Conwell, who competed in the men’s 2016 Summer Olympics is from Cleveland. His first 2020 action came in in February when he scored a fifth-round stoppage against Ramses Agaton. Known for his punching power, Conwell recently capped off the Oct. 7th main event of ShoBox with a knockout of Wendy Toussaint. A swift uppercut in the ninth round ended the contest and broke Toussaint’s nose in a fight that Conwell was comfortably winning. Conwell is promoted by DiBella Entertainment, also had cause to celebrate this year when he welcomed a daughter earlier this fall to become a first-time father. “I’m happy to be getting right back in the ring to show my skill, class and dominance on NBC Sports Network,” Conwell said.
Ashkeyev, who fights out of boxing hotbed Oxnard by way of his native Kazakhstan, returns to face Conwell a year after his last fight in which he stopped Rodolfo Martinez at the end of the fifth round. Ashkeyev was an excellent amateur who participated in the World Series of Boxing. The undefeated Ashkeyev is promoted by Main Events and managed by Egis Klimas. “I am very happy to have the chance to fight on NBCSN,” Ashkayev said. “I will be ready to make a big statement in my first televised main event in the United States and have waited a long time to show everyone what I can do.”
