Now that all four heavyweight championships are held by fighters born in the former Soviet Union, it seems likely that a heavyweight title fight may soon be held in Russia, with new champ Oleg Maskaev talking about such a fight taking place in Moscow next January.
But, will it be for no money? Will the all-Russian crowd inexplicably start rooting for the American? Will that American then make an inspiring, "if I can change" speech? Did I forget any other silly "Rocky IV" references?Posted by Stephen Silver at September 17, 2006 11:12 PM
