Hitz Boxing: Russian heavyweight Andrey Fedosov relocates to Chicago
Bobby Hitz announced today that Russian heavyweight prospect Andrey Fedosov (24-3, 19 KOs) has relocated to Chicago and will train full time in the United States. In June, Fedosov, who hails from Shuya, Russia, impressed American boxing fans in a televised fight against Bryant Jennings (18-0, 10 KOs) which Hitz felt was stopped prematurely.
“Andrey is an impressive fighter who has a legit shot at a title. Chicago has a large Russian community and I am confident that his fan base will grow as a result,” said Hitz. “He would like another shot at Jennings because that fight was stopped early by a ref who couldn’t communicate with him. Whenever Spanish speaking boxers fight they make sure the ref speaks Spanish, they don’t give that same courtesy to Eastern European fighters like Andrey or Donatas Bondas.”
As Fedosov, who was recently married, settles into the Windy City he is ready to make an impact on the local boxing scene.
“I have made Chicago my new home, but I have to clean out my backyard which starts with me beating Mike Mollo and that bum Spzilka, who will never want to visit Chicago from Poland when I am done with him” said Fedosov. “I have a lot of respect for my Hitz stablemate Fres Oquendo, but I know I must challenge him too.”
Fedosov believes a rematch with Jennings is in order. Following their bout in June 2013 many boxing writers characterized Fedosov as giving Jennings a scare, conversely many said that Artur Spzilka (16-1, 12 KOs) was outclassed by Jennings.
“Bryant is a great boxer but I know that I will win a rematch,” said Fedosov. “I didn’t get any sparing rounds in before this fight. On the evening of the bout I wasn’t allowed to follow my normal warm up routine because they told me they couldn’t find my gloves and got them to me at the last minute. I know what was going on. Jennings is lucky I got cut early because I would have won that fight.”
Hitz, also promotes WBA Fedelatin and NABA heavyweight champ “Fast’ Fres Oquendo (36-7, 23 KOs) of Chicago, Brian Houston (1-0-1, 1 KO) of Omaha, NE and newcomer Nick Asberry (2-0, 2 KOs) from Waukegan, IL.
On Friday, February 28, Hitz returns to Hammond, Indiana’s The Venue for its wildly popular “Fight Night at the Horseshoe” as it partners with Banner Promotions for a card to be featured on ESPN2′s “Friday Night Fights.” Earlier in the month boxing legend “Iron” Mike Tyson hits The Venue stage for “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth” on Saturday, February 8.
