As you know, a big professional boxing event will be held in Tashkent. On April 3, Matchroom boxing promotion is working on the Uzbek show at Humo Arena. In the main fight of the card, unified WBA and IBF super bantamweight champion Murodjon Akhmadaliev will defend his title against former world champion Ryosuke Iwasa of Japan. A number of world-known Uzbek fighters will also taken on their fights. In particular, the champion of the Rio Olympics Hasanboy Dusmatov will have his next fight.
We were interested in Dusmatovʼs thoughts about this event and take some information.
- I will fight on April 3rd. I am currently training in Andijan. I can’t say for sure about my opponent. However, two options were offered. Venezuela's Alexis Diaz (25-2, 17 KOs) and Tanzania's Muhsin Kizota (11-2, 5 KOs) are being discussed. But plans can also change due to visa issues and other factors. So it’s hard to say for sure. I can also add that the fight could be for regional title at 108lbs. No matter who the opponent is, we will try to win a battle in my country, in front of Uzbek fans!
Hasanboy Dusmatov has twice fought in professional boxing so far, winning both of them with stoppage.
