Bakhodir Jalolov to struggle with American Marquis Valentine in La Puente
Originally the plan was for him to fight on December 6th in Los Angeles, though that date has been and gone and he's not fought.
Thankfully however his fight hasn't been cancelled, but instead it ended up being pushed back to December 8th and taking place in La Puente, with the changes being made for undisclosed reasons.
His opponent will be American 25 year old Marquis Valentine (5-4, 2), who is a man mammoth at around 300lbs. Sadly for Valentine he has lost his last 3, and 4 of his last 5, including a decision loss to the unbeaten Darmani Rock and a bizarre DQ loss to Cassius Anderson., in what was seen as a very controversial result.
On paper this should be a better test for Jalolov than his previous 3 bouts, but it's still hard to imagine anything but a win for the hugely talented Uzbek youngster, who has fought just 8 rounds as a professional.
