Igor Lazarev and Angelo Peña Weigh In

Lightweight Igor Lazarev is scheduled to face Angelo Peña tomorrow at Stadttheater Bern in Bern, Switzerland. Lazarev is 8-3 with 3 KOs and Peña is 1-0 with one KO.

Lazarev came in the lightest of his pro career at 131 pounds today. Peña was 130.5 pounds when he stepped on the scale. Igor had weighed in between 131.5 and 135.3 pounds during his nearly four years as a pro. Lazarev averages 4.5 rounds a fight. Peña, a 27 year old based in Switzerland, weighed 133.8 pounds for his lone prizefight which lasted a minute and 35 seconds into the second round.

Lazarev, a 35 year old from Israel, fought brilliantly against undefeated prospect Dominik Harwankowski less than a month ago on March 19. The Jewish Boxing Blog scored the bout 59-55 for Lazarev. As it turned out, Harwankowski's mentor was one of the judges who gifted the Polish fighter a unanimous decision victory in the worst decision The JBB has ever covered.

Lazarev hopes to repeat his stellar performance from last month. He also hopes the judging in Switzerland will be fairer. This bout is slated for six rounds and can be viewed via Fite.tvHere is The JBB's preview of the fight.
