Promoter Don King is planning on promoting his first fight in Kazakhstan. King, who promoted the Thrilla in Manila featuring Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier, and the Rumble in the Jungle with Ali and George Foreman, is now planning to work his magic for the Kazakhstanian people.

 

The card will feature hometown hero and WBA cruiserweight champ Beibut Shumenov defending his title against “interim” belt holder Arsen Goulamiriam of France in the month of May.

 

“I’m excited about the prospect of Shumenov returning home to defend his title and meet both the outgoing and the new President of his country,” said King. “I’m planning to put together another great Don King Productions extravaganza. It will be a night of boxing that Kazakhstan and the United States will not forget.”

 

Shumenov, (18-2, 12 KOs), has won four consecutive fights, the last coming on July 7 last year when he stopped Hizni Altunkaya in the ninth round to win the vacant WBA Cruiserweight title. The 31-year-old is from Shymkent, Kazakhstan and currently trains in Las Vegas, NV.

 

Goulamiriam (24-0, 16 KOs) is a 31-year-old Frenchman, who last March stopped previously unbeaten Ryad Merhy in the 11th round to notch the interim title and then kept the interim title last October in his homeland, with a ninth round KO of Mark Flanagan.
