Arlovski signs with Golden Boy Promotions

Even though Andrei Arlovski got KTFO by Fedor Emelianenko at Affliction: Day of Reckoning, he has decided to transfer his talents into professional boxing. Who knows, maybe he will do better when all he has to concern himself with is his and his opponent’s punches. Also, the gloves have much more padding than MMA, which should at least partially help him from being as susceptible to knock-outs.

FightHype.com is reporting that Arlovski has signed a contract with Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions and that his next fight will be inside a boxing ring. No date or opponent has yet been named. However, prior to his fight with Fedor, his trainer, Freddie Roach had made the statement that if Andrei won he would put him into a Heavyweight Title fight with Nikolai Valuev right away. That fight seems highly unlikely now considering Arlovski’s loss to Fedor.
