Janibek Alimkhanuly goes for more gold against Vincenzo Gualtieri in a clash of champions this Saturday. Janibek, the WBO middleweight champion, has notched two successful defenses against Denzel Bentley and Steven Butler, respectively. Up next for ‘Qazaq Style’ is a unification against Gualtieri, who comes into the fight as a newly minted IBF middleweight champion. ‘Il Capo‘ recently defeated Esquiva Falcao and has his sights set on upsetting yet another favorite.
“Janibek is an outstanding boxer who has done it all as an amateur and a professional, just like Esquiva Falcao,“ said Gualtieri in a press release. “Janibek is a southpaw, just like Esquiva Falcao. Janibek was the favorite, just like Falcao. In the end, Janibek, like Falcao, will lose because I have the better team and the will of a champion. Only that will decide who wins and who loses, just as it did against Falcao.”
