Russian heavyweight slugger, Apti Davtaev took home another monster knockout over the weekend he knocked out unbeaten John Napari, who was 21-0 going into the fight. Davtaev destroyed Napari inside of two rounds and improved to 20-0-1 as a professional with 18 knockouts.
Davtaev, who is signed with Salita Promotions, is training under SugarHill Steward at Kronk Gym which is where Tyson Fury moved to reclaim a world heavyweight title against Deontay Wilder this weekend.
Steward weighed in on Davtaev and his improvement as a boxer and what he expects out of Davtaev in the future.
“Apti has gained world-class skills since we’ve been working together,” said SugarHill Steward. “He is definitely ready to become a force in the heavyweight division in 2020.”
Davtaev has shown leaps of improvements since moving to Kronk Gym under the guidance of Steward. Being only 21 fights in his boxing career, he will continue to improve.
The Akhmat Promotion card featured some of Russia’s best boxing prospects. There were two titles on the line as Islam Edisultanov beat Evgeny Terentiev for the vacant WBC Asian Boxing Council Super Welterweight title. The other fight saw Andrey Sirotkin beat Apti Ustarkhanov defending his WBC Asian Boxing Council Continental Middleweight title.
