Shafikov’s opponent is yet to be defined.

IBF #1 Shafikov is coming off a decent win (TKO 9) over his compatriot Rustam Nugaev earlier this year. He is planning to target the IBF lightweight champion and TBRB #4 135lber Mickey Bey (21-1-1, 10 KOs) in the first half of 2015. Bey has just dethroned long-time IBF master Miguel Vazquez with a debatable split decision. Vazquez previously defeated Shafikov last February.
