Former Kazakh amateur standout Saparbay Aidarov (1-0, 1) [Сапарбай Айдаров] kicked off his professional career with a 4th win over Indian foe Harsh Purohit (0-2).
Specific details on the bout are harsh to come by, but our Kazakh sources informed us that that the 26 year old Kazakh stopped the 24 year old Indian in the 4th round in Hyderabad, India. Prior to the stoppage Purohit was dropped, hard, from a brutal right hook.
As an amateur Aidarov was a former national champion and competed for the Astana Arlans in the World Series Boxing. That background has seen some tipping him very highly, though his debut didn't really see him tested, as he took on a poor and under-sized opponent.
