Muhammad Shekhov came to professional boxing with a serious baggage of amateur experience. Many times, he reached the final of the Russian Championship, won the Russia-India and Italy-Russia match plays, as well as various international tournaments in Hungary, Albania, Argentina, Poland and Cuba. His participation at the Olympic Games in London has become the real recognition of his skill level.
His debut took place on 22 September 2018. For the first time Muhammad Shekhov entered the professional ring at the RCC Martial Arts Academy in Ekaterinburg. In a six-round fight by unanimous decision, he won his first victory over Stepan Maurer from Chelyabinsk.
