WBA Confirms Rematch Between Israil Madrimov and Michel Soro
It has been only three months since Israil Madrimov (8-0, 6 KO) destroyed Michel Soro (35-3-1, 24 KO).
The Uzbek boxer was large and in charge as he smashed Soro with punches after the bell in the eliminator of the WBA super welterweight. However, the sanctioning body has ordered a rematch between the two.
Madrimov and Soro will have a month (30 days) to return to phrases and keep themselves away from the handbag bid. The 2014 Asian Games’ silver medalist started like a train as he was up on two playing cards against Soro.
Within the ninth, Madrimov physically damaged the French boxer. The battle was so aggressive and nerve-wracking that neither he nor the referee heard the bell ring.
This lack of communication worked against Soro as the 27-year-old exerted his authority. Madrimov was given the free authority to show his superiority so he can run away with the TKO victory.
Even though this delay is disturbing, the timing is understandable. The winner of this rematch will have the opportunity to go up against the winner of Jermell Charlo or Brian Castano 2.
But before this rematch takes place, Tim Tszyu will likely be given a chance to face the winner between Charlo and Castano. Apart from the WBO necessary, Bakhram Murtazaliev can also be considered a subsequent.
