Beibut Shumenov vs Viacheslav Uzelkov Live Boxing
TITLE: WBA light heavyweight title
Venue: Tachi Palace Hotel, California
What at Stake: Beibut Shumenov’s big win earlier this year is still on people’s mind when he won the title in his 10th bout of his very young career so far, now he will be defending his crown against Vyacheslav Uzelkov, who is promoted by Vitaly brothers and is very eager to win the WBA light heavyweight title. In his most recent fight in October 2009 he defeated Thomas Adamek of Czech Republic in just the fifth round of the bout and he will be looking to do something of the same as he takes on Shumenov.
A win in this fight would mean that Shumenov will get the oppertunity to light heavyweight belts against the other champions: Tavoris Cloud (IBF), Jean Pascal (WBC) and Juergen Braehmer (WBO). but before all that he have to take care of very dangerous Uzelkov.
