Radivoke Kalajdzic Ready To Face Sullivan Barrera, Eyes Dmitrii Bivol Next

'Hot Rod' ready to make statement against Sullivan Barrera on ProBox TV, eyes Bivol next

Light heavyweight contender 'Hot Rod' Radivoke Kalajdzic is setting out to make a statement against fellow world title challenger Sullivan Barrera this Wednesday night on ProBox TV.

Kalajdzic returned to the ring last year, stopping the tough Mickey Ellison, and is fully focused on Sullivan Barrera as a championship fight looms for the winner.

'Hot Rod' opened up about his regional title clash this Wednesday night, "Barrera is a quality fighter, I have a lot of respect for him. He has competed at the top level and fought the best out there.

"I haven't overlooked this fight for one second, this is light heavyweight boxing, anyone can get caught cold, however, I believe I can stop Sullivan Barrera this Wednesday and put the division on notice again."

'Hot Rod' joined ProBox TV in 2023, and has already reinstated himself in the world ratings, and now sets his sights on challenging 175 champion Dmitry Bivol.

The Tampa based light heavyweight discussed a potential showdown with Bivol. 

He said, "Look, I have all my focus on Barrera right now, and want to show my class against him on Wednesday night, but I will leave it down to my team Ryan Rickey and ProBox TV to push for the Bivol fight.

"We were close to making that fight last year but he chose the easier fight with Lyndon Arthur. That makes no odds to me we can fight next or I can work myself into a mandatory position. 

"Whatever we need to do to make the fight with Bivol, we will after I make a statement this Wednesday against Barrera."
