MAIN EVENTS SIGNS MIKHAYELNKO
Press Release: Main Events has signed yet another Russian boxer, Dmitry "The Mechanic" Mikhaylenko (17-0, 6 KO's). The 28 year-old junior middleweight is from Gelendzhik, Russia. He made his U.S. debut this past Saturday in Atlantic City, NJ, defeating Sechew Powell via eight-round unanimous decision.
Mikhaylenko is managed by Egis Klimas, who also manages two current world titlists, Sergey Kovalev and Vasyl Lomachenko. Klimas said, "Dmitry is an action fighter and very interesting to watch. You never get bored when he is in the ring. He throws a lot of punches and always busy. I can see him becoming a champion in 147-pound division." Dmitry is co-promoted by Titov Promotions.
