TURSYNBAY KULAKHMET ADDED TO LEGACY EVENT IN DUBAI
The Jamel Herring vs. Carl Frampton undercard continues to shape up after even more starpower was added to the bill.
The D4G Promotions event in association with Top Rank and Queensberry Promotions takes place at Caesars Palace Bluewaters Dubai on April 3, as Herring defends his WBO super-featherweight title against Frampton.
Kazakhstan sensation Tursynbay Kulakhmet (2-0, 1 KO) will now compete on the show, as he makes the first defence of his WBC International super-welterweight title with a dangerous fight against undefeated Heber Rondon (20-0, 13 KOs).
Kulakhmet has recently relocated to Manchester to train alongside Frampton with coach Jamie Moore, but faces a tough test against WBA Fedelatin champion Rondon.
The Kazakh hero was last in action in November, where he produced a dazzling display to defeat previously undefeated Macaulay McGowan.
Elsewhere on the card, Zhankosh Turarov and Tyrone McKenna meet for the WBO Intercontinental super-lightweight title, boxing legend and former four-weight world champion Donnie Nietes makes his highly-anticipated comeback, and American prodigy Keyshawn Davis returns.
