China’s Zhang faces Ukraine’s Rudenko

November 28, 2019

Chinese heavyweight Zhilei Zhang (20-0, 16 KOs), 36, will face late substitute Andriy Rudenko (32-4, 20 KOs), 36, of Ukraine, in a 10-rounder on Matchroom Boxing’s “Monte Carlo Showdown” card Saturday (DAZN) in Monte Carlo.

Rudenko is coming off a decision loss to Agit Kabayel for the European title. Zhang was slated to face Sergey Kuzmin but he withdrew last week with a foot injury.

Russians Alexander Besputin and Radzhab Butaev meet for a vacant secondary welterweight title in the main event.
