Shakhram Giyasov, Murodjon Akhmadaliev Debut - KO Wins

Shakhram Giyasov and Murodjon Akhmadaliev made their initial steps in the pro ranks on Saturday night.

Both boxers made their pro debuts at the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, New York as part of an undercard to an event being staged by Evander Holyfield’s Real Deal Boxing,

Both of the boxers recently signed promotional deals with Andrey Ryabinsky of World of Boxing, and they are also working with well known manager Vadim Kornilov of Brigade Sports Management.


Giyasov made his professional debut against Argentina’s Nicolas Velazquez, (10-3, 3 KO’s) and made things look easy when he picked up a first round knockout in welterweight battle.

And Akhmadaliev matched that feat when he made his own professional debut, with a showcase of his power to score a first round knockout of David Paz, (4-5-1) in a featherweight fight.

"Everyone who has seen me fight, knows I like to be bring intense pressure to my opponent," said Akhmadaliev.

"I have faith that my power will be one of my best attributes, especially at featherweight, where my body feels the strongest. I want to be known as the knockout king, and when I see my opponent hurt, I'm going to do my best to end the fight."

Giyasov and Akhmadaliev are trained by Joel Diaz in Indio, California.

The 24-year-old Giyasov was a Silver Medalist at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janiero representing Uzbekistan. At the 2017 World Amateur Championships in Hamburg, Germany,he won the Gold Medal in the welterweight division and was voted the best boxer of the tournament.

Giyasov was also a Gold Medalist at the 2017 Asian Amateur Boxing Championships.

Also representing Uzbekistan, the 23-year-old Akhmadaliev was a bronze medalist at the 2016 Olympics competing as a bantamweight. He was also a Gold Medalist at the 2017 Asian Amateur Boxing Championships and a Silver Medalist at the 2015 World Amateur Championships and 2015 Asian Amateur Boxing Championships.

In the main event of the Saturday card, undefeated welterweight Julian Sosa thrilled the hometown crowd with a third round (0:59) stoppage of Wilmer Rodriguez. Dominant from the opening bell behind a battering jab and excellent body work, Sosa finished the action with a textbook left hook to the body as referee Shada Murdaugh counted out Rodriguez.

With the victory, the 22-year-old Sosa improved to 11-0-1, 4 KO’s, while the valiant Rodriguez moved to 9-2-0, 7 KO’s.
