From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Zaurbek Baysangurov (b.March 2,1985 in Achhoy-Martan, Chechnya) is a Chechen boxer.

Amateur

Chechen junior middleweight (=super welterweight) Baysangurov is a two-times world amateur junior championship bronze medalist (U17 World Championships in 2001 and World Junior Championships 2002 in Cuba) and Russian amateur junior Champion.

Pro

He turned pro for German promoter Sauerland in 2004 at age 18. Hard hitting veteran Marco Antonio Rubio, 34-4-1 (30) put him on the deck in 2006 but was soundly outpointed. Doghouseboxing calls him "a tall fighter for his weight, standing at 510.5. He possesses knockout power in both hands, is quite fast and skilled and is good at putting together combinations. Like almost all young fighters he is sometimes too quick to go for the knockout and this leaves holes in his defense that, until recently, have not been a problem."

He won the European championship in July 2007 with a very close decision over a little-known Frenchman.
