YUKA Boxing, led by Zyaki Yunisov, will present Kazan boxing fans with something to celebrate on December 18.
It’s when two undefeated junior middleweights will clash for three minor belts, as IBF #7 rated Khusein Baysangurov (14-0, 12 KOs), a nephew of former WBO champion Zaurbek Baysangurov, collides with fellow undefeated WBO #12 Aram Amirkhanyan (11-0-1, 3 KOs).
“The end of the year will be very hot here in Russia. Together with Al Siesta we shall present a major collision between two bitter rivals. This fight between an extremely skilled technician in Amirkhanyan and one-punch kayo artist Baysangurov was long in waiting and in making. We are glad it’s finally here, and it’ll be expressed in both personal tension and three title belts”, commented Yunisov. “Personally, I feel chances are equal between those two”.
Yunisov announced that WBA Continental, IBF International and WBO International 154lb titles will be at stake in the fight that takes its places on Dec. 18 at the Pyramide in Kazan, Russia.
Baysangurov’s biggest win is the first-round knockout of 24-2 Nick Klappert in December 2017. Amirkhanyan previously upset undefeated favorite Uktamjon Rakhmonov in 2016 and 14-2 Viskhan Murzabekov in 2017. In his previous fight, Amirkhanyan scored a surprising road split decision over 17-1 Ukrainian Stanislav Skorokhod.
