Magomed Abdusalamov Now Ranked at #4 By WBC

On the eve of his next concussive ring appearance, undefeated future heavyweight champion Magomed "Mago" Abdusalamov (17-0, 17 KOs) has been elevated to #4 in the latest WBC rankings.

Abdusalamov, the reigning WBC-USNBC Champion, is coming off an impressive stoppage over former Olympian Victor Bisbal on March 8 and heading into a showdown against Argentina's Sebastian Ceballos (33-7-2, 25 KOs) on April 27 at Club Atlético Vélez Sarsfield in Buenos Aires, Argentina, as part of the Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez (50-2-2, 28 KOs) vs. Martin Murray (25-0-1, 11 KOs) WBC World Middleweight Championship undercard.

The fight against Ceballos will be televised internationally, as Abdusalamov's star continues to rise.

"Mago is a top contender now," said his promoter, Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing. "He will only have to win a couple more fights and he will be in a perfect position to begin his championship reign, which will last a long time. I have said this since early in his career. He is too strong for anyone in the world to handle. Some of his opponents come out and use up all their energy in a few rounds and maybe they look like they're doing ok. But the pressure of Magomed is incredible and before long they are waiting to get knocked out like everybody else. He is the future champion of the world."

[QUOTE=Tobi.G;13216758]I want to see Abdusalamov vs. Wilder! Two guys with 100% KO-ratio!! A historic fight! Abdusalamov is quiet a big hitter! I think he would stop Wilder. He punches harder and is tougher and propably takes a shot better. These…

He's really hot prospect and maybe a contender but #4? Who did he beat to get there, McCline? I guess they move up fast when the sanctioning bodies can't find anyone else to rank.
