"I am wondering also why Brian Rose doesn’t seem interested in challenging me. He’s achieved a good career, so far, in becoming British champion and having the Lonsdale belt for keeps.
"Would he not want to try his chance at becoming European champion? Maybe his new promoter feels that it’s a step too far?"
With Sergey now being trained by Ricky Hatton in Manchester, a fight with Blackpool’s Rose would be huge draw in the North West.
However, it’s not something he wants to think too much about at this stage as he knows the fight with Varon isn’t one which can be overlooked.
The Madrid-native has already given Matthew Macklin a hard night in challenge for the European middleweight title and knows how to score an upset, having snapped the unbeaten record of Lukas Konecny in 2004.
"I do not know Ruben Varon and I’ve never seen him box, but from his record I can see that he’s an experienced professional and will, for sure, try to seize the chance to win the European and WBC Silver titles," Rabchenko said.
"But I will not give him this possibility and I’ll keep my titles, as I have much bigger things to achieve.
"I am fully confident this fight is another step forward in my career. With Ricky Hatton behind me, the sky is the limit!"
