Tynyshpayev Academy of Transport and Communications, Almaty, Kazakhstan
We return to Kazakh action this coming Monday thanks to a show inn Almaty promoted by Tukeshov. It's not a big show in terms of names on the event but there will be a lot of bouts on the card, with 13 bouts listed. From those 13 bouts we're expecting 14 debuts and not a single fighter on the card has more than 5 bouts to their name.
Despite the inexperience of the men on the show the card does have some interesting potential action on it, most notably the main event. That will be a scheduled 8 rounder between teenage hopeful Dastan Saduuly (4-1, 4) and the debuting Yernar Kiyatov (0-0). We know pretty much nothing about Kiyatov, though we're always interested when a fighter debuts in an 8 round bout, and he may be a hidden gem of sorts. As for Saduuly his competition so far has been incredibly poor, except for Vildan Minasov, who battered him last September. This could be an easy one for Saduuly, or another lesson for the youngster.
One other potentially interesting bout on paper will be the second bout for Artem Pchelyakov (1-0, 1) who faces the debuting Shynarbek Batinuly (0-0) in a 6 rounder, with Batinuly the only other debutant scheduled for more than 4 rounds. Pchelyakov debuted in January in an opening round win and is looking or his second win in less than a month. Sadly so little is known about Batinuly, though we do know he competed in international amateur competition, and was involved in the 2018 Kazakh national championships as an amateur.
