By Daniel Cloutier

MONTRÉAL - The Montrealer Russian Arslanbek Makhmudov, a giant t of 6’6 and 260 pounds, mentioned to the promoter Camille Estephan, of The Eye of the Tiger Management Group in Montréal, that he is ready to fight for a world championship bout. Estpehan asked him he would accept to face the winner of the rematch between Deontay Wilder (42-0-1), from Alabama, and the British Tyson Fury (29-0-1), scheduled for February 22nd in Las Vegas. Makhmudov said yes.

Estephan mentioned that the winner of this rematch could receive $20 million to face Makhmudov in 2020. Obviously, this fight would be televised by a major network.

Last Saturday at Bell Centre in Montréal, Makhmudov (10-0-0) stayed undefeated in pro boxing, winning in the first round against Samuel Peter (38-9-0), from Las Vegas, in a NABF North American heavyweight championship.

Peter, who faced several big names, including the Ukrainian brothers Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko, suffered of his worst lost in pro boxing career against Makhmudov.

Makhmudov won his 10 pro bouts by KO or TKO. He will probably be ranked in the international boxing ratings in the next weeks.
