On Saturday, December 7th, RJJ Boxing Russia presents its first professional boxing event streamed live on UFC Fight Pass from RCC Martial Arts Academy in Ekaterinburg, Russia. Russian cruiserweight Alexey Egorov (9-0, 7 KOs) will be showcased in the ten-round main event against a Ukrainian opponent, Sergey Radchenko (7-4, 2 KOs). Egorov, the European and Russian national amateur champion, stopped Lateef Kayode (21-3) last year in his most notable clash. In the eight-round, co-feature, the Ukraine's Mukhamad Shekhov (6-0, 3 KOs) takes on Panama's Juan Aaron Suarez (15-6-3, 4 KOs) in another cruiserweight bout.
Living legend and RJJ Boxing Promotions co-founder, Roy Jones, Jr., is wildly popular in Russia. "Roy is in Russia half the year promoting what we are doing there," CEO and co-founder Keith Veltre said. "Roy has been in Russia for a while promoting our December 7th show. As a USA promoter, conducting business there is extremely rare and a privilege. We will be working with our partners to bring Russian fighters to American soil, so that they can compete at the highest level. We plan to promote multiple shows in Russia throughout the year on UFC FIGHT PASS, which will also be televised in Russia on UFC TV Russia."
