Ali Ismailov vs Ismail Abdoul
This upcomming thursday former amateur star Ali Ismailov will square off against teak tough cruiser weight gatekeeper Ismail Abdoul who has already fought the who is who of his weight division.
Just one week ago Abdoul had his last fight losing a close point decision to Czech olympic silver medalist Rudolf Kraj.
Former amateur star Ali Ismailov from Azerbeidjan hasnt really come off from the groud yet at the paid ranks.His pro record is 6-1.His only loss was in his 5th pro fight against top ranked Russian cruiser weight gun Vadim Tokarev.
Ismailov is a very rough fighter with impressive pop in his fists.His weak spots are his lack of speed,and his predictiblity inside a ring.
Abdoul is a very tough nut to crack,and I somehow doubt that Ismailov will be able to win a point decision against the very decent Belgian based Arab.However,Ismailov has a puncher's chance.I very much hope that he will be the first fighter who can stop Abdoul.Well,come to think of it,the odds are against Ismailov.Abdoul has gone the full route with Kraj,Suda,Haye,Macarinelli,May,Adamek,Trofimov,Cantatore,and so on.
