Shivadzutsky must face Yoka Conqueror Bakole!


“Ukrainian Hulk” Igor Chivadzutsky faces a big task in his 11th pro fight!

A difficult task for Igor Chivadzutsky: the “Ukrainian structure” meets Martin Bakul

Erol Celan, the newest heavyweight on the Hamburg-based European Boxing Federation team, will return to the ring on April 22 in Poland, on the undercard of the WBC World Championship between Alen Babic and Lukas Rozanski.

The opponent of the 32-year-old Schwadzutsky, who has not lost in ten matches, will be none other than Martin Bakul! The Congolese, who lives in the UK, overtook Olympic champion Tony Yoka last May and caused quite an upset. Bakul achieved his 18th win in 19 bouts as a professional boxer. The ECB man travels to Poland by defeating former World Championship rival Kevin Johnson after defeating gatekeeper Kamil Sokolowski. Since then, Schivadzutsky has been in constant demand as a sparring partner, only recently warming up with Tony Yoka.

The event, organized by BOXXER and Knockout Promotions, takes place near Shevadzutskiy’s Ukrainian homeland. “I feel good and have been training for a while. I hope to have the support of my countrymen in my next fight,” said the heavyweight, who has been living in Hamburg for a few months. .

“I have emphasized many times in the past that we do not want to take things easy on our boys. It is important that the level of opponents rise, because only in this way they grow as boxers. Igor has been training since last year and certainly does not go into battle without preparation, ”promoter Errol Celan declared.

The duel against the current No. 16 in the Independent World Rankings was originally supposed to take place in January! “The fight against Bakul was postponed several times. Since then, we had to apply for visas again and again, which of course ended because the fight was to take place in Great Britain. We are glad that we are now competing in Poland, near Igor’s home country.”
