KZ Boxing: Top Prospects Added To August 15 Fight Card

By Boxing Press August 5th, 2009 All Press Releases

Team KZ is much more than its undisputed leader, unbeaten light heavyweight Beibut Shumenov, who challenges WBA light heavyweight champion Gabriel “Chico Guapo” Campillo, August 15th at the Sport Complex “Daulet” National Tennis Center in Astana, Kazakhstan.

Two Team KZ members, 4-time Uzbekistan National amateur champion Gayrat Ahmedov and Uzbekistan light middleweight Ravshan Hudayaynazarov, will be showcased on the August 15th card.

“We’re building our promotional company to compete with the best in the business,” Chingis said.

“My brother’s success has brought a lot of positive attention to KZ Event Productions and we’ve been able to sign some great prospects like Gayrat and Ravshan.

"We’re very excited to have them both in our stable of future champions. They both fought on our last show. We’re also evaluating talent all over the world to sign more outstanding prospects.”

Ahmedov (11-0-1, 7 KOs) fights former Eastern & Central African titlist Douglas “Daggy” Otieno (19-1, 9 KOs) in the 12-round co-feature for the vacant PABA and WBO Asia Pacific light heavyweight titles, recently relinquished by Beibut Shumenov.

Hudayaynazarov (8-0, 5 KOs), 2007 World Military Games gold medalist, fights 42-pro fight veteran, ex-Kenyan title-holder Joseph Joseph “Mish” Miyumo (30-7-5, 17 KOs), in a 6-round bout.

2004 Kazakhstan Olympian Shumenov (8-0, 6 KOs), reigning International Boxing Association title-holder, takes on slick Spanish southpaw, Campillo (18-2, 6 KOs), who won the WBA title in June as a decisive underdog, taking the WBA crown from Argentinean favorite and defending title-holder, Hugo Hernan Garay (32-3).

The 25-year-old Shumenov will make history if he defeats Campillo in his ninth pro fight, eight less than the fewest ever for a world light heavyweight champion, Michael Spinks (17). Now living and training in Las Vegas, Kazak star Beibut is currently rated No. 9 by the WBA.

WBO light welterweight champion DeMarcus “Chop Chop” Corley (34-11, 20 KOs) continues his comeback in an 8-round bout versus “Jessie” James Kimori (11-1, 7 KOs).

Also scheduled to fight on the undercard against opponents to be determined is Philadelphia light welterweight Karl Dargan (4-0) and a pair of pro debuting Kazaks, super featherweight Abzal Adambaev and heavyweight Doszhan Ospanov.

The Aug. 15th show will be presented by KZ Event Productions, owned and operated by the Shumenov brothers, Beibut and Chingis, in association with Sampson Boxing, LLC.
