Niyazov looking to prove he is New York’s finest on Aug. 25


Dimash NiyazovBROOKLYN, NY (August 3, 2015) – With professional pugilism blazing right now in New York City, one boxing Brooklyn police officer will look to prove he is truly “New York’s Finest” on Tuesday, Aug. 25 at the Brooklyn Brawl in Coney Island.

As part of a stacked card at the Brooklyn Cyclones’ MCU Park later this month, Brooklyn NYPD officer Dimash Niyazov (7-0-3, 5 KO’s) meets Ariel “Fuego” Duran (8-7-1, 5 KO’s) of Queens in a highly-anticipated lightweight bout scheduled for eight rounds.

“I’ll be facing Ariel Duran, who will be my toughest challenge as a pro, as we battle in an eight-round title fight,” said Niyazov, of Sheepshead Bay. “Duran comes down from a higher weight class and is a former New York State title holder. He always brings fire, but I’m going to put that fire out with my style. It will be a battle of the boroughs as I represent Brooklyn, and he reps Queens.”

With boxing experiencing a resurgence in the New York area – making appearances on national TV and looking to return to its golden age, when the sweet science was a mainstay in prime time and the sports pages – boxing champion-turned-promoter Dmitriy Salita begins this year’s Brooklyn Brawl series in a standout venue. Salita is proud to present a stacked card in Coney Island, the seaside amusement destination which provides thrills to hordes of revelers every summer.

“Brooklyn Brawl has produced some of the best fights in the New York area in recent memory and our matches on Aug. 25 have the recipe for the same,” Salita said.

In the main event, former world title challenger Alex Miskirtchian (25-3-1, 9 KO’s) tops the slate against well-known Brooklyn battler Cornelius Lock (22-7-2, 14 KO’s) in a featherweight clash scheduled for 10 rounds. Salita is also particularly excited about a six-round jr.welterweight clash between Treysean “Trigger” Wiggins (6-1, 5 KO’s) of Newburgh, N.Y. and Francisco “El Gato” Figueroa (20-7-1, 13 KOs) of The Bronx.
