Oleksandr “The Nail” Gvozdyk, who is the reigning WBC Light Heavyweight World Champion, attended the Philadelphia Ukrainian Food and Culture Festival Saturday at St. Michael the Archangel Ukrainian Catholic Church.

Oleksandr Gvozdyk (17-0, 14KO) fights Saturday October 18th at Temple University’s Liacouras Center versus Russia’s Artur Beterbiev, who currently holds the IBF Light Heavyweight Title.  The winner will be awarded both titles, making him the unified champion in the division.

At the festival, Gvozdyk met with attendees, many of whom brought boxing gloves and memorabilia for him to sign.  He was accompanied by his trainer, Hall of Fame trainer/broadcaster Teddy Atlas.
