Kuziemski to face Michalkin

A clash between former light heavyweight title challenger Aleksy Kuziemski (18-1, 4 KOs) and unbeaten hot prospect Igor Michalkin (11-0, 7 KOs) has been added to the big May 22 “Universum Champions Night” card in Rostock featuring the WBA heavyweight title eliminator between former champ Ruslan Chagaev (25-1-1, 17 KOs) and Kali Meehan (35-3, 29 KOs), plus the first world title defense of WBC super featherweight champion Vitali Tajbert. “I’m very excited at this high-class fight,” said Universum VP Dietmar Poszwa said of the Kuziemski-Michalkin clash. “It’s a battle between old and young. Aleksy absolutely must win. It’s his last chance to fight again for a world title. Igor is very, very hungry and would like to get his first world title shot.”
