BoxingScene.com has been advised that 22-year-old Tugstsogt "King Tug" Nyambayar has signed a contract with powerful manager/adviser Al Haymon. Nyambayar is a successful amateur out of Mongolia. He won a silver medal at the 2009 World Amateur Boxing Championships held in Milan. He followed up that achievement a few years later by gaining a silver medal, as a flyweight, at the 2012 London Olympic games.
In the Olympics, he lost to Cuba's very talented Robeisy Ramirez Carrazana in the gold medal bout. Coincidently, Nyambayar beat Misha Aloian in the Olympic semi-finals, and Aloian beat Carrazana in the 2011 World Amateur Boxing Championships.
Nyambayar will officially turn pro in the near future and veteran coach Joe Goossen of Los Angeles has been retained to train him. BoxingScene was told that Nyambayar will be fast-tracked as a pro, as he wants to fight for a world title within ten fights.
