Last weekend Aida Satybaldinova (5-1-1, 2) [Сатыбалдинова Аида] scored her latest win, taking out the over-matched Veronica Valtierra (0-4) in the second round. Today details regarding her next bout were announced.
The once beaten Kazakh will be back in the ring on on March 15th in California, though her opponent is yet to be named.
Given the quality of opposition Satybaldinova has faced so far through her career, we're not expecting anyone too testing, though hopefully it will be a notable step up from Valtierra, who looked like she didn't belong in a boxing ring.
Sadly whilst we know what one notable female Kazakh is doing, everything has gone quiet on the Firuza Sharipova (9-1, 4) [фируза шарипова] front. In early January her manager was quoted as having had a deal close to agreed for her next fight, in March, but now that appears to have fallen through and it's very unclear on what she's doing with her career.
On Saturday night in Mexico fans were able to see Kazakh female hopeful Aida Satybaldinova (5-1-1, 2) [Сатыбалдинова Аида] record her latest win, as she stopped Mexican Veronica Valtierra (0-4) in the second round.
The Kazakh came forward throughout, backing up Valtierra, who looked like she hadn't really trained for a professional bout. The Mexican repeatedly walked herself on to the ropes as Satybaldinova came forward and unloaded shot after shot.
The Mexican survived the first round, which seemed a short round in fairness, but was dropped twice in round 2, taking the 10 count after the second knockdown.
Despite the win we do wonder what Satybaldinova's career ambition is. Her competition has been dreadful and yet she has received quite a bit of attention in the Kazakh media, so there may be some feeling that she doesn't need to face better competition to remain a media darling. However if she wants to fight for titles she will, eventually, have to face better opponents than she did here.

Back in September Kazakh fighter Aida Satybaldinova (4-1-1, 1) [Сатыбалдинова Аида] travelled to Mexico to score her latest win. It's now been revealed that she's had an even bigger win, as her career has been made into a short documentary.
The film, "LADY SPARTA | профессиональный женский бокс в LA" or "Lady Sparta. Professional Women's Boxing in LA", can be seen below or on the youtube channel of kana beisekeyev.
The documentary, which has English subtitles, sees Aida talk about her career, her love of boxing and her life. It sees the fighter really open up and go through some genuinely emotional moments as she talks about her up bringing and her grandfather.
Whilst it's nothing massive it is well worth a watch and Kana has done a great job in getting this documentary filmed.

Last night in Mexico fight fans had the chance to see Kazakh fighter Aida Satybaldinova (4-1-1, 1) [Сатыбалдинова Аида] bounce back from her first defeat.
The once beaten Kazakh fighter was taking on Mexican novice Veronica Valtierra (0-2) in Tijuana, and managed to score a second round stoppage of the 31 year old local.
Through the bout Satybaldinova was the aggressor and hammered the Mexican, who was stopped after taking a shellacking in the neutral corner. It seemed clear that the Kazakh wasn't just looking to bounce back with a win, but was looking for her first stoppage, which she got in exciting fashion.
Despite the win it's clear there is still a lot of work to do with the Kazakh, who is still defensively open, and we would suggest she doesn't rush into a rematch with Selina Barrios any time soon.

In July Kazakh fighter Aida Satybaldinova (3-1-1) [Сатыбалдинова Аида] suffered her first career defeat, losing in 4 rounds to the unbeaten Selina Barrios in the US. We'll see he look to bounce back from that loss on September 29th as she faces Mexican novice Veronica Valtierra (0-1) in Tijuana.
The fighter recently spoke to Kazakh media and explained that she has learned from her loss and has set her self goals to achieve before she's done with boxing.
Dubbed "Lady Sparta" Satybaldinova will know that anything but a win at the end of September will be very hard to rebuild from. She will however boast the edge in experience and will be firmly aware that her Mexican opponent was stopped in her only professional contest, in an 86 second bout to another novice professional.
