In the early hours of March 30th in the USA, Ukrainian middleweight boxer (up to 69.85 kg) Serhii Bogachuk (24-1, 23 KOs) clashed with American Brian Mendosa (22-4, 16 KOs) for the WBC "interim" championship title.

Following twelve rounds, Bogachuk claimed a unanimous decision victory and captured the title.

What's Next?

Bogachuk is now the WBC "interim" champion at middleweight. Serhii hopes for a bout against the new full-fledged champion – Sebastian Fundora, but he remains skeptical.

Fundora is targeted by Terence Crawford and Errol Spence. The former due to his "super champion" status at WBO in a lighter category, and the latter simply because he decided so. Spence declared his interest in this fight and even traveled to Las Vegas to enter the ring after Sebastian's victory.

However, the top of the WBC rankings is filled with incredibly strong boxers, so Bogachuk will not be lacking challenges.
