Daniyar Yeleussinov Moves To 2-0, London Return Next Month

By Elliot Foster

Daniyar Yeleussinov made a serious impression on his UK debut.

The Kazakh Olympic gold medallist, who was signed by Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing ahead of his professional debut earlier this year, won his first fight in the paid code in devastating fashion back in April.

Yeleussinov, 27, took just three rounds to get rid of Noah Kidd at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

But it was in another York that ‘The Kazakh Thunder’ got his second pro ranks victory, exclusively live on Sky Sports.

He saw off Zoltan Szabo, the former WBA Continental super-lightweight title challenger, at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London, as part of the latest instalment of the JDNXTGEN series.

Szabo was being broken down in the early stages of the fight but, as it wore on, Yeleussinov realised that the Hungarian –– who won just four days ago –– that he wouldn’t manage to get him out of there.

Yeleussinov settled for a points win and got it –– by a margin of 60 points to 54 –– against a man who boxed almost an entire round without a gum shield after it flew out courtesy of a punch.

With the victory, Yeleussinov moved to 2-0 with one early, while Szabo, 24, slipped to 24-12 with 10 quick finishes.

His promoter Hearn confirmed in the aftermath that Yeleussinov will fight again on July 28 at the O2 Arena in London, with further details regarding the card to come in due course.

Hearn has two of the best Prospects I've seen in a while at 147, should be interesting how they develop and I'm really interested how Josh Kelly comes on.

He has the potential but as already mentioned age is not on his side. Needs to be fighting 3-4 times at least per year and against decent opposition. If he's as good as they say he is stop protecting his…

Daniyar needs to throw more combinations. He only threw a few and he basically landed all of the punches, but he has to do it way more often. He was reminding me of Rigo in there. Only throwing one or…

He was interesting to watch, but like others, I was not terribly impressed by him. They hyped him up a ton against Noah Kidd, don't think he lived up to that hype. Time will tell.

I would agree with it! he is good for 3 rounds being very active and moving a lot with side-steps. but in a long fight, he didn't look that impressive, too much backpedalling and not that active, plus got too…
