Bahkodir Jalolov Blasts Out Willie Harvey in Two Rounds

By Francisco Salazar

Hard-hitting heavyweight Bahkodir Jalolov remained unbeaten Friday night, stopping Willie Harvey in round two at the Marconi Automotive Museum in Tustin, California.

Jalolov, a 6’7” southpaw who is originally from Uzbekistan and now resides in Brooklyn, New York, dropped Harvey in the second round. Harvey attempted to fight back after getting up, but Jalolov battered Harvey moments later, prompting referee Raul Caiz, Sr. to stop the fight at 1:11.

Jalalov, who improves to 5-0, 5 KOs, is promoted by Lou DiBella.


Harvey (3-2-1, 3 KOs) resides in Plainfield, New Jersey and now goes to 3-2-1, 3 KOs.

Another hard-hitting prospect also ended matters quickly.

Unbeaten super middleweight Triantafyllos Mavidis knocked out Juan Celin Zapata (6-14-2, 4 KOs), who has now lost five of his last seven bouts. Time of the knockout was 2:09 of the second round.

Mavidis, who is originally from Greece and now resides in the Los Angeles area, improves to 5-0, 5 KOs.

Middleweight Andreas Katzourakis, who is also from Greece and resides in Los Angeles, knocked out Brazil’s Gilberto Pereira dos Santos (14-10, 14 KOs).

Time of the knockout was 2:58 of the third round. Katzourakis improves to 3-0, 3 KOs.

The fight card was promoted by Roy Englebrecht, coinciding with a fundraiser for the Marconi Automotive Museum ‘Foundation for Kids.’
