The Ukrainian Hulk, heavyweight Igor Shevadzutskiy (10-0) faces the biggest test of his career when he takes on Martin Bakole (18-1) on April 22 in Rzeszow, Poland.
Shevadzutskiy's promoter, EC Boxing in Hamburg, announced the fight earlier today (March 20). The bout will be featured on the upcoming co-promotion between Knockout Promotions and Boxxer, which is topped by the Lukasz Rozanski vs Alen Babic fight for the WBC Bridgerweight title.
Bakole beat Olympic gold medal winner Tony Yoka in his last fight almost a year ago, while Shevadzutskiy outscored American veteran Kevin Johnson in August of last year in what probably was the biggest win of his career this far.
As for his nickname, take a look at Shevadzutskiy's physical dimensions and you get it.
The fight against Bakole had been made for some time, but has been postponed a few times.
