Legendary trainer Freddie Roach has arrived in Donetsk, Ukraine to prepare WBA welterweight champion Viacheslav Senchenko (30-0, 20 KOs) for his August 30 defense against Charlie Jose Navarro (18-3, 13 KOs) in the big boxing show at Lenin Square, Donetsk.
While in town, Roach looked at the Donbass Arena, home of the Shakhtar Donetsk football club. “I’ve been at many modern stadiums, but Donbass Arena is the best from what I’ve seen,” said Roach. “From everywhere there’s a fine review of a field. There is nothing here that I wouldn’t like. Everything is simply perfect!”
