On March 29, two of boxing’s true hotbeds will combine for one exciting night of world-class boxing: Ukraine and Canada.
Three of Ukraine’s top contenders will be in action at the Mattamy Athletic Centre in downtown Toronto, Ontario.
In the main event, super welterweight standout Stanyslav Skorokhod makes his long-awaited return to Canada. Skorokhod (17-2, 12 KOs) was a competitor in ESPN’s prestigious Boxcino tournament, and had a lengthy and storied amateur career in his homeland, fighting in the same amateur system that has produced Vasyl Lomachenko and Oleksandr Usyk. The 29-year old is coming off a controversial split decision loss to Aram Amirkhanyan last June in a bout many observers believe he won clearly. Now, he returns to Toronto, the site of two of his most thrilling performances—knockout wins over Fernando Silva and Nestor Garcia.
Ukrainian heavyweight prospect Oleksandr Teslenko will be in action in his adopted hometown of Toronto. The monstrous power puncher, who is promoted by Lou Dibella, made waves in 2018 with wins on Broadway Boxing, and on the undercard of Stevenson-Gvozdyk. With an amateur pedigree of 247 fights (with 224 wins), Teslenko is considered to be Canada’s—and Ukraine’s—possible best shot at a world heavyweight title in the near future.
Finally, middleweight Oleksandr Voytenko (1-0-0, 1KOs) of Edmonton, who won his pro debut by TKO2 over Juan Antonio Cruz Gonzalez (2-1-1, 1KOs) of Mexico will energize the night with its lighting strike alike punches.
The undercard will be rounded out by local favourite Nick Fantauzzi, Ross Mylet, and the professional debut of former Canadian national amateur champion Amanda Galle.
