Rabchenko’s manager eyeing world title eliminator

Philippe Fondu manager of Sergey Rabchenko the European light-middleweight champion says his man could soon be in line to box for a version of the world title, this must be music to the ears of the Hatton Promotions fighter.

The European Boxing Union (EBU) has this week nominated Italy’s Emanuele Della Rosa to face the Ricky Hatton-trained Belarussian within the next six months.

And with both boxers ranked in top five by the WBC, Fondu feels that the match-up may well double up as a final eliminator for Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez’s 154lb crown.

“At this moment in time, it is difficult to say who will be the WBC world champion in nine months, as Saul Alvarez might face Floyd Mayweather, but some great opportunities are waiting for the winner of Rabchenko – Della Rosa,” Fondu told DAILY SPORT

“For Sergey a world title is the ultimate goal and I’m convinced that, with the support of Ricky Hatton, the sky is the limit”.
