Young Russian heavyweight prospect Wladimir Tereshkin (14-0-1, 7 KOs) has signed the contract with Klitschko brothers’ K2 Promotions, Ukraine. Tereshkin is 6’6 tall, his weight is about 240 lbs and he feels comfortable in both orthodox and southpaw stances. “Wladimir Tereshkin is the future World heavyweight champion. Being only 24 he has 14 victories with 7 KOs and one draw in 15 bouts. Our plan is very simple – we tune him up after a long break and proceed with facing the best heavyweights in the world. I anticipate that within the next couple of years Wladimir will get his chance to fight for the world title,” said K2 General Manager Alexander A. Krassyuk.
In July, Tereshkin was invited to WBO, WBA, IBF and IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko’s training camp as the southpaw sparring partner when Klitschko was getting prepared for Tony Thompson. He impressed Klitschko with his skills and again was invited to the camp this fall, then Tereshkin helped Wladimir (as an orthodox fighter) to prepare for Wach.
“Wladimir is a very gifted sportsman he is one of my best sparring partners. He has a very precious talent – he fights both in Orthodox and Southpaw stances. I truly consider him to be one of the biggest Russian heavyweight prospects,” noted Klitschko.
