Kuzmin is WBA No.13.
Both men lost to Michael Hunter...
It's spelled out twice. Both exactly 15-1 and both lost to the same fighter. Crazy coincidence.I'm not sure why you think that's funny. Hunter has really blossomed at HW.
He was also a fine CW, but always weight-drained. He arguably gave Usyk his toughest fight, other than Breidas.
He's big and chubby, he comes forward, has power. Russian champion x2 and fought in WSB. I think he's 6'3'' or 4? Standard height, but quite fleshy. It's not a style you would associate with Russia or Eastern bloc countries tbh.I still haven't seen Kuzmin fight, but Boxrec says he has an astonishingly short 75.5" reach.
The one thing you don't want to do with Bakole is trade on the inside, so this might be a very bad matchup for the lad.
Unless Kuzmin is really good at getting in & out fast.
