MTK Global announced on Monday that they have signed huge-hitting Kazakh cruiserweight Ali Baloyev (8-0, 7 KOs) has signed with MTK Kazakhstan.
The Las Vegas-based prospect has stopped all but one of his professional opponents since turning professional in early 2017 and joins compatriots such as Sultan Zaurbek and Abilkhaiyr Shegaliyev on #TeamMTKGlobal. He was last in action last December where he stopped Idris Afinni in Moscow.
Baloyev said in a press release: “I’m proud and enthusiastic about signing for the world’s leading boxing management company and confident they’ll help me achieve my goals.”
“Kazakh boxing is set for a golden era and MTK Kazakhstan is already a huge force with fighters such as Zaurbek, Shegaliyev, Viktor Kotochigov, Nurtas Azhbenov and Zhankosh Turarov on the books.”
“I have a simple goal and it’s to be world champion. This deal brings that dream closer and I can’t wait to get started with my new management team.”
