Khytrov: I’ll do my best to knock him out

In the opening bout of tonight’s ShoBox telecast, former amateur sensation Ievgen “Ukrainian Lion” Khytrov (7-0, 7 KOs) will take on Maurice “The Natural” Louishomme (8-0-1, 4 KOs) in an eight-round middleweight bout. Thus far in his career, Khytrov is showing all the signs of being a major star in boxing.

Ievgen Khytrov: “Training camp was great. We were sparring with Daniel Jacobs, Luis Collazo, Marcus Browne, the strongest guys in the division. We knew about this guy for about a week, but it doesn’t matter who I fight. I want to be champion of the world. I’ll do my best to knock him out. Fans want the knockout and I’ll try to give them a knockout. I can’t predict the future, but I’m going to do everything possible to get it done.”

Maurice Louishomme: “I have been training the past 10 years for this fight. I have constantly stayed busy in the gym with the hopes of being able to get this opportunity. My biggest strength in this fight will be my jab. I really utilize my jab well. I am looking to set the entire fight up with the jab, and then look for openings with my right hand and uppercuts. This is an eight round fight. I am looking to box, move and avoid his big shots. If I can catch him and hurt him I am definitely going to jump on him for the knockout.
