Madrimov’s as well as Kalombo’s integrated ko price of 95 percent is a solid indication that their clash will certainly not go the range. As well as their different designs makes it extremely challenging to anticipate that will likely be initial to land a battle- finishing or battle- altering shot.
Madrimov, in numerous methods, looks like a exploded variation of Royal Prince Naseem Hamed.

In terms of protection, both competitors rack up around a B quality on their progress report.
Do not allow Madrimov’s thin specialist document trick you. Like Lomachenko, Inouye, Rigondieux as well as Beterbiev, the Uzbek cut his teeth in the overdue rankings with a long as well as differentiated amateur job that saw him win numerous globe as well as worldwide champions. Keeping that huge storage tank of experience in his pocket, Madrimov, 26, had the ability to strike the ground running in the prizefighting rankings as well as bypass the normal onset of overturning palookas as well as journeymen. All 6 of his challengers were seasoned gatekeepers with winning documents, 3 of whom had more than 30 battles as well as 2 with over 20 battles under their belts.
Madrimov, like Kalombo, would likely have a one hundred percent knockout price had it not been for a refereeing mistake in his last battle.

A stunned Pedestrian stayed on the canvas for greater than 10 secs as well as in the occurring complication, was offered valuable extra secs to recoup as well as end up the battle on survival setting. Pedestrian (20- 3, 9 KOs) has actually never ever been quit.

In 2018 Kalombo blew up away Samuel Antwi, that was 7- 0 (4 KOs) back then, in 2 rounds. Antwi has actually given that recoiled with 6 victories consisting of interruption triumphes versus challengers with 11- 0- 1 as well as 20- 1 documents, a testimony to the quality of competitor he is. In Kalombo’s 8th battle, he left the canvas in the opening round to quit Nkuluko Mhlongo, after that 20- 6 (14 KOs), in the 5th round. It was Mhlongo’s only ko loss.
While Madrimov has actually dealt with specifically in the USA, Kalombo has actually refrained fight past African coasts.
