Overseeing Grachev’s work is his trainer and former MMA/jiu-jitsu fighter Carlos “Baruch” Ferreira. There has been a great feel in camp for Grachev, as Russian-born, San Diego resident has been training alongside middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, WBO junior middleweight champion Zaurbek Baysangurov, and several other talents.
