The WBA number 1 ranked Super Welterweight, Uzbek Israil Madrimov, got a new victory in his career against the Congolese Emmany Kalombo in a fight held on Saturday at the Humo Arena, in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

Madrimov won a wide unanimous decision with cards of 100-89, 99-90, and 98-92, in a fight in which he gave his all in the ring against an opponent who was not easy and was undefeated.

The Uzbek used his waist movements very well while going forward and nullified his opponent’s boxing. He used his left hand well to throw power punches and sapped the African’s physical condition as the rounds went by.

It was another victory for Madrimov, who looks like a strong challenger for a world title in the short term. The 26-year-old fighter won his seventh professional fight, fifth by KO, and remained undefeated, while Kalombo now has a record of 14 wins, 1 loss, and 14 KOs.
