In Israil "The Dream" Madrimov's (5-0, 5 KOs) last fight in Frisco, Texas at The Star, the home of the Dallas Cowboys training complex, a new and exciting junior middleweight to the boxing world was revealed.
And after he dismantled Charlie Navarro (29-10, 22 KOs) in front of a full house, he turned a somersault to the delight of the crowd.
For being a part of the undercard of the Mikey Garcia vs Jessie Vargas, he stole the show with his fancy footwork, punching power and his ambidextrous boxing style.
Hailing from Khiva Uzbekistan, junior middleweight Madrimov is one of the most exciting fighters in the boxing world. The #2 ranked 154 pounder in the world dropped Navarro twice before a big KO in the sixth.
Madrimov now has plans to keep his undefeated record and knockout streak against Eric Walker (20-2 9 KOs) from Louisiana on the streets of downtown Tulsa Oklahoma to be shown live on DAZN.
Madrimov is now the Co-Main event on the Welterweight title clash between defending WBC, WBA, WBO and IBF welterweight world champion Cecilia Brækhus and Jessica McCaskill.
Other bouts on the card include:
Israil Madrimov vs. Eric Walker, 12 rounds, junior middleweights
Shakhram Giyasov vs. Francisco Rojo, 10, junior welterweights
Marc Castro vs. Raul Corona, TBA, featherweights
Nikita Ababiy vs. Jarvis Williams, TBA, middleweights
