Million Dollar Beibut

Story and photos by Chris Cozzone

If you’ve had it with boxing’s overgroomed babies, meet undersold Beibut – Beibut Shumenov, that is.

With just a dozen fights and a quarter of the light-heavyweight championship tucked into his belt, Shumenov is on a mission to show the sport that years of coddling and a diet of fresh ducks will get you nowhere but stale.

Defending his WBA strap in his 13th bout, Shumenov, 11-1, 7 KOs, will be taking on former title challenger Danny “Bronx Bomber” Santiago, 31-4-1, 19 KOs, Friday night at the South Point Casino in Las Vegas. The six-bout card is televised on Telefutura’s “Solo Boxeo” and co-promoted by Shumenov’s KZ Event Productions, Golden Boy and Don Chargin . . . Click here for story and gallery
