Ryder Faces Fearsome Belarussian Puncher

One of the fights on the undercard of the show at the Copper Box Arena could prove to be one of the fights of the night.

In a WBA International middleweight title clash our very own John Ryder comes face to face with an opponent who, on previous visits to these shores, has caused something akin to pandemonium.

Ryder will be taking on the Belarussian puncher Sergey Khomitsky who, on his last two visits to the United Kingdom, has flattened the huge prospect that was Adam Etches and then dishing out the same punishment to Frank Buglioni.

The Islington fighter knows he has to show maximum concentration if he’s not going to suffer the same fate knowing one big punch could put a serious dent in his boxing aspirations.

Talking about the forthcoming bout, Ryder has remarked,

“There’s a fear factor for me in this fight, 100 per cent.

“I’m doing things majorly differently to how I’ve approached fights before and that element of fear is in me as I know what Khomitsky is capable of. Take no notice of his age, the last thing to go in a fighter is their power, he’ll have that until the end, so I know that this is a dangerous fight.

“He’s showed power at Super-Middleweight and then shown that he can make Middleweight and keep that power. He takes his opportunities where he can, whether they are at 168lbs or 160lbs, but he’s had plenty of time to prepare for this fight so I expect him to be at his best.”


It’s the kind of intriguing clash that will keep the punters on the edge of their seats and it will be interesting to see if Ryder can get the verdict on the night.
