WATCH: Bakhtiyar Eyubov celebrates ShoBox win with sick dance moves and wig

Bakhtiyar Eyubov won by knockout tonight on ShoBox. Also, he danced, with a wig on.

Welterweight/junior welterweight prospect Bakhtiyar Eyubov of Kazakhstan scored an impressive win tonight on ShoBox: The New Generation, dropping Jared Robinson three times en route to a third round TKO victory, but perhaps even more memorable than his display of offensive firepower was his post-fight celebration:

Eyubov (10-0, 10 KO) still has a long way to go before he's a contender at 140 or 147, but he's now established at least a minor amount of social media notoriety thanks to this really solid dance display. And in a sport where any media attention is seen as a triumph and proof that the sport isn't relatively unpopular, that could be huge.
