from the Ukraine, Anatoliy "The Gladiator" Dudchenko now resides in Los
Angeles, CA and has reunited with legendary trainer Jesse Reid for his
first fight since signing with Main Events. Dudchenko, 35, has an
impressive 68% (13 of 19) knockout-to-win ratio. He has also won 16
straight decisions, 10 by stoppage, dating to 2008. Anatoliy is coming
off a 12-round unanimous decision victory over Robert Woge in Germany on
October 26, 2013 for the IBF Inter-Continental Light Heavyweight Title.
"The Gladiator" is excited to make his NBCSN Fight Night debut, "Fighting on television in America is everything I've wanted when
I started boxing. I watched Roy Jones on TV and that is what I wanted
to be. I was in TV in Europe, but this is a bigger audience in America
and I am excited to be fighting on Fight Night."

Dargan won his title on November 16, 2013 against Mike Brooks in a
10-round unanimous decision victory on the Special Edition of Fight Night broadcast on NBC live from Turning Stone Resort and Casino in Verona,

with me and all I can do is look forward to the future."
