An evening organized by Matchroom Boxing and World of Boxing at the Humo Arena in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, which will also feature the participation of several of the most prominent Uzbek professional boxers, who will return home before the next day. they could be the biggest fights of their careers to date.

In the case of Akhmadaliev, he will already have a tough confrontation ahead, as he will have to face a mandatory defense against a former world champion like the Japanese Ryosuke Iwasa 27 (17KO) -3 (2), which is not exactly a simple stone of I touched. Rather, Iwasa is a fighter at the top of the super bantamweight division, having just completed former world champion Marlon Tapales' long streak and who has suffered nothing but losses to a Japanese boxing icon. as Shinsuke Yamanaka (then top 10 pound for pound), against former heterodox world champion Lee Haskins and against former monarch TJ Doheny, who put up a very tough fight to Daniel Roman.

So with lefty Iwasa a really efficient and solid linear boxing, he's a very demanding opponent for any fighter in the category, although Akhmadaliev will start as a favorite by a significant margin. On the one hand, this is due to one of those indirect comparisons that some like so much: if Iwasa lost to Doheny, Doheny fell to Daniel Roman, and Roman was defeated by Akhmadaliev, few consider this to prove it indirectly. the superiority of the Uzbek. On the other hand, these sorts of often misreadings aside, the styles of the two fighters seem to suit Akhmadaliev in a favorable way.

Although the challenger dominates the spaces very well and imposes his straights and precise counterattacks in the long run, he has a certain weak point in short boxing, in which, although he is tough and tenacious, he does not. he is not as determined as the other fighters. . Therefore, it is possible to think that an extremely powerful Akhamdaliev, who masterfully reduces gaps and is capable of being intractable when working with combinations of curves in the middle and short, could have obvious advantages if he manages to use his diagonals to enter the combat pour corps. corps.

Iwasa knows how to take good steps backwards, he is cunning in the counterattack with his leading hand and has more height and reach (6cm and 8cm) which could lead to complications for Akhmadaliev's deployment, well that the monarch is also left-handed. He has many resources to mess with his ins and outs and just defeated a versatile and complicated Daniel Román (considered by many to be number 1 in the division so far), so it's hard not to expect victory from him. . based on his great balance between technique and power.

Among the first stands out the official WBA super welterweight and gold contender in the Asian Championship Israil Madrimov 6 (5KO) -0, who awaits a great fight against one of the "holders" of the 'Association (this organization has a champion, Jermell Charlo , and two finalists Lara and Soro) will face a shootout against the Congolese Emmany Kolombo 14 (14KO) -0, a fighter with 100% KO but who only fought on the African circuit.

In contrast, the world gold and Olympic silver Shakhram Giyasov 10 (8KO) -0, 6th WBA in the super lightweight who only passed the sixth round once (he only played 35 rounds as a professional), will try to add experience against the Mexican. Resistance fighter Patricio López Moreno 28 (20KO) -4 (1), who has a quality baggage (he endured ten rounds against the hopeful Denys Berinchyk) and who suffered only one defeat before the limit against the notable Kazakh contender Batyrzhan Jukembayev .

Finally, the evening will be completed with another four bouts for promising boxers: Olympic gold Hasanboy Dusmatov 2 (2KO) -0 will seek to appear in the WBA ranking of the light flyweight capturing a minor title against the Tanzanian, with some meritorious performances, Muhsin Kizota 11 (5KO) -2 (1); world amateur bronze Sanjar Tursunov 2 (1KO) -0 will fight at cruiserweight against Ukrainian Ivan Yukhta 3 (2KO) -1-1; amateur world gold Mirazizbek Mirzakhalilov 0 (0KO) -0 will make his professional boxing debut fighting against Tanzanian Tasha Mjuaji 17 (5KO) -7 (3) -2; and Asian Games gold Ikboljon Kholdarov 0 (0KO) -0 will also make his debut competing at super welterweight against Tanzanian Kulwa Bushiri 13 (5KO) -5 (3) -1.
