Medzhid BektemirovUndefeated light heavyweight contender, Medzhid “B-52” Bektemirov (16-0, 12 KOs), returns to the ring December 5, 2015 at the Osceola Heritage Center in Kissimmee, Florida. Medzhid will square off against Alexander Brand (24-1, 19 KOs) in a scheduled 10-round bout that will be shown live on HBO Latino beginning at 9:45 p.m. ET/PT.

Bektemierov, ranked WBA #12 and WBC #13, is co-promoted by Gary Shaw Productions and Savarese Promotions. Alexander Brand will be a major step up in class for Bektemierov, definitely his toughest fight as a professional. Training out of Houston, Texas, Bektemierov, gives his thoughts on fighting Brand on HBO, his first televised bout.

“Against Alexander Brand, I will have to be at my best,” said Medzhid “B-52” Bektemirov, who’s knocked out three of his last four opponents. “I’ve been waiting for the opportunity to show the world that I’m a real contender. Gary Shaw and Lou Savarese did their part on getting me this fight on HBO, now it’s time to do mine. They won’t be disappointed. Everyone watching on television can expect to see a lot of bombs being thrown from me. I’m always going to be gunning for the knockout early, but will be prepared to go the distance if I need to.”

“Bektemierov has been in the gym working on his craft since his last fight earlier this year,” said Gary Shaw. “He’s waited patiently for a chance to fight on television, and the fans watching on HBO are going to see B-52 drop some heavy artillery. This is a real fight with two top level contenders. Everyone should be tuning in, this is going to be a war.”

“Gary and I know this is a huge step up for Bektemierov, but we feel he’s got the talent and skills to become a world champion,” Lou Savarese said. “The fight will be shown to millions watching on HBO and we feel our B-52 can come out on top. These are the type of fights that build the character of a champion.”
