It is known that a historic professional boxing show will be held in Tashkent on April 3. In the main fight Uzbek fighter Murodjon Akhmadaliev, the holder of the IBF and WBA championship belts in the super bantamweight, faces Ryosuke Iwasa from Japan. A number of Uzbek boxing celebrities will also have their fights. In particular, Ikboljon Kholdarov will make his debut in professional boxing. He will face Ukrainian Volodymyr Hordiienko (8-3-0, 3 KOs). This Ukrainian boxer is well known to Uzbek fans. Because he fought another Uzbek fighter Ravshanbek Makhammadjonov for the WBC World Youth Championship belt, in which Makhammadjonov won.
We were interested in the opinion of Ravshanbek Mahammadjonov and the coach of many of Uzbek boxers Zufar Suleymanov about this boxer and how difficult it can be for Ikboljon Kholdarov.
- In general, Hordiienko is a very good boxer. His left-handed side-punch is so powerful and dangerous that he runs number one in the ring. Usually, he doesn’t like to work second. He always tries to keep his opponent under pressure. In addition, he is superior to Ikboljon in terms of experience. That is, I mean his professional activities. In fact, he was able to record good results even in the amateur direction. However, I think that the class in Ikboljon is still high. His free movements in the ring, his clever work, his leg movements are excellent. Iqboljon has all the weapons against the Ukrainian boxer. I think Hordiienko will have a lot of trouble in this fight.
Good luck to all Uzbek boxers who will go to the ring on April 3. I wish them all happy with beautiful victories!
