    Taras Shelestyuk is a 28 year old 5'10.5 Junior Middleweight with a 12-0 8 KO's record. Born in the steel town of Makiyivka, Ukraine and fighting out of Los Angeles, California. He has a lot to live up to since he bears the name of Gogol's great fictional Cossack Warrior Taras Bulba and to put more pressure on him Taras is also the son of Poseidon. Shelestyuk won the Welterweight gold medal at the 2011 World Amateur Boxing Championships in Baku. Also rose to the top of the AIBA with 1700 points in 2011 as well. But his most important accomplishment was winning the WW Bronze Medal at the 2012 Olympics. He turned pro in March of 2013, so keep your eyes on this kid Shellyshook as Teddy Atlas calls him:lol: he may very well live up to his iconic name, or maybe not, we'll see.:toney:toney:toney:toney

    I'll check him out, I'm glad Ward is finally going pro, I wish Medzhidov would get around to it already.

    Looked like he showed no respect for the kid and got tagged. He regrouped quickly and got those mitts up protecting his head. Very fast-handed fighter with some real potential. Thanks for all your research and effort.
