Gradovich, Korobov added to Crawford-Jean undercard

Both Evgeny Gradovich and Matt Korobov have been scheduled to fight on the Terence Crawford vs. Dierry Jean undercard in Omaha, Nebraska on Oct. 24th.

Former titlist Evgeny Gradovich (19-1-1, 9 KOs) will be getting back on the horse Oct. 24th, where he has been added to the Crawford-Jean undercard in Omaha, Nebraska. This will be his first fight since losing his title to Lee Selby back in May. In this bout, Gradovich, the "Mexican Russian," will be taking on journeyman Aldimar Silva Santos (19-8, 12 KOs) in a scheduled 8-rounder.

Also added to the undercard is Matt Korobov (24-1, 14 KOs), who will be making his first appearance since losing his only professional fight to Andy Lee last December, which was for the then-vacant title. In that fight, Korobov was ahead on all three scorecards heading into the 6th round when Lee caught him with that magic right hook that's bailed him out more that a few times. Korobov will be facing Mexico's Josue Ovando (13-7-1, 10 KOs) in another scheduled 8-rounder.

Both of these fights are what you might consider "soft touches" for two fighters trying to bounce back after disappointing losses.
