The vacant WBO Inter-Continental Middleweight Title

BoxNation cameras are in Ekaterinburg, Russia on Saturday 10th November for another stacked live card.

Headlining the bill is the vacant WBO Inter-Continental Middleweight Title bout between prospect Artem Chebotarev and rugged Argentinian veteran Javier Francisco Maciel.

Russian Chebotarev (5-0, 4 KOs) only turned professional 18 months ago, but is being fast-tracked to World Titles and a win this weekend will earn him a top 15 ranking with the WBO.

Before embarking on his professional journey Chebotarev enjoyed a successful amateur career which included a European gold in 2010 and a World Championship bronze medal three years later.

He also competed in the 2016 Olympics, but lost in the Round of 16.

Just last month the 30-year-old blasted out Brazilian Carmelito De Jesus inside three rounds and will be hoping to make it a quick KO again this weekend.

Maciel (33-7-2, 23 KOs) went the distance with former World Title challenger Willie Monroe Jr in August and should extend the home fighter.

Four years ago he pushed former British Super-Welterweight champion Brian Rose all the way, dropping a split decision in Sheffield.
