Yeleussinov To Return In October After Moving To 3-0

By Elliot Foster

Daniyar Yeleussinov continued his flawless campaign in the professional ranks with another win.

The Kazakh Olympic champion was relatively dominant against Gabor Gorbics, scoring a points verdict over the Hungarian, who is the Hungarian and Slovakian welterweight champion.

Yeleussinov moved to 3-0 at the Ice Arena in Cardiff, Wales, exclusively live on Sky Sports, after outpointing the former WBO European super-welterweight title challenger by a margin of 60 points to 54, as part of the supporting cast to Joe Cordina’s defence of the WBA International lightweight title against Sean Dodd as the pair contest the vacant Commonwealth crown.

And after the John David Jackson-trained welterweight, who was cut in the fifth of six rounds, added another win to his ledger, his promoter Eddie Hearn revealed the plan for the coming months.

“It was another good six rounds in there from him,” Hearn said of the amateur standout, who was disappointed with going to points. “The second half of the fight was far better than the first, but we need to step up the levels before we see the best of him.”

Hearn went on to divulge that Yeleussinov will be stepped up in level when he returns to the ring in the United States on a card in October.

As part of the Matchroom Boxing USA deal, Hearn has a card on the DAZN platform on October 6 in Chicago, topped by Callum Johnson’s IBF light-heavyweight title challenge against Artur Beterbiev, and one on October 20 in California which is headed by Gavin McDonnell in a challenge for Daniel Roman’s WBA super-bantamweight title.

But it remains to be seen which card the 27-year-old will box on, with further details to be revealed in due course.
