Russian in Germany next up for nomadic Vladimir Belujsky

It’s a Russian in Germany next for the nomadic Vladimir Belujsky [11(8)-3(1)-1].

‘The Slovak Rebel’ will man the away corner against Michael Schubov [16(9)-9(0)-1] at the Columbia Club, Tempelhof on June 19.

The Cork fighter, who has seen action in Poland, Belgium, Mexico, England and Spain over his career, was set for a return to Poland last month and was hoping to upset two-time Polish title challenger and a much more experienced foe in Marek Matyja in the same country he surprised Vladislav Bilous.

Injury prevented ‘Big Bad Vlad’ from competing in that fight but another away day awaits in the form of Schubov.

The German-based Russian’s record doesn’t make for as impressive readings as Matyja but his only defeats have come when he has stepped up, indeed his nine defeaters have a combined record of 103-5.

Still he is not a fighter Belujsky will fear and no doubt the big punching super middleweight will be targeting another win on the road.

Speaking to post his most recent win, a knockout victory in Belgium, the 25-year-old student had called for a step up and discussed going the Slovak title route.

Considering he saw two possible Sky Sports dates fall through and a big fight in America in 2020, Schudov may not have been the kind of fight he meant.

However, it’s not a keep busy journeyman fight for the Conor Slater managed super middle and provides the chance to impress.

The unknown and generally unrecognized Global Boxing Council world super middleweight title will be on the line.
