Daniyar emerged from the 2016 Rio Olympics with a Gold Medal and a massive amount of buzz around him. So much so that a foot race ensued among all the major promoters the moment he declared the desire to turn professional and it is clear why, Daniyar is one of the most accomplished amateur boxers of his generation, a slick southpaw with brilliant foot work, a punishing right hook and a lethal straight left hand fired like a sniper’s bullet. Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Boxing was lucky to sign Dani and has been effusive in praise of the young Kazakh saying "Daniyar is a talent that comes around once every 20 years, who is capable to win a world title in two years and then rule the division for years to come.” Invariably comparisons will be made to the other Kazakh superstar of the squared circle - GGG Gennady Golovkin. However, Dani is not the next GGG - he is the one and only Daniyar, who’s popularity arguably rivals that of his “older brother.” Daniyar is a sensation in Kazakhstan and has even been featured on a stamp commemorating his Gold Medal victory in the 2016 Summer Games. Daniyar made his much anticipated debut on the undercard of Jacobs - Sulecki in April 2018. BOXRAW is proud to have Daniyar representing us - the boxer and boxing brand of the future.
