CHAKHKIEV MIGHT FACE CODRINGTON

13/04/2012 - 19.40.46

 

It´s not officially confirmed but rising cruiser Rakhim "the Machine" Chakhkiev might face former Contender participant [Jaidon Codrington] April 21 in Schwerin, Germany, on Universum´s big promotion headed by [Karoly Balzsay]´s defence of the WBA regular supermiddle title against [Dimitri Sartison].

Codrington, 20-2, is perhaps most famous for his losses to [Allan Green] and [Sakio Bika] and has been inactive since 2010. He´s never fought a fullblown cruiser but is likely to give Chakhkiev, Olympic Gold Medallist and 12-0, a good fight. It´s difficult to see him win though as "the Machine" appears to be the real thing.
