Bogachuk returns, the opponent is a southpaw beaten by Khitrov from the USA


Ukrainian puncher Sergey “El Flaco” Bogachuk (20-1, 20 KOs) will return to the ring on November 3 in Los Angeles – almost 14 months after the last fight. Opponents of the slugger with a heavy blow – 31-year-old
Aaron Cowley (16-4-1, 7 KOs) from the USA.

The fight in the 1st middleweight (up to 69.9 kg) is designed for 10 rounds, and how long it will last is unknown: the Californian left-hander lost four times, but never ahead of schedule. Moreover, he lost three times in his last four fights, and all three times – by a separate decision of the judges.

The names of the American’s past opponents will not tell you anything, except for one. In the spring of 2015, he lost by unanimous decision to Ukrainian middleweight Evgeny Khitrov. (Cowley then stated that “there is nothing special about his striking power.”)

The vacant WBC Continental American title will be at stake.

Recall that in the first days of the total invasion of the Russian Federation into Ukraine, Bogachuk decided to stay at home in Vinnitsa and help in the fight against the horde of Russian barbarians: the fight scheduled for March 25 in Canada against the local Mikael Zyusky (35-2, 23 KOs) was disrupted.
