To Russia with love for big bad John

HORNDON-based boxer John McDermott has flown off to Russia to spar with the WBA heavyweight champion, Alexander Pevotkin.

The former olympic gold medallist is less renowned than the Klitschko brothers but none the less has a considerable reputation as he is undefeated in 24 fights.

Many thought John’s career was at an end when he lost to David Price earlier this year but in true journeyman style, John continues to ply his trade around the country and now around the world.

Pevotkin is training for a title defence against Hasim Rahman next month.
