Malawians international boxing star Issac Chilemba will on this Saturday 13th December come face to face with Russian Kubich at an event to take place in Greece.
This is a non title cruiserweight division fight that will be staged at Aekembpioy sport arena in Thessaloniki, Greece.
Chilemba, 32-year-old South African based boxer: said This fight is just a comeback non-title fight and it is scheduled for eight rounds.
“I’m just doing this one at cruiserweight, but since he [Kubich] is too heavy for me, my next fight thereafter, will be back to lightweight. The guy I’m fighting [Kubich], apparently weighs around 100 kgs [kilogrammes] and he drops down to 90kgs which is cruiserweight limit and I’m currently at 84kgs, which is my normal weight.
“So, I’ll be fighting him at that weight and he will probably be close to 95kgs on the night of the fight. It’s okey for me as I know he isn’t a threat,” said the former world champion whose record stands at 25 wins (10 KOs), seven losses (one KO) and two draws.
Kubich, 33, boasts 16 fights from which he has won 10 (six KOs), lost five (one KO) and drawn once.He turned professional in 2012.
