A native of Ukraine claims the title fight – media


Fedor Cherkashin (21-0, 13 KOs), a native of Ukraine, a native of Ukraine, middleweight prospect Fedor Cherkashin (21-0, 13 KOs) confidently beat the “litmus test” of the division – Nathaniel Gallimore (22-6-1, 17 KOs) from Jamaica over the weekend.

The fighter received great press in the US. And this despite the fact that Cherkashin did not have a full-fledged training – he limited himself to a 3-week camp. Polish media report that already in the next fight, a native of Kharkov can enter the ring against the owner of the “temporary” WBC belt Dominican Carlos Adames (22-1, 17 KOs).

“Cherkashin looked like a well-formed, mature boxer,”
reasoning commentator Janusz Pinder. He controlled the course of the fight. Despite the fact that Gallimore is a very tough fighter, but in the confrontation with Fedor, he looked absolutely helpless. Without a doubt, Cherkashin benefited from sparring in the United States – he got access to cool sparring partners.

“He has clearly reached an even higher level than what he demonstrated in Poland. He was sure of himself. Yes, I really liked Cherkashin’s performance. I know that he is already a candidate for top fights. On the sidelines discuss possible opponents. Of those whom I heard, Adames figured, ”says Pindera.

Adames, first in December 2021, in the WBC eliminator, upset the Ukrainian Sergey Derevyanchenko, and then, in the fight for the vacant interim title, did not notice the resistance of the Mexican Juan Macias Montiel.

Immediately after the victory over Gallimore, Cherkashin declared: “I’m ready for the big stage.”
