Janibek Alimkhanuly makes huge claim following win

Last updated

Janibek Alimkhanuly successfully defended his WBO world title with a second-round stoppage against Canadian contender Steven Butler (32-4-1, 26 KOs) Saturday night at Stockton Arena in Stockton, California.

Following the bout, Qazaq Style spent most of the first round sussing out his opponent, stalking him around the ring and noticing how Butler would overcommit when throwing punches.

The native of Zhilandy, Kazakhstan landed another flurry that sent his opponent down for a third and final time at 2:35 of the second round.

Janibek Alimkhanuly Claim

After taking the win, Janibek made a huge claim about his status as the ‘king’ of the Middleweights, saying that many fighters duck him.

Championsl. Boxing superstars! Where are you? I am waiting. Let’s fight. I am the most avoided boxer. I am the middleweight king. Let’s go. Let’s fight. I am ready for anybody. Anytime. Anywhere.’

It has not yet been confirmed who the Top Rank fighter will compete against next, although it is likely that we will see the 30-year-old southpaw quite quickly after such a dominant performance.
