Undefeated contender Santander "Cha Cha" Silgado (23-0, 18 KOs) will become Havoc Boxing Promotions' first world title challenger when he takes on World Boxing Association (WBA) cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev (24-1, 18 KOs) this Saturday night (December 15) in Russia. Team Silgado departed today for Moscow.

Boxing clothing line giant Havoc Boxing is internationally known for creating and marketing its flashy, colorful trunks, robes and corner jackets, showcased by high-profile boxers such as unbeaten WBA Super and World Boxing Council (WBC) light welterweight champion Danny Garcia, newly crowned WBC lightweight title-holderAdrien Broner, and two-time World Champion Andre Berto, as well as past U.S. Olympians, Demetrius Andrade and Sadam Ali.

Havoc Boxing Promotions, however, is also a licensed New York boxing promoter and Silgado represents its first boxer in a world title fight. "People think of New York City boxing promoters as Lou DiBella and Joe DeGuardia," Silgado's promoter Rob Diaz (Havoc Boxing Promotions CEO) said, "but there are also a lot of other boxing promoters here like Havoc Boxing. At this stage for Havoc Boxing to have a fighter in a world title fight is huge, especially when Santander wins to become a world champion, elevating Havoc Boxing into that elite level in New York City boxing."

Silgado, a seven-time National amateur champion in his native Colombia, Santander had nearly 200 amateur fights. Now fighting out of Brooklyn, WBC No. 6-rated Silgado is the reigning WBC FECARBOX and WBA Fedelatin cruiserweight champion.

Because most of his professional fights have been in South America - four of his last five have been in the U.S. - Silgado remains one of the best kept secrets in boxing, despite him knocking out 18 of his 23 opponents.
