From the office of WBC President Dr. José Sulaimán:

The WBC Celebrates its United States Heavyweight Champion Magomed Abdusalamov

Magomed Abdusalamov and Sampson Lewkowicz

The WBC wishes to express its pride in Magomed “Mago” Abdusalamov, the WBC U.S. heavyweight champion, for his latest win over a strong contender and his activity in putting his title on the line again in only six weeks.

Last week, Mago earned a hard-fought battle over Puerto Rican Olympian Victor Bisbal in a fight telecast across the USA on ESPN’s “Friday Night Fights.” Mago increased his undefeated record to 17 wins, all by knockout/TKO, knocking Bisbal down and causing the fight to be stopped in the fifth round.

Abdusalamov proved again that he is willing to challenge all contenders, handing Bisbal only his second loss (and his first since 2006), and now with a record of won 21 (15) – 2. A decorated ring veteran, Bisbal fought on the 2004 Puerto Rican Olympic Team. He also won gold at the 2002 Central American and Caribbean Games and a bronze at the 2003 Pan American Games.

This week, Mago’s promoter, Sampson Lewkowicz, announced that Abdusalamov would stay very active and immediately make his next title defense against challenger Sebastian Ceballos 33 (25)-7-2, on the same show on which WBC world middleweight champion Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez will defend his WBC crown against Martin Murray in Buenos Aries on April 27.
