Ringside 27/06/2018

Olympic Gold Medalist ​​Daniyar Yeleussinov, (2-0-0, 1 KO), of Kazakhstan will return to the ring in a six-round welterweight battle against an opponent to be announced on Saturday, August 4, 2018 at the Ice Arena Cardiff, as part of Matchroom Boxing’s acclaimed JDNXTGEN series telecast on Sky Sports.

The event is headlined by a vacant Commonwealth Lightweight Title clash between Joe Cordina and Sean Dodd.

The exciting Yeleussinov looked sensational in his London debut on June 6 with a six-round unanimous decision over battle-tested Hungarian veteran Zoltan Szabo at the famed and sold-out York Hall.

‘I’m thrilled to be fighting in Cardiff on August 4 in front of their passionate boxing fans,” said Yeleussinov. “Working with John-David Jackson in Florida has been great for my growth and I look forward to progressing as a professional in each fight.”

“We’re excited to return with Daniyar on August 4,” said Ziya Aliyev of Boxing Stars Management Group, LLC. “Every day he is learning more and more in the gym and I’m confident we are seeing the progression of a future world champion.”

Boxing Stars Management Group LLC is headed by Ziya Aliyev and Elvis Crespo.

Yeleussinov took the U.S. boxing fans by storm with a show-stopping performance in his pro debut on the April 28, 2018 Daniel Jacobs-Maciej Sulecki card recording a third-round knockout of Noah Kidd at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
