"My fighter will beat everybody in the heavyweight division; it's only a matter of time," says Boris Grinberg of AB Boxing, manager and father figure of undefeated Russian heavyweight Magomed "Mago" Abdusalamov (12-0, 12 KOs).

 

To say Team Abdusalamov is confident their fighter is the next big thing in the heavyweight division is an understatement. They are certain of it. "This guy beats everybody, including the Klitschkos. He's too big and strong. Nobody can even go more than a few rounds with him in sparring."

 

Abdusalamov will face Cuba's Pedro Rodriguez (8-0, 6 KOs) in one of the televised bouts of the Friday, February 3, ESPN Friday Night Fights broadcast presented by Warriors Boxing and Sampson Boxing at the Texas Station Gambling Hall & Hotel in Las Vegas.

 

The event, entitled "Superbrawls", will be topped by a 10-round light heavyweight main event between Colombian powerhouse Edison "Pantera" Miranda and South Africa's WBC #6, WBA #13, and WBO #14-rated Isaac "Golden Boy" Chilemba, and also feature Hylon Williams Jr. (15-0, 3 KOs) of Las Vegas and Rances "Kid Blast" Barthelemy (14-0, 11 KOs) in the eight-round lightweight co-main event

 

30-year-old "Mago" Abdusalamov is a crunching southpaw powerhouse who moves forward constantly and imposes his brute strength on his unfortunate foes.

 

Blessed with amazing patience for such a heavy-handed boxer, when faced with a challenging style, the big Russian also has the ability to study his opponent before pulverizing them, probably due to his extensive amateur career where he was the 2005 and 2006 Russian amateur champion at super heavyweight.

 

"They're calling him the Russian Tyson and a lot of people are anxious to get a look at this guy," said his promoter Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing. "The opponent he's fighting was on the Cuban national team as an amateur and is also undefeated, but our guy is unstoppable. He never stops training; he's strong as an ox, has all kinds of international experience and he listens well and learns a lot."

 

Abdusalamov currently lives in Oxnard, California, training under the watchful eye of trainer Pablo Sarmiento. Sarmiento has tremendous experience in guiding southpaw fighters to glory, as he is also the trainer of WBC emeritus middleweight champion Sergio Martinez.

He's the quintessential "good TV fighter", his Defense (or lack thereof) will prevent him from getting above the ESPN-level, but he'll be money-in-the-Bank everytime they have him on there.
The new Richie Melito? grin//

 

LOL, I haven't heard that name for awhile. Cooper-Melito remains one of my all-time favorite fights, the way all of Melito's friends and family were gather to cheer the fraud on and Burt Cooper spoiled the party within seconds grin//
