Default Yevhen Khytrov Pro Career

The 2011 World Amateur Champion and frighteningly hard punching Ukrainian Middleweight Yevhen Khytrov has unexpectedly turned pro. His debut will be December 18th in NY on a Dmitry Salita undercard in a 8 round 168lb fight. He'll be working with Buddy McGirt and signed with little known promoter Fight Promotions.

He won his Gold medal by beating 2012 Olympic Champion Ryoto Murata and scored a KO victory over 2013 World Amateur Champion Alimkhanuly earlier this year among his notable victories. I honestly have never seen an amateur boxer score legitimate knockdows and knockouts against fellow world class compitition as often as Khytrov and that includes Golovkin or Kovalev. The only other guy who was similar is Artur Beterbiev who is a 2-0 pro LHW fighting out of Montreal with GYM now. Youtube his fights with Murata and Juratoni if you want a look.

Anyone have any info of Fight Promotions? Signing with such a minor promoter worries me a little as does working with McGirt tbh although hopefully Buddy can help raise his profile. In a perfect world i would want to see Yevhen working with Able Sanchez.

How is he going to understand Buddy McGirt? English is my first language and I have no idea what he is talking about half the time.

McGirt-"Give em' my jab, BABY"

Khytrov= "WHAT"? "He wants me to punch a baby'

This should be interesting.

Yeah I don't get how he fell into the hands of a small time promotion outfit like Salita's. Something a bit off there. Should be interesting to watch as they'll start him in NY's small venues, that could result in a very quick build up of his profile.

Just a hunch. Lots of Eastern Euro guys are going pro. Russia is starting to spend a lot of money on sporting events. The Klitschko vs Povetkin, and record setting expensive winter Olympics come to mind.

Khytrov won by 1st round TKO

Buddy McGirt isn't a good trainer. Khytrov should have chosen someone better like John David Jackson.

McGirt was an excellent boxer but i don't think he's a very good trainer either especially for a aggressive puncher like Khytrov. He was horrible with Adamek at LHW taking an aggressive swarmer and trying to turn him into a boxer which is what cost him the Dawson fight. Lets get Tomasz to try outboxing a taller faster guy from the outside genius plan Buddy, when he did pressure Chad in the last 3 rounds you saw the success he had.

Same goes for Salita being his promoter i hope the contract isn't for too long. Both those things have the potential to seriously hinder his career.

Abel Sanchez...

Like what he has done with GGG and he claims to be the impetus for Kovalev's style. Plus it would get Khytrov out of Brooklyn. Who in the Hell would want that place to be their based of operations?

I agree. Why pick McGirt? Go with Roach, or an offensive guy. Will have to catch the fight of this rising star.

Way too early to say if he's got the goods, have to wait and see. Still confused how he ended up with Salita.
