Review: 2014-10-24, some tough exchanges between Rakhim Chakhkiev and Giacobbe Fragomeni but it is not enough to get three stars. Rakhim Chakhkiev entered this fight with a pro boxing record of 19-1-0 (14 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.9 cruiserweight in the world (currently the #1 in this division is Marco Huck), he suffered his only defeat in 2013 when he faced Krzysztof Wlodarczyk (=Wlodarczyk vs Chakhkiev); after that bout he won three fights, the last one against Santander Silgado (=Chakhkiev vs Silgado).
His opponent, Giacobbe Fragomeni, has a record of 32-4-2 (13 knockouts) and he entered as the No.40 in the same weight class but he is 45 years old (14 years older than Chakhkiev); he also lost against Wlodarczyk last year (=Wlodarczyk vs Fragomeni 3). Chakhkiev vs Fragomeni is valid for the vacant EBU (European) cruiserweight title; undercard of Alexander Povetkin vs Carlos Takam. Watch the video and rate this fight!
