Opponent named for Daniyar Yeleussinov on Aug 4 in Cardiff
2016 Olympic Gold Medalist Daniyar Yeleussinov, (2-0-0, 1 KO), of Kazakhstan will face battle-tested veteran Gabor Gorbics, (24-11-0, 14 KO’s), of Budapest, Hungary in a six-round welterweight battle 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.
Fresh off his dominant performance in his London debut on June 6, Yeleussinov has begun preparations for this third professional fight. Fighting at the famed York Hall, the exciting southpaw won a six-round decision over veteran Zoltan Szabo.
Joined in London by local Kazak dignitaries and supporters, Yeleussinov is also expected to have a wealth of fans in Cardiff on August 4.
“As I progress in my professional career I will continue to add to my skill set,” said Yeleussinov. “Every day in training camp I learn more about becoming a better and more aggressive professional fighter.”
“Daniyar has improved in both of his professional bouts and we look for even greater improvement on August 4 against Gorbics,” said Ziya Aliyev of Boxing Stars Management Group, LLC. “We’ve heard the Cardiff boxing fans are loud and passionate and we can’t wait to have them see Daniyar.” Boxing Stars Management Group LLC is headed by Aliyev and Elvis Crespo.
Gorbics has faced numerous world class prospects over the course of his six years as a professional including Kerman Lejarraga, Liam Williams, Asinia Byfield, Radzhab Butaev, Sergey Lubkovich and Shakhram Giyasov.
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.
