Sadly for Sabirov this injury has scuppered what would have been his most significant bout to date. Thankfully though the 25 year old has time on his side, and has time to recover from his injury before fighting again.
The talented Sabirov has already fought twice this year, picking up TKO wins in March and June, though it is disappointing that his injury has come so close to fight night.
Fingers crossed Sabirov will have a speedy recovery, though it is worth noting that the severity of the injury hasn't been documented, so it's hard to speculate on when he may be back in the ring.
