US TV.

Maxim Vlasov I would throw in there at 168/175. Pretty solid guy. Also, like Lepikhin, he towers over most fighters at 6"3"1/2.

Dmitry Kudryashov is another Russian banger at CW. 14-0 with 14 knockouts. Heard he didn't look good in his last outing.

Khasan Baysangurov / Only 17 years old and 6-0 as pro. Big prospect
Apti Davtaev / Young heavyweight prospect
Vladimir Tereshkin / Little bit inactive, but a nice HW as well

LOL You took the thread title a bit too literally... Only a plum like you would get all bent up over something like that!

The thread is intended to HL the recent break-through of Russian fighters wether they have made it already or not!

I appreciate you going to the effort of using correct punctuation on my threads but have a wank before you post next time.

Provodnikov, Pirog, Gradovich & Povetkin are 4 more too! Looking very healthy for Russian boxing
