Vladimir Belujsky, is set to face the well fancied, Manny Bique on October 7th in Dublin.
At the press conference hosted by Red Corner Promotions, promoter Jonathan Graham commented, that ‘he would not fancy being Vlad on October 7th.’
While Bique added that it was a sign that Belujsky was a no show at the press conference.
Although, Belujsky had already scheduled a college lecture that day after a busy finish to a tough camp.
‘I decided that going to college would be more beneficial for me rather than going up to Dublin (from Cork), to talk nonsense. I’ll do my talking with my hands on Saturday’.
Belujsky, who is currently training down in Cork with Luke Thomas, has had a brilliant camp thus far, with local sparring coming in the shape of world title challenger, Mike Perez, and Gary Spike O Sullivan. While he also mixed it with top amateur prospect Tony Browne and former Irish title challenger, Stevie Collins Jr. While Bique added that it was a sign that Belujsky was a no show.
However, with two weeks to go to fight night, Belujsky headed across to The UK to step up his efforts in preparation for October 7th.
Slovakian born, Belujsky sparred IBO World Champion, and son of former world champion, Chris Eubank Jr.
‘It was a great opportunity to share the ring with a top fighter like Eubank. He was helping me with my own preparation, and I was helping him for his own fight’
Also occurring on the trip was a visit to the world famous, BXR Gym in London. Owned by a consortium led by the current unified heavyweight world champion, Anthony Joshua.
Belujsky added: ‘The BXR Gym is the perfect location for any elite boxers and those aspiring to reach that level. The facilities are second to none’
Conor Slater of Assassin Boxing, commented: ‘Vladimir is really hard working kid. He has a lot of talent, and is always learning. I saw him a few times sparring Eubank, and I was very impressed, as too were the likes of Ronnie Davies and Chris himself. Mixing at an elite level can only be beneficial’.
