HOUSTON, TEXAS (March 19, 2015) – Gary Shaw Productions and Savarese Promotions’ undefeated Light-Heavyweight bomber, Medzhidm “B-52” Bektemirov (15-0, 12 KOs), is now ranked #10 by the WBA.
A fighter who has power in both hands, B-52 is eager to continue his climb up the WBA rankings with more explosive performances. His mission is to knock everyone out.
“I’m very thankful to my promoters Gary Shaw and Lou Savarese for getting me rated in the WBA,” said Bektemirov. “I’ve worked very hard to get to this position and I don’t plan on slowing down. I want to be known as the man who likes to drop bombs on my opponents. For these reasons I’m known as B-52. I’m ready wreck the Light-Heavyweight division and knock everyone out.”
“Gilberto Mendoza Sr. and Jr. and the rest of the WBA ratings committee are to be applauded for recognizing the talent of B-52,” said Gary Shaw. “He has all the talent, work ethic and desire to become the next great Russian champion. Lou and I are working diligently on his next fight and were hoping he’ll be back in the ring very soon.”
“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, B-52 reminds me of Mike Tyson,” Lou Savarese stated. “Coming from a guy who fought Tyson, I know raw power when I see it, and Bektemirov can punch with both hands. His knockouts are brutal and everyone who’s seen him fight, knows he’s special. This is the begging of a great run and I couldn’t be happier that he’s ranked with the WBA.”
