2008 Olympic heavyweight gold medalist and amateur standout Rakhim Chakhkiev has inked a promotional contract with Universum Box-Promotion. Chakhkiev will join the training group of famed Universum trainer Michael Timm at the Universum Gym in Hamburg, and will campaign as a pro in the cruiserweight division. “We simply had to get this Olympic champion,” said Universum Promoter Klaus-Peter Kohl. “With Rakhim Chakhkiev we have a hard-hitting southpaw who boxes very attractively with a technically excellent and aggressive style. In several conversations, Rakhim Chakhkiev persuaded us with his positive personal qualities, his unconditional will and his readiness for duty. We see in him a special boxer with big hopes and a lot of potential in the cruiserweight division.“

    For 18 years,® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.

    Please consider helping out. You’re not obligated to, but even a $1 pledge would really help. And if we reach our goal, we plan to upgrade our server and maybe even nuke the ads altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?
