Bad Left Hook Live Boxing Results and Commentary: Beibut Shumenov v. Vyacheslav Uzelkov

Beibut Shumenov defends his light heavyweight belt tonight against Vyacheslav Uzelkov.

Tonight at 10pm EDT on ESPN2's Friday Night Fights, Beibut Shumenov will make the first defense of the WBA light heavyweight title that he very controversially won in January from Gabriel Campillo. Shumenov (9-1, 6 KO) will defend against the dangerous Vyacheslav Uzelkov (22-0, 14 KO), who holds a very legitimate win over Campillo, a KO-6 back in 2007.

Shumenov, 26, has been incredibly ambitious in his first ten fights, trying to win Campillo's title in his ninth bout after taking legitimate competition from the get-go, facing fighters far above the level that we usually see in any prospect's first pro fights. This will be his first fight under the banner of Goossen Tutor Promotions.

The 31-year-old Uzelkov doesn't have the strongest record in the world, but the Campillo win was a really good one. Frankly, Shumenov might already have the better record between the two fighters. Neither man is what you'd call a defensive specialist (to put it lightly), and they love to throw punches. This could be a tremendous fight, and is one more than worth tuning in to see.

In the co-feature, Gayrat Ahmedov (14-0-1, 9 KO) will take on Dallas Vargas (22-4, 16 KO) in a light heavyweight bout. Ahmedov is a 31-year-old Uzbekistan native relocated to Las Vegas. Vargas, who was born two months premature and is hearing impaired (thus his "Deaf Pride" nickname), has been around the block against guys like Jean Paul Mendy and Jesse Brinkley, both of whom stopped him. He's a proper step forward for Ahmedov.
