Even before the fight with Murgia, the Russian boxer was often talked about, noting his excellent fighting skills and talent. Former American professional boxer, now promoter Dmitry Salita, noted that Ali is a superstar in the making and that he is already ready for fights with Dmitry Bivol and Artur Beterbiev.
Dariush – there is nothing in Makhachev’s actions that he could not do better.
For his part, Ali’s coach, John David Jackson, spares no words of praise for his pupil. He noted that when the time comes, Izmailov will beat all the boxers who have world titles. Among these, he singled out Beterbiev, Álvarez and Bivol. Isn’t that too harsh a statement?
In the last fight, Izmailov knocked out the experienced Marcelo Molina in the first round. The victory was for him the tenth in his professional career (the seventh, by knockout).

Thus, Ali entered the top 10 light heavyweight boxers according to the IBF (now fifth). He also occupies the eighth line of the world ranking of the world’s strongest boxers in 17 weight categories. At the same time, Izmailov continues to progress rapidly under the strict guidance of John Jackson.

In the next fight, Ali expects a good test of strength. Charles Foster spent 22 fights in his professional career and won them all (12 by knockout). The American has a lot of experience. He repeatedly defeated up-and-coming fighters, notably Alvin Vermall Jr.
However, Foster’s best form was in 2018 and 2019. After that, his condition deteriorated. The American’s form was affected by the coronavirus pandemic. On the eve of the fight with Izmailov, he expressed the hope that this fight will return him to the lost positions. Does not matter how!
Charles had no rivals of Izmailov’s level. Yes, the American has many victories, but most of them were won in fights with little-known boxers. Therefore, he only ranks 15th in the IBF ranking.
What to bet?
The meeting is unlikely to end quickly. As we have already noted, Foster is an experienced fighter with good stamina. Much less is believed in his success than in the victory of the Russian, but surely he will manage to prevail in the fight. Most likely, the meeting will last at least seven rounds.
The calendar is pleased with the matches of the national teams:
Ronald Koeman will get away with it. Who will win the League of Nations?
At the same time, Izmailov looks like a favourite. A talented fighter sweeps away everyone in his path, quickly approaching the level of Artur Beterbiev and Dmitry Bivol. Ali’s team prophesies that in the future he will be able to beat them both. Well, it’s impossible to rule out such a possibility, but you need to defeat Foster first.
Tender: Ali Izmailov’s win and total over 8.5 rounds for 1.98.
Express with a coefficient of 10.51.
