33-year-old heavyweight knockout artist Arslanbek Makhmudov has signed a “multi-year co-promotional contract” with Prime Rank, who will work alongside present promoter Eye of the Tiger to handle “The Lion’s” profession going ahead.
“I’m lucky to work with the highest promoters on the earth,” Makhmudov stated. “This represents an vital step towards attaining my aim of changing into a world champion.”
Makhmudov (14-0, 14 KO) has been nearly untouchable as he’s graduated from low- to mid-level competitors. Solely Jonathan Rice and Mariusz Wach have taken him previous the third spherical, and whereas demolition jobs of Samuel Peter and Erkan Teper aren’t something to jot down residence about, he’s obtained what appears like a really strong check in retailer when he takes on Carlos Takam on September sixteenth.
ESPN+ will carry that one, for these curious.
If he can get previous Takam in spectacular vogue, odds are we’ll see him fast-tracked. He’s ranked sixth with each the WBC and WBA, which means that if the snarl on the prime ever will get sorted out, he’ll be in prime place to make a push.
