Evgeny Tishchenko decided to change the weight category
Olympic boxing champion Evgeny Tishchenko (3-0, 2 ko) will replace the weight category and continue to perform in the first heavy weight (up to 90.7 kg).
“I’m planing to go down to 91 kg for this fight, in the future I will fight in the cruisers. I realized I was too small for heavy weight. In Amateurs I performed in the first heavy category, here I will be more competitive, here the goals are closer and the goals are more real. Let's move here. Perhaps in the future I will be heavyweight. "
Remind that Tishchenko will hold the next fight on February 22 in Yekaterinburg at the RCC Boxing Promotions tournament. Who will be the rival of the Russian boxer is still unknown. Earlier, Nikolai Popov is the team coach, said that Eugene will hold from three to four fights, after which he will begin the way to the World Champion title.
