Alex Karchevski to Make Pro Debut in February

Light heavyweight Alex Karchevski is scheduled to make his professional debut on February 9, 2023 in Ashdod, Israel. Karchevski qualified for the 2022 European amateur championships but couldn't secure funding and was unable to participate.

Karchevski is a 31 year old father of two. He is from Ofakim, Israel which is just west of Be'er Sheva.  He moved to Ashdod as a youth and now lives in Lod. He fights out of HaPoel Bat Yam boxing club. Vitali Kaganov has been his trainer.

Alex's father forced him to box when the family lived in Ofakim. Alex didn't like it. After three years, the family moved to Ashdod and Karchevski continued boxing at HaPoel Bat Yam. That was the turning point in his career.

Karchevski is an experienced boxer who can fight in a variety of styles. He has sparred with pro boxer Nikita Basin among many others. Karchevsky recently fought Duncan Nwaoha in an exhibition match late last month. Alex controlled center ring and press forward against the taller slick southpaw.
