Las Vegas, Nevada - Fighting in front of a American audience at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino for the first time in his career, heavyweight prospect Vladimir Tereshkin, was impressive as he scored a unanimous six round decision over Joseph Rabotte. Tereshkin (13-0-1, 7 KO's) completely dominated Rabotte (7-12-0, 3 KO's) all six rounds, winning on all three judges' scorecards 60-54.

Vladimir TereshkinTereshkin was happy with his win in his debut and looks forward to only getting better in his quest for a world heavyweight title. "This was my first fight in the United States and I'm making the transition from European boxing to western style fighting. It is very different and will take time, but I feel like I'm headed in the right direction," said Tereshkin.

Trainer John Bray was very impressed with his new pupil's first outing and thought he did very well. "Well, you know, the kid did good. He won every second of every round and showed me some good things. We have some things to work on," stated Bray.

Bray also noted that, "He had Rabotte hurt three times, but didn't pull the trigger. We've only been working a month and we will have more time and continued sparring with Lance Whitaker, Malik Scott and Lionel Butler before his next outing and all that will change; I'm sure of that. I'll tell what though; this kid is special."

Catching up with his Co-Manager Alex Mezherovsky of Union Boxing Management he was also happy with his fighters outing. "It was his first time fighting in the United States and with it being on a Top Rank card, he was nervous. He did a great job and he is only 22 years old. He has a bright future ahead of him. I want to thank Bob Arum and Top rank Promotions for the opportunity of showcasing Vladimir on such a great card."
