Cruiserweight prospect Alexey Zubov, a Russian-born boxer with a tremendous amateur predigree, and 6-0 (4 Kos) mark as a professional, has been signed to Star of David, the promoter announced today.
The 28-year-old right-hander Zubov is 6-2 1/2, owns power in both hands, and will be moving to NYC to make his stand in the professional ranks. He debuted in April with a KO1 win, and Salita sees a bunch more of those type of victories coming in the near future.
“Alexey is one of the best prospects in boxing,” Salita said. “He has the skills, size and work ethic to be a cruiserweight and heavyweight champion. The invaluable experience he gained as an elite amateur will help him progress quickly in the pros. I am confident that Alexey’s aggressive style will make him very popular amongst boxing fans and in New York’s Russian community.”
Good news for fight fans, then; Zubov will fight on a Salita pro boxing card Jan. 22, at Webster Hall, in Manhattan.
Zubov’s manager, Leo Khorolinsky, who also handles lightweight ace Denis Shafikov, shared some insights and thoughts about the Russian prospect. “Zubov was a very good amateur, a national champion, and he’s done well his first few fights. I think he is very talented, and he’s been sparring with some of the best people out there. He should be able to do very well at cruiserweight, and then possibly move up to heavyweight. He just needs to adjust more to the pro style, be more selective with his punches. And true success is just a matter of time! I believe in him, and he’s an interesting prospect to watch. He has everything it takes to be a future star.”
