Tereshkin was happy with his win in his debut and looks forward to only getting better in his quest for a world heavyweight title. "This was my first fight in the United States and I'm making the transition from European boxing to western style fighting. It is very different and will take time, but I feel like I'm headed in the right direction," said Tereshkin.
Trainer John Bray was very impressed with his new pupil's first outing and thought he did very well. "Well, you know, the kid did good. He won every second of every round and showed me some good things. We have some things to work on," stated Bray.
Bray also noted that, "he had Rabotte hurt three times, but didn't pull the trigger. We've only been working a month and we will have more time and continued sparring with Lance Whitaker, Malik Scott and Lionel Butler before his next outing and all that will change; I'm sure of that. I'll tell what though; this kid is special."
Catching up with his Co-Manager Alex Mezherovsky of Union Boxing Management he was also happy with his fighters outing. "It was his first time fighting in the United States and with it being on a Top Rank card, he was nervous. He did a great job and he is only 22 years old. He has a bright future ahead of him. I want to thank Bob Arum and Top rank Promotions for the opportunity of showcasing Vladimir on such a great card."
COY EVANS “UNLEASHES” THE POWER AND STOPS CHULE IN THREE IN SOUTH PHILLY
PHILADELPHIA (April 11, 2010)—This past Friday night at The Arena in South Philadelphia, Featherweight Coy Evans remained undefeated with an explosive third round stoppage over Morris Chule.
Evans of Philadelphia is now 8-0-1 with two wins coming by knockout. Both of those stoppages have come in the last three fights.
Evans dropped Chule twice in round two, first from a counter right that clearly hurt Chule. Towards the end of the frame, a series of hard right hands dropped Chule for a second time.
Evans showed lightning quick hand speed and a huge right knocked Chule out cold midway through round three and the fight was stopped immediately at the 1:51 mark of round three.
“It was a good fight”, said Evans.
“My corner just wanted me to stay calm and they said the knockout will calm and that’s what I did. I am happy and I have a great team with my promoter Greg Robinson, trainer Bozy Ennis and managers Moz Gonzalez and Eddie Woods plus Unleashed Power drink with River Edge Beverage Company. I know when I listen to my corner that I will be victorious”
“We are very happy”, said Greg Robinson of Power Productions.
“Coy is starting to come into his own. He is 3-0 with two knockouts since we signed him. This was another steppingstone towards a world title. I expect that Coy will be fighting for a regional title in the next twelve months.”
