Yesterday in California fight fans were able to see unbeaten Uzbek Heavyweight hopeful Bakhodir Jalolov extended his perfect record, as he scored a stoppage win over American foe Willie Harvey.
The 24-year-old Jalolov represented Uzbekistan in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he was honored as his country’s flagbearer at the Opening Ceremonies. Compiling an impressive 84-13 amateur record, Jalolov was a four-time National champion from 2013-2016.
He won gold medals at the Asian Amateur Boxing Championships in 2017, World Cup Tournament, Liventsev Memorial Tournament, Great Silk Way Tournament, and Duisenkul Shopokov Memorial Tournament in 2015, and at the World Cup of Petroleum Countries Tournament in 2014. During his amateur career, Jalolov also focused on his education, earning a Master’s Degree in Sports Science.
Since turning professional under the DiBella Entertainment banner in May 2018, the heavy-handed southpaw has quickly impressed boxing fans across the country with highlight reel knockouts.
