The name Sergey Kuzmin may not be familiar to British boxing fans, but the Russian is hoping to become a great heavyweight player.
Kuzmin will meet Martin Bakole on Saturday night at the SSE Arena in Wembley, who is on the map of Anthony Joshua’s heavyweight title fight against Kubrat Pulev.
Fans flock to the arenas, turn up their radios and put up TV screens when the heavyweights let go of their hands and the 33-year-old is famous for it.
Not only did Kuzmin retire David Price on Josua’s undercard in September 2018, but he can also lay claim to a 32-second knockout of iron Joe Joyce.
The Russian beat Joyce in 2013 when the pair were only amateurs but is hoping to give « The Juggernaut » a chance to score points in the professional ranks.
« It went very quickly and it wasn’t a very long fight, » he told Sky Sports.
« It’s hard to describe what was on my mind because I couldn’t see much of what he brought into the fight.
« When the fight happens, we’ll see, » he added. “It wouldn’t make sense to compare one fight with another, and amateur and professional boxing.
« But hopefully we’ll meet in the ring one day and we’ll see that I’m very interested in fighting Joyce in the pros in the future. ”
While Joyce is now in number 1. 2 with the WBO after his victory over Daniel Dubois, Kuzmin fights against Bakole for the title of WBC International on Saturday evening.
Tyson Fury is holding the full version of the Belt after stopping Deontay Wilder in February, and Kuzmin is more than ready to go after the « Gypsy King » when the time is right.
« Of course, my goal has always been to fight for a world title, » he concluded. “If Tyson Fury is going to be the champion, I’ll be going after his belt. ”
