They all have been waiting for me to fight here. It's time I bring the shine back home, to my friends and fans.

Dimash was introduced to boxing at 4 years old in native Kazakhstan.  At age 5 he began to dedicate his time to gymnastics until at 13, when his family moved to the USA, his father began to train him in boxing once again.   "Ever since then I have been in the hurt business," said Dimash with a smile.
 
As an amateur, Niyazov had 30 wins against only 3 losses.  He won the NY Empire State Games and NY Metros.  He also traveled with the Kazakhstan team to China prior to the Beijing Olympics.  "I trained in Beijing for two months," said Dimash about that incredible opportunity.  "And that helped me win the NY Metros."
 
Currently, Dimash trains in Brooklyn at the Fight Factory Gym with his father who is his main coach and Akmal Zakirov, his second coach. He trains a couple of hours every day.  "I'm excited to fight on the Jacobs card," said Dimash.  "I've known Danny since I was a teen when we trained in Coney Island houses. He came a long way and I'm proud of him. He gave my countryman GGG (Gennady Golovkin) a tough fight."
