Images from Abel Sanchez’s Summit Gym in Big Bear, California, as WBO junior middleweight champion Zaurbek Baysangurov (28-1, 20 KO’s) bites down during sparring ahead of his July 6th bout with talented southpaw Demetrius Andrade (19-0, 13 KO’s) in Kiev, Ukraine.


Sparring with the likes of middleweight prospect Gilberto Sanchez (25-0, 20 KO’s), junior middleweight Chris Pearson (7-0, 6 KO’s), and former “World Series of Boxing” competitor David Imoesiri, Baysangurov got several different looks inside of the ring and pushed hard as each round progressed.


To be successful against the tall and lanky speedster that Andrade is, Baysangurov knows he will have to find a way to work his way to the inside and he is preparing himself for a walk through fire in order to get there.
