Arslanbek Makhmudov vs. Mariusz Wach
Cabaret du Casino de Montreal, Canada – 22 January 2022
Next January 22, Eye of the Tiger Management, in collaboration with La Queen, Mise-o-jeu and Videotron, presents the first event in a series of fights highlighting the 10th anniversary of EOTTM at Cabaret du Casino de Montreal. Arslanbek Makhmudov (13-0-0, 13 K.-O.) will defend his NABF Heavyweight title against Polish Mariusz Wach (36-7-0, 19 K.-O.) in the main event of the boxing card broadcast live on Punching Grace. Yves Ulysse Jr. (20-2-0, 11 K.-O.) will face Antonio Moran (26-5-1, 19 K.-O.) for the super-lightweight NABF belt.
“We are kicking off 2021 with a bang for our 10th anniversary, with three boxing cards in three months. Several of our boxers are knocking at the door of major fights and we expect to use this series to shake up world rankings with worthy adversaries for our athletes who will no doubt provide solid entertainment for our fans in the intimacy of the Casino de Montreal,” states Development Director and head trainer at EOTTM, Marc Ramsay.
In fact, Arslanbek Makhmudov will confront Mariusz “The Giant” Wach in a ten-round bout for the NABF Heavyweight title. “This upcoming fight will be a real test: Wach has confronted very good boxers and has lost by decision. If I manage to beat him, I will gain access to the big names of my division,” says Makhmudov. The 270 lb Pole has confronted quality boxers such as Vladimir Klitschko, Alexander Povetkin, Jarrell Miller, Dillian Whyte and Hughie Fury. “I am excited to fight Makhmudov. I love a challenge and this fight against the Russian sure is one. I will be 100% ready and I’ll be in the best shape of my career. I know that Makhmudov is a worthy opponent and the King of KO, but so far in his career he hasn’t encountered a boxer with as much experience as I have. The Russian never fought beyond three rounds in a fight; he won’t be able to go the distance in a longer fight”, explained Wach.
Yves Ulysse Jr. will also be facing a worthy opponent when he returns to the ring as he will be facing the accomplished Mexican Antonio Moran. Moran has fought major championship adversaries such as Devin Haney, Yomar Alamo and Arnold Barboza, Jr. Moran has claimed the WBA Fedecentro title following his victory against Luis Solis, which he defended successfully once again against Emanuel Colon.
Another headliner from the Montreal stable will be featured; Simon Kean (20-1, 19 KOs) will try to extend his string of victories, and his team will offer him a worthy opponent, soon to be announced. Luis Santana (4-0-0, 2 KOs) will confront Brandon Garcia Orozco (4-1-0, 3 KOs) with a performance as convincing as the one he wielded in his last fight. Avery Martin Duval (5-0-1, 3 KOs) will face the powerful Francisco Javier Lucero (10-3-4, 7 KOs). We will also be witnessing the return of Leila Beaudoin (3-0-0, 1 KO) who returns to the ring after one year, and that of her colleague as well, the undefeated Thomas Chabot (5-0-0, 5 KOs).
