Everyone wants to become a world champion. A Russian fighter comes to my house to beat me. It doesn't scare me. I fought with Mexicans, Georgians, Nigerians. No one managed to defeat me.

Sergey Loktev
Who will win: Rakhimov or Fuzile?

Fuzile is a very uncomfortable opponent for Rakhimov. He is also southpaw, he also spent 14 fights and has never lost. In his last fight, Fuzile defeated seasoned Mexican fighter Romulo Koasicha by unanimous decision.
Rakhimov in his last fight defeated Rofhiwa Maemu. Fuzile also defeated Maemu in 2017.
Both Fuzile and Rakhimov spent all their professional fights at home, for the first time Rakhimov leaves the Ural. But this is the right decision - the real champion must be brave.

Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov will win by technical knockout.
