Arslanbek Makhmudov Says He’s Ready for Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury

It was short night’s work for Arslanbek Makhmudov in Mexico, ending Pavel Sour in just over 30 seconds of the first round. It takes the Russian prospect to 12-0.

His promoter Camille Estephan believes Makhmudov is the most feared heavyweight in the world and his knockout power could put anyone to sleep.

“I believe Arslanbek has the type of punch that is not just heavy but quite explosive. Truly the kind of punch that could put anyone to sleep,” Estephan said.

“Arslanbek will defend his NABF title at the end of September and we’re looking for the titles and all the roads that lead to the world titles, which is our ultimate goal.” Estephan added.

Anthony Joshua is now preparing to face Oleksandr Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September. While Deontay Wilder  had a contractual right to face Tyson Fury for a third time.

“So much action in the UK at heavyweight that we are certainly open to fight there. We think he’s ready. It’s a matter of making it through the ranks. Arslanbek is not the type of fighter who is likely to be invited by one of the champions.” Estephan said.

“Currently we say he’s the most feared heavyweight in the world. We believe Arslanbek has a punch that could make Wembley Stadium tremble so we are more than sure most heavyweights already fear him.” he added.

When asked about how target for winning a world title, Arslanbek said  he’s ready whenever for a big fight, for any opponents.

“I don’t know for sure, but I think it’s going to be soon. I think one or two years, I’m going to try to fight for a world title, maybe sooner I think.” Arslanbek said.
