The World Boxing Association (WBA) two-division world champion, Beibut Shumenov, will be measuring himself against Turkish contender Hizni Altunkaya (30-1, 17 KOs) for the WBA's vacant "regular" cruiserweight title in the main event this Saturday, in the city of Astana, Kazakhstan.

Shumenov (17-2, 11 KOs), a 2004 Olympian from Kazakhstan, retired last June due to an eye injury that required surgery, which forced him to give up his WBA "regular" belt.

Both stars, Shumenov and Altunkaya, participated this Wednesday afternoon, in a popular mall in Astana, in a public training session before the national and international press and the general public, both showcasing their solid physical condition.

The gala event on July 7 will be part of the celebration of the twentieth anniversary of Astana being the capital of Kazakhstan. Many political dignitaries from Kazakhstan and around the world are expected to attend Shumenov's return fight.

In just his tenth professional fight, Shumenov set the record for becoming a light heavyweight world champion, when he defeated Gabriel Campillo by decision in Las Vegas.

I would call it shameless for a stale fraud like Shumenov to be allowed to come back and fight a créame-filled cupcake for an alphabet belt, but it’s boxing, so you expect shyte like this
