Press Release: Salita Promotions announced the signing of Russian super middleweight Aslambek Idigov to a promotional contract. Idigov (13-0, 5 KOs) hails from Grozny, Russia but is currently training in Detroit with Javan SugarHill Steward at Kronk Gym. The 22-year-old slugger made his debut under the Salita Promotional banner last June, with a unanimous ten-round decision over James Ballard (now 10-2) at the Masonic Temple in Detroit. Idigov also had a quality win in December 2016, a unanimous decision over countryman Igor Selivanov (now 11-2).
“Training in Detroit at the Kronk Gym has helped me in many ways,” said Idigov. “I learned how to train like a pro and am learning different techniques and boxing tactics. It has taken my game to new levels.”
Promoter Dmitriy Salita, who is amassing a large stable of Eastern Bloc fighters, both male and female, says Idigov is developing quickly working out at Kronk.
“Aslambek is a strong, hungry, aggressive fighter. Seeing him improve every day over the last several months, training in Detroit, and his impressive win over James Ballard showed me that he has real world-class potential. At only 22 years old with already several quality wins under his belt, Aslambek is on his way to becoming a force in the super middleweight division.”
