The details (from wikipedia)


Volodymyr Virchis (Ukrainian: Володимир Вірчіс; born August 18, 1973 in Kakhovka, Kherson Oblast, Ukrainian SSR, Soviet Union) is a Ukrainian boxer and is a touted prospect in the heavyweight division.

Virchis is known as "The Hunter", the large and powerful Virchis turned professional in 1999 and won his first 20 bouts with 17 knockouts, including victories over clubfighters Julius Francis, Cliff Couser, and Michael Sprott.

His career was sidetracked in 2007 when he faced undefeated amateur star Ruslan Chagaev and lost a controversial majority decision.

Later in the year he rebounded by knocking out European champion, Paolo Vidoz, once more with a big right hand.

In late 2008 Virchis lost a decision to Juan Carlos Gomez. Virchis had alcohol before the match, and he was drunk while fighting. After the loss a disappointed Virchis announced his retirement from the sport.
