As an amateur Yeleussinov was a genuine stand out, winning Gold at the 2013 World Amateur Championships, the 2016 Olympics, the 2010 and 2014 Asian games and and the 2013 and 2015 Asian Championships.
His addition to the Matchroom stable will see him fighting not only in the US, on the April 28th cardm but also in the UK with Eddie Hearn expecting the Kazakh to make his UK debut later this year. He's expected to be fast tracked to the top and could well find himself in the world title mix sooner rather than later.
At the moment the full details of his debut, such as opponent, distance and weight, haven't been announced but they are expected to be made public in the near future.
