By Alexey “Oscar” Potapov

Returning from his upset loss to Russian Denis Grachev, former NABF light heavyweight champion Ismayl Sillakh (17-1, 14 KOs) returns to the ring on August 19 at the Club Sportlife in Kiev, Ukraine. Ismail is debuting as a cruiserweight and his opponent will be journeyman Igor Pylypenko (3-12, 0 KOs). In preparation for the fight, Sillakh trained at the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas. This will be the first fight for Sillakh in Ukraine. The fight will take place on the undercard of WBC International Silver cruiserweight champion Dmytro Kucher (17-0, 13 KOs) against former EBU (European) cruiserweight Jean Marc Monrose (25-5, 15 KOs).
