Top Rank inks former Euro champ Kabayel

Unbeaten former European heavyweight champion Agit Kabayel (19-0, 13 KOs) has signed a promotional contract with Top Rank, which will co-promote his bouts with SES Boxing. He is ranked #4 by the IBF and #9 by both the WBO and WBC. Kabayel made three defenses of the Euro title before vacating the crown to pursue opportunities stateside. He will make his Top Rank debut on an ESPN platform in either late 2019 or early 2020.

  • Good for him. He gained no momentum really from beating Chisora and Chisora is the one in numerous high profile fights even though he doesn’t deserve it.
    Hopefully Agit will get a top contender now.

  • Kabayel’s best win so far was against Dereck Chisora. He was also a sparring partner of AJ and there are rumors that he knocked down AJ. Kabayel is not spectacular but very composed in the ring and he can box. If he can improve some, he could become a legitimate top 20 HW.
