2012 Olympic Silver Medal Winner Inks With Al Haymon

By Rick Reeno 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.

I saw this kid at the 2012 Olympic Games where he won his silver medal and I was very impressed. He also took a silver medal at the 2009 World Championships when he was only 17. I'm looking forward to…

Never seen this guy fight before but good luck to him. Guess we'll never get to see 'King Tug' vs Shiming.

Tug is the real deal tho, has good pop and good hand speed, also throws good combos. Hopefully Haymon can get him some exposure to a bigger fan base. Would like to see more lower weight guys have a chance…
