With boxing grinding to a halt around the world during the mointh of January, Kazakstan is one of the few hotspots presenting live ring action. On Tuesday, January 26th, junior middleweight Ray Seitzhanov will kick off his 2021 campaign in Almaty. Seitzhanov (5-0, 2 KOs) will take on fellow undefeated fighter Nurbol Berdimuratov (2-0) at the Tynyshpayev Academy of Transport and Communications on Tuesday 26 January. It’s a quick return to action for Seitzhanov, after he picked up a first-round stoppage win over Evgenii Vazem in December. It rounded off a successful 2020 for the 22 year-old, going alongside his wins over Berikbay Nurymbetov and Talgat Bertleuov earlier in the year. He now turns his attention to Berdimuratov, who made his debut in 2020 and secured victories against Bagdaulet Bolatbay and Raiymbek Tukenov in the process. The event later this month is being hel by Tukeshov Boxing, and will also feature the likes of Dastan Saduuly, Yernur Akhylbek and Nurslan Sabirov.
