Undefeated Former Olympian Mytrofanov to Face Hernandez Apr 14th

On Saturday, April 14, Chicago’s newest promoter, Andrew Sobko, CEO of
Natex Boxing Promotions, will return to the Midwest Conference Center in
Northlake, Illinois, for his next installment of “The Chicago Rumble.”

A night of action-packed professional boxing featuring local and
international talent in competitive match-ups, the night’s main event will
pit Oxnard, California’s (via Chernigov, Ukraine) undefeated dynamo, and
2016 Olympian, Dmytro Mytrofanov (2-0, 1 KO) taking on dangerous Mexican
spoiler Vladimir “24K” Hernandez (10-2, 6 KOs) in an eight-round
middleweight showdown.

In the night’s six-round light heavyweight co-main event, undefeated Rustam
Tulaganov (1-0) of Oxnard, California (via Tashkent, Uzbekistan) will face
capable Chicago-based slugger Martez McGregor (5-1, 4 KOs).

*Tickets for “The Chicago Rumble” are priced at General Admission $50.00,
Seating ROW 1 $150.00 and Seating ROW 2-3 $90.00. VIP Tables are available
for $159 per seat, and Gold VIP Tables at $249.00 per seat. Both include
private seating and bar access. They are available for purchase online at *
at the door on fight night.*

In addition to his Olympic appearance two years ago, 28-year-old
Mytrofanov, won Ukrainian national amateur titles in 2008 and 2012 and a
bronze medal at the 2011 European Championships. He turned professional
late last year and now trains at Oxnard’s Boxing Laboratory (formerly
Robert Garcia Boxing Academy) under former Robert Garcia protegee Marco

Denver (via Mexico’s) Hernandez is no easy challenge for any fighter,
especially one with just two pro fights. In just the past year, Hernandez
slapped highly rated prospect Danny Valdivia with his first two career
losses (now 14-2) via deserved decisions.

“I’m very happy to be going back to Chicago to fight,” said Mytrofanov.
“I’ve been training very hard for this fight in Oxnard for the last eight
weeks with world-class sparring partners. I’m in terrific shape and looking
forward to a great win. I don’t know much about my opponent, but I will
make adjustments in the ring because I’m ready for anything anyone brings.”

I’m very excited about this show,” said promoter Andrew Sobko. I have been
following boxing since my father was a Ukrainian boxing champion. I grew up
in the boxing industry. I am honored to be able to bring this great event
to the boxing-rich city of Chicago and its great fans. My matchmaker, Jerry
Alfano, is doing a wonderful job of making sure every fight will be an
action-packed war.”

The terrific undercard will be announced shortly.

On fight night, the action starts at 6 pm. The Midwest Conference Center is
located at 401 W Lake Street
Northlake, IL. For more information, visit natexboxing.com
