Boxer Ulugbek Khakberdiev Signs with EVO as the First Athlete in the Combat Division

Evolution Development Group. Inc. (EVO) announced today that after an extensive search, the combat team has signed Uzbekistan’s Ulugbek Khakberdiev as its first boxer and athlete in the combat division.

Ulugbek has been involved in boxing his whole life and has over 300 amateur fights and his performances decorated him as “Master of Sports of International Class.” Ulugbek joins a large contingent of athletes from Central Asia making waves in Combat Sports.

“We think Ulugbek has huge potential,” said EVO Combat Director and Head Trainer Kevin Barry. “With our guidance and the right nutrition and supplementation he can drop weight in the middleweight division and be a stronger fighter, even with less weight.”

Ulugbek has competed in and won many amateur International Tournaments, including:

2013 Bronze Uzbekistan Championships
2014 Bronze Uzbekistan Championships
2014 Gold “Sydney Jackson Memorial” Tournament
2014 Bronze Russia International
2014 Bronze World Cup, Petroleum Countries
2015 Bronze World University Championships
2015 Gold Uzbekistan Championships
2015 Gold International Tournament Surgut City Russia
2016 Gold Uzbekistan Team Cup

As a professional fighter, Ulugbek is undefeated 7-0 with four wins by KO since turning professional. This record includes an impressive performance against two-time world title challenger Dmitry Sukhotskiy who is 23-5 and who Ulugbek knocked out in round six of his fourth professional fight.

“We really like what we see in Ulugbek so far and look forward to fully evaluating him when he arrives in America,” said Greg Costello, EVO Combat Managing Partner.

Ulugbek was on the Uzbekistan National Team for eight years and graduated in 2016 with a degree in Economics at the Gulistan University, outside of Tashkent. He met his wife at the University and the couple are expecting their first child in the next two months.
