Zaur Abdullaev will fight in the main fight of the RCC Boxing Promotions tournament
The boxer of the RCC Academy Martial Arts Zaur Abdulaev (10-0, 6ko) will participate in the main fight at the RCC Boxing Promotions tournament, which will be held on February 22 in Yekaterinburg.
In the rating fight, he will meet with Colombian Umberto Martinez (33-8-2, 25ko). Martinez has not lost since 2014, with most of his victories he won ahead of schedule. At the same time, in his career there were several fights for WBC and WBO titles, as well as a fight for the WBC Junior World Champion title, but he didn’t succeed.
Abdullayev cannot boast of such an experience - his professional career began less than two years ago. Despite this, he has already become the World Junior Champion and the owner of the WBC silver belt. Now he is on the second line of the World Boxing Council rating, which makes him one of the candidates for the fight for the WBC main belt. Most likely, for Abdullayev, the fight in February will be a preparation for another fight versus the American Javier Fortuna (33-2-1, 22ko), who also claims to be the owner of the world champion belt.
