Tishchenko has a new rival for the next fight
The rival of the Olympic champion Evgeniy Tishchenko (3-0, 2ko) at the RCC Boxing Promotions tournament in February has been replaced. Instead of the ex-champion of the Czech Republic Vatslav Paysar (13-7), he will meet with the ex-IBO champion Thomas Ostuidzen (28-2-2, 16ko).
Fight will take place on February 22 in Yekaterinburg in the main card of tournament. The eight-round fight will be held in the first heavyweight division. Earlier, Tishchenko’s coach said that the Russian boxer is going to have from three to four fights in 2019 and will begin the way to the world champion title in one of the top boxing organizations.
Note that Ostuidezen should have met at the same tournament with Yuri Kashinsky, but the Russian heavyweight was injured in preparation for the fight and will not be able to go to ring.
