According to sources in Kazakhstan two top Canadian based Kazakh fighters are currently without a lead trainer after Eye of the Tiger promotions cut their ties with Stefan LaRouche.
The sources state that both Batyrzhan Jukembayev (13-0-0-2, 11) [Батыр Джукембаев] and Nurzat Sabirov (7-0, 6) [Нурзат Сабиров] have been left with out a mentor following the split with LaRouche.
The two men are currently looking for new trainers but are unlikely to be left waiting long given that both fighters will be fighting in October, with Jukembayev pencilled in for October 6th and Sabirov set to fight on October 13th.
A third Kazakh, Sadriddin Akhmedov (3-0, 3) [Садриддин Ахмедов], was also left without a trainer but has now joined up with Marc Ramsey. Akhmedov will also be in action on October 13th, along with Sabirov.
