Dmitry Pirog is a Russian pro and the current WBO Middleweight Champion. Pirog is currently the only Russian boxer who holds a professional boxing title.

Dmitry used to be a chess player and wasn't getting enough activity, so he decided to start boxing. He had over 230 amateur fights, winning several Russian National Amateur Championships.

On July 31, 2010 Pirog fought Middleweight contender, Daniel Jacobs for the vacant WBO Middleweight Championship.  Pirog shockingly upset Jacobs via knockout with a hard right hand in the 5th round to win the title, on the Juan Manuel Marquez vs. Juan Diaz II undercard.
