Magomed Abdusalamov-Travis Walker Bout in The Works

By Bill Kozloff (Allboxing.ru) and Alexey Sukachev

According to Boris Grinberg, a well-known Russian-American who once served as Sultan Ibragimov’s manager and who now works for Team Abdusalamov, the undefeated Russian kayo artist can face American fringe contender (or probably a gatekeeper now) Travis Walker in his next fight. The bout is tentatively scheduled for ten rounds and is scheduled to take place on January 14 at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, USA. No contracts are signed but both parties are very close to get a done deal.

30-year old former super heavyweight amateur standout from Russia has a perfect record of twelve wins, all by way of knockout (ten – in the very first round). In his latest outing Magomed Abdusalamov, who is being guided by Pablo Sarmiento, stopped fellow prospect Rich Power (15-2, 11 KOs) in three.

“We had a scheduled date on Dec. 16 but we badly needed a better opponent than Power, a major step up in class, and we have found none. We hope Walker will give Magomed some fits and will make it a competitive fight”, added Grinberg.

The Freight Train Walker (38-7-1, 30 KOs), 32, a powerful American banger with a questionable chin, is 4-1, with 2 KOs and a one-sided loss to Kubrat Pulev, in 2011. He has been stopped five times in his career but in his recent couple of losses (against Pulev and Ruslan Chagaev) Walker lasted a full road.

By James Slater: Unbeaten Russian heavyweight Magomed “Mago” Abdusalamov is an exciting 30-year-old who has been turning heads (literally) with his natural, raw punching power. A good amateur who picked up a lot of experience before moving to the U.S…
