The WBA World Super Middleweight title will be up for grabs on July 24, 2015 at Wembley Arena in London. Fedor Chudinov will be defending his title and his unbeaten record against Frank Buglioni.
The team fighters had plenty of experience but right now Chudinov appears to be the clear favorite to win. Chudinov has -375 odds from SBG Global to win the bout. Buglioni is only listed at +285 to win this bout but is expected to be an interesting competitor to take a look at.
How Chudinov Looks
Fedor Chudinov is an orthodox fighter based out of Russia. He has a perfect 13-0 record with ten knockouts.
Chudinov has fought most of his bouts in Russia and this match will be his first in the United Kingdom. Chudinov has competed in the super middleweight class for years and just recently won the WBA title. He won in May through a split decision against Felix Sturm; this was his most recent bout to this point. He has also held WBC CISBB and WBA Fedecaribe titles in the past. His bout against Sturm is actually the first time that Chudinov had been challenged in some way as he did not get a unanimous decision to win this bout.
Checking On Buglioni
Frank Buglioni is expected to be a hometown favorite for this bout. Buglioni, who is also an orthodox fighter, is from the Enfield region of London, a spot that is not too far away from the Wembley region. Buglioni has a 16-1-1 record with twelve knockouts.
Buglioni has held all of his bouts in the United Kingdom. He currently holds the WBO European Super Middleweight title. He has defended this title twice. He did win this belt one before but lost it in a bout with Sergey Khonmitsky in 2014. He has not lost a bout since and has held the title since this past November when he beat Andrew Robinson. However, his most recent bout in May was a draw against Lee Markham.
