Bashanov, who will be competing in the super middleweight division, was a standout amateur boxer with over 100 amateur fights, winning the Danish Elite Championship in 2014 and the Jutland Elite Championship for the last three consecutive years. The 23 year-old also represented Denmark on numerous occasions in international competitions.
Originally from Struer, but now based in Vejle under the guidance of trainers Kasper Holgersen and Thomas Madsen, Bashanov claims that he is more than ready to join the professional ranks.
“It’s a great opportunity that I’m so grateful for, but I’m also 100% ready to prove that I belong here,’’ said Bashanov. “I’m a wise and a brave fighter with a big heart. It’s not going to be boring – that I promise you!”
