MTK Global Card in Kazakhstan Postponed Due To Lockdown

The upcoming MTK Fight Night event in Kazakhstan has been postponed due to Kazakhstan going back into a country-wide lockdown.

The show was set to take place behind closed doors in Almaty on July 18, and feature the highly-anticipated professional debuts for amateur sensations Tursynbay Kulakhmet and Talgat Shaiken, plus the likes of Abay Tolesh, Berikbay Nurymbetov, Arman Rysbek and more.

Due to rising COVID-19 cases, Kazakhstan has been placed on a lockdown that is set to last at least two weeks, meaning the event will take place at a later date.

Head of MTK Kazakhstan Askar Salikbayev said: “In this situation, it is a big pity for the athletes who were preparing for this event.

“We had matched the fighters well, and each bout attracted a lot of interest among the fans. There was an unprecedented buzz around the event.

“Boxers, in addition to exhausting training, were also cutting weight for the 18th, so it is a massive shame. As for the new date of the event, we will proceed with the decision of the interagency commission after two weeks of quarantine, and then we will make a decision.

“We’re thinking of all citizens of our country and the entire planet, and we really hope everyone stays safe.”
