2016 Olympic Gold Medalist Daniyar Yeleussinov from Kazakhstan continued his impressive start in professional boxing tonight in Monte Carlo.
He got the job done inside three rounds tonight in Monaco after he dismantled Marcos Mojica inside three rounds to go 5-0 (3KO).
An easy fight in the end but nonetheless, a serious talent that is developing at the moment fight by fight.
With his amateur pedigree there’s no denying his talent but at the same time, many boxing fans were not happy tonight with the commentary on his fight:
Commentary was abysmal as usual. Wax lyrical about guys like Conor Benn nonstop but shit on Daniyar Yeleussinov for the duration of that fight. Fucking embarrassing & repetitive, practically kept spouting the same shit every 30 seconds.

Matt Macklin has really nailed his colours to the mast with Daniyar Yeleussinov, think he’s being a bit harsh. Got some real good skills. #fightnight

Macklins doing me head in going on about Daniyar Yeleussinov’s power. When you have accuracy and counter punch skills like he does he’s gonna stop people ?

Daniyar Yeleussinov definitely turned down a deal with MTK cause Macklin seems to have a real grudge against him #Boxing

Sky pundits shitting on Daniyar Yeleussinov despite a good performance. Hyping up Kelly who Daniyar schooled in the amateurs. Give him time. I think Kelly is all style and no substance

Commentating aside, this young man looks like a serious prospect and is going to be a big force at welterweight over the coming years one suspects.
