Medzhid “B-52” Bektemirov Working with Ronnie Shields


Medzhid Bektemirov boxer Co-promoters Gary Shaw Productions and Savarese Promotions are happy to announce the 2015 debut of Light-Heavyweight Russian power puncher, Medzhid “B-52” Bektemirov (14-0, 11 KOs). The undefeated slugger will face James Johnson (28-44-4, 17 KOs) in a 6-round bout at the “Battle on the Mainland” card taking place at the Charles Doyle Convention Center in Texas City, TX on March 13, 2015.

Bektemiorov, who’s knocked out six of his last eight opponents, is looking to keep the momentum going with a spectacular performance. His mindset is to come out guns blazing and go for the knockout early.

“My trainer Ronnie Shields has me working on a lot of different things, but he’s not trying to change my style,” said Bektemirov. “He wants me to stay aggressive without being reckless. I’m ready to drop bombs, hence my name B-52. If the fight goes the distance, I’ll make sure that my opponent takes a lot of punishment. I want to thank Gary and Lou for coming together to take my career to the next level. Everything starts this Friday in Texas City.”

“I’m very pleased from what I’m hearing about B-52’s sparring sessions,” said Gary Shaw. “He’s a tremendous puncher with good footwork. With a veteran trainer like Ronnie Shields guiding the corner, I see him developing into a great fighter.”

“This kid can go,” Lou Savarese stated. “I know we got something special Bektemirov. His name “B-52″ serves him well because he really does drop bombs. I’ve seen him take out a lot of dudes in the gym. I can’t wait to see him get to work this Friday.”
