By Daniel Cloutier

MONTRÉAL - The Montrealer Russian heavyweight Arslanbek Makhmudov will be back in action at the Montréal Casino Saturday evening. Makhmudov, who has a perfect pro record (13-0-0, 13 wins by KO or TKO), will challenge the Polish Mariusz Wach (36-7-0) in a NABA and NABF North American championship.

“It’s a good challenge for me,” said Makhmudov at the weigh in. “Wach is taller than me and has more experience than me in pro boxing.”

Makhmudov is 6’5’’, and Wach is 6’7’’.

Makhmudov said: “I am ready for 10 rounds of action, but I will try to hurt Wach and stop him before the 10th round.”

The Machmudov’s trainer, the Montrealer Marc Ramsay, said: “Arslanbek got a good preparation. During the training camp, Arslanbek told me that it was a great challenge for him, considering that Wach is tall and experimented.”

Wach said: “I know that Makhmudov is undefeated, but I like this kind of challenge. I am positive I will get out of the ring in the winning shoes. I am ready for this challenge. I fought fighters stronger than Makhmudov in the past. I fought Wladimir Klitschko, Alexander Povetkin and Dillian White.” But Wach lost against these three fighters.
