WBA super-middleweight Champion Fedor Chudinov says he will bring more heartache to British fans when he destroys Frank Buglioni on Saturday September 26 at the SSE Arena, Wembley.
Chudinov watched George Groves slump to a third world title defeat when he lost to WBC World Champion Badou Jack at the weekend and says he will do the same to London star Buglioni.
The 27-year-old from Serpukhov stunned the boxing world when he defeated German great Felix Sturm in his backyard in May and wants to demolish Buglioni in front of his home crowd.
And the Russian hitman has targeted more Brits once he’s finished off Buglioni with IBF Champion James DeGale on his hitlist as well as aiming to lure former four-time world champion Carl Froch out of retirement.
Chudinov, who’s annihilated 10 of his 13 opponents with seven coming inside five rounds, says he’ll have too much firepower for Buglioni and with boxing legend Roy Jones Jr. now training him he’ll be unbeatable.
“It is coming close to fight time now and Buglioni will be starting to realise what he has got himself into,” said Chudinov.
“He must have seen Groves’ weak challenge for the world title at the weekend and must be questioning his own credential to be challenging for a world title, he is out of his depth and he won’t be able to swim fast enough from the shark who will rip into him.
“I have fought in front of thousands of German fans and beat their hero in his own country so coming to England and doing the same to Buglioni is no problem for me, no problem at all.
“The great Roy Jones is now in my corner and we are now an unbeatable team. At his peak he was an unbeatable force in the super-middleweight division and I’m honoured that he’s in my corner. We have Buglioni figured out.
“When you look at Buglioni fight he is far too easy to hit, Sergey Khomitsky smashed him inside six rounds, I have a far higher knockout percentage and I deliver much much harder punches, he’ll be knocked out.
“I have trained like a machine for this fight, I will set an incredible pace for Buglioni that he cannot match. I have the strength and power to remove him when I’m ready.
“Groves is finished and Buglioni will be finished, then I want to conquer Britain. What British fighters are left? James DeGale? I would destroy him and if Carl Froch wants to recapture his old belt then I will fight him, no question.”
