Default Russian superheavy Sergey Kuzmin: photos, stats, etc?

What can anyone tell me about Sergey Kuzmin, the Russian superheavyweight who recently won European championships? It's impressive that Kuzmin beat Roberto Cammaralle in that tournament. What's Kuzmin's height and weight, style, physical attributes, and age? Does anyone have any photos?

He's 23. Looks to be about 6"4-6'5". Weight is at least 230 pounds. Kumzin is one of those square cut punchers with a board back, and big legs. Style is that of a puncher. Looks a bit like Sam Peter did on the way up. Kumzin needs some refinement for sure, but he isn't afraid to mix it up.

Bump!!!

I thought he was 22... Russia's superheavies are getting crowded with Kuzmin's emergence and Romanchuk coming back.

As I said in another thread, expect some citizenship papers from former Republics to be filed in order to absorb the overflow.

Nah, we want him even if he's Ukrainian He's a world class boxer, and I think he'll take over in RUssia if he's of the level that he was!

Lviv curses you!!! Well at least you know where the best HW's come from

I'm looking forward to another Usyk vs Mekhontsev matchup.

Lviv would curse me anyway And your last point is debatable. I just think that Romanchuk is one of the most exciting amateur heavies in a long time. Brilliant style of boxing.

Yes, but can Romanchuk recapture his old form?

I think Kuzmin deserved the decision. However Cammaralle seems much slower and less agile than in recent years. He doesn't look nearly as good as when he lost to Timurziev. As for Kuzmin, I can't say I'm overly impressed. Kuzmin looks slow, kind of clumsy. He's a fleshy looking guy, too. I'd say Kuzmin looks a lot like Nikolai Kulpin.

Just for the record, I'm still disappointed that Timurziev didn't amount to more. Outside of Povetkin, Timurziev may have been the most talented Russian super heavyweight since Alex Miroshnichenko (and I think Miroshnichenko had the ability to be a pro champion).

You think? Unlike many other Soviet boxers, we dont need to speculate as Miroshnichenko did go pro, and got demolished by a young and hungry Oleg Maskaev making his pro debut. The loss ended his pro career.

Sometimes the facts are deceiving. Do you know the circumstances of the Miron-Maskaev fight? Maybe Miron was out of shape. Or maybe Miron was unmotivated, perhaps discouraged at not getting a big contract with a major Western promoter. It could be that Miron just didn't care anymore, and was only a shadow of his true self against Maskaev.

Either way, it is no disgrace to have been knocked out by Maskaev. Several years later, Maskaev did the same thing to several leading American professionals, including Hasim Rahman.

I am convinced that Miron did not live up to his true potential professionally. He could have fought on after the Maskaev loss; he should have come to America. Maybe the money offers were just not there for him, and that can be psychologically devastating for a boxer.

Just look at the film of Miron against Bowe in the Olympics. Miron looks fantastic, despite losing the fight. Miron had it all: size, power, speed, talent, strength, toughness. It's a shame he didn't put it all together in the end.

By the way, are you aware that Miron knocked out Ross Puritty? That should give you something to think about.
