Yesterday news broke from unbeaten Kazakh prospect Sadriddin Akhmedov (7-0, 7) [Ахмедов Садриддин] that he would be back in the ring on March 24th to fight for the WBC Asia title in Kazakhstan.
The talented Akhmedov made his debut in April 2018, in Canada, and raced out to 6-0 (6) by the end of the year, before claiming his first title earlier this year, when he stopped Abraham Juarez for the WBC Youth Light Middleweight title.
Regarded by many as one of the top prospects in world boxing Akhmedov is expecting to have a huge 2019 and although he's likely to be less active than he was in 2018 he will still be moving up and taking on better opponents than he did last year.
The fighter revealed the bout through Instagram, though didn't announce his opponent for the contest, however it appears to be on a card that also features Aidos Yerbossynuly (10-0, 8) [Айдос Ербосынулы] battling against Lukas Ndafoluma (15-1-0-1, 6) and looks set to be a celebration of Kazakh boxing in Almaty.
