    Heavyweight Sultan Ibragimov and his cousin Timur are scheduled to fight on Mar.3 in New York at the Theatre at Madison Square Garden.Sultan's opponent will be former cruiserweight champ Al Cole and Timur's will be Ron Bellamy(nevah hoid a dah bum) The fight is being held at MSG because the last time these two fought on the same card together at Brighton Beach N.Y. they had a turn away crowd.Granted it was a small venue,but it clearly shows that there is interest in the Ibragimov's.

    Can you guys imagine if these guys fought in Harlem?Man
    would that be a riot waiting to happen.MSG will be a
    good spot for them to get their names more well known.
    I hear really good things about both of them.I love a
    heavyweight with lots of power.There is nothing better
    than a good clean knockout!

    I hope the Ibragimov's win with ease!Valuev fights this saturday in Germany,I hope he wins too.Just read an article on Calvin Brock,thinks he's tough even though Vidoz beat him in the amateurs.Boxing will give us more respect as a race as these White fighters keep on winning.Hopefully it will spill over into football,baseball and basketball when we show ESPN and the networks we're not punks out there.More scholarships for white males-more NFL and NBA draft picks.I want all top ten heavyweights to be white.Ten years ago who would have thought boxing would restore the pride and turn the tide.These White fighters I hope will wipe the smile off ESPN's kisser.

    The Ibragimov's scored most impressive wins on Thursday night.Timur decked his opponent Ron Bellamy with a big right hand in the third round and the fight was stopped as Bellamy had to be carried out on a streacher.Sultan also won his fight in the 3rd round with a TKO win over Al Cole.A left hook to the body followed by an uppercut put Cole down,he got back up but was hit with a barrage of shots and the fight was ended.

    I believe al cole ko'd jameel mcline in the first round in mcllines very first fight. That tells me alot about the imbragimov boys. i haven't heard alot about them until recently but with this victories i believe they could have a big impact in years to come.
