This coming weekend unbeaten Kazakh hopeful Janibek Alimkhanuly (6-0, 2) [Жанибек Алимханулы] will take on his biggest test as a pro so far, as he battles Canadian fighter Stuart McLellan (27-3-3, 11), in a 10 round bout in Los Angeles.
The bout is part of a Top Rank promoted card, headlined by WBO Super Bantamweight champion Emanuel Navarrete (27-1, 23) defending his title against Francisco De Vaca (20-0, 6), with Alimkhanuly relatively deep down the show.
Today it was confirmed that fans in Kazakhstan will be getting the bout shown live, thanks to QazSport TV who have picked up a lot of US bouts with Kazakh fighters involved. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like the channel will be airing the full card, but it's nice that they will shine a spot light on one of their rising prospects.
