Subsequent struggle: ‘Qazak type’ is making ready to tackle Germany’s IBF middleweight belt-holder, Vincenzo Gualtieri, in a ‘unification’ bout on October 14 in Rosenberg, TX.

When and why you began boxing:

I used to be six years previous. Why? As a result of there was no different sport in our village. First day, I actually appreciated this sport. I keep in mind. I misplaced my first struggle. I assumed boxing was not for me. Then my father stated that if a person began one thing, he should end it. ‘You began boxing now it’s a must to turn out to be a champion.’ Then, I had a aim.

Favorite all-time fighter:

After all, Muhammad Ali. He was not solely boxer he was an awesome individual.

Finest struggle you have got seen: 

For me the most effective struggle is whenever you perceive one thing. I noticed Canelo-Golovkin III, I used to be there and I realised there that I can simply beat Canelo.

Private profession spotlight: 

I believe I haven’t reached my aim but. I need to acquire all of the titles within the middleweight division and should turn out to be the champion in 4 weight courses.

Hardest opponent you’ve confronted: 

I’ve not but had sturdy opponents and by no means will. As a result of once I’m in boxing nobody can beat the Kazak type. Inshallah. It’s not a joke.

Finest and worst attributes as a boxer:

The weak point is that I really like boxing an excessive amount of. And it is best to ask my opponents about my strengths!

Favorite meal/restaurant: 

I really like horse meat, all Kazakhs love horse meat, however sadly there isn’t a horse meat in US.

Finest mates in boxing: 

My greatest good friend is my brother Berik Sultan, he’s all the time there. We got here to America along with nothing. Now we’re the champions. With out his help, with out his braveness, I might not have come to America. He’s the most effective.

Which different athlete would you prefer to be: 

I need to be an athlete who makes a variety of donations. Lots means thousands and thousands of {dollars}. I don’t need to be simply the richest athlete on this planet, I need and will likely be a really beneficiant athlete. That is crucial factor. there are a lot of individuals on this planet who’re ravenous. Some villages don’t have any water. I don’t prefer it.

What’s the one factor you’ll change about skilled boxing? 

If I may change one thing, I might make all of the champions struggle one another.

Have you ever ever been starstruck? In that case, who was the star?  


When was the final time you cried, and why?   

Kazakh males by no means discuss after they cry.

What’s the greatest recommendation you’ve ever obtained? 

My grandfather’s phrases, which I’ll always remember, had been: “No matter you do, don’t overlook that God is all the time watching, it doesn’t matter to whom you do it, however extra importantly for whom you do it and in entrance of whom.”

What’s the worst hearsay you have got heard about your self? 

I by no means take note of rumours. It’s fairly pure after changing into a preferred and well-known individual within the nation. Nobody can change that. Criticism and hearsay don’t change an athlete and don’t contribute to his growth as an athlete. An athlete, a boxer, is perfected by sparring within the health club and every day coaching. Due to this fact, an athlete doesn’t must go on the web and take a look at all of the gossip to see what’s being stated about him. I imagine that point misplaced on the web must be spent within the health club.
