Israil Madrimov scored a ninth round technical knockout over Michel Soro to win the World Boxing Association (WBA) super welterweight eliminator fight on Friday in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. 

The home fighter imposed his strength against an opponent of great quality like Soto and after a wide punishment at the end of the ninth round forced the referee to stop the fight.

It was a great victory for the 26-year-old fighter, who is now close to a world title shot and has left a pleasant impression as he has done in most of his fights.

The Uzbek remained undefeated in 8 fights, 6 of them won by knockout, while Soto now has a record of 35 wins, 3 losses, 1 draw and 24 knockouts.
