Janibek Alimkhanuly vs. Andrei Mikhailovich undercard: Complete list of fights before main event in 2024 boxing match

On a quest to hold all the gold at 160 pounds, Janibek Alimkhanuly must first defend the IBF and WBO middleweight titles against Andrei Mikhailovich on Saturday, July 13. The fight in Las Vegas airs on ESPN+ in the U.S.

Janibek (15-0) has won all but five fights via knockout. The 2013 World Championships gold medalist won interim WBO gold in 2022, became a full-time champion after Demetrius Andrade vacated the belt and took out Vincenzo Gualtieri in October to capture the IBF title. 

Mikhailovich (21-0) has 13 wins via knockout. The Russian-born fighter based in New Zealand has credited Joesph Parker and others for motivating him. He is fighting three months after knocking out Les Sherrington, needing only one round to take down the Aussie.

A massive underdog, Mikhailovich, with a win, could become the first unified champion living in New Zealand.

“He’s got this spark, that he just wants to go out there and show everyone what he has,” Parker said about Mikhailovich. 

Rising contenders look to prove they can challenge for world titles on the undercard, and young prospects continue to showcase their growing skills.

“I’m ready for the lightweight champions, but I can’t take Tevin Farmer lightly. He is a former world champion who wants another shot,” Muratalla said. “I have a great training team with Robert Garcia and all the fighters at Robert Garcia Boxing Academy, and they push me to get better every fight. On July 13, you will see the best version of Raymond Muratalla.”

Farmer (33-5-1) had a 23-fight unbeaten streak from 2013 to 2019. Impressing Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing, Farmer won the IBF super featherweight title in his second attempt in 2018, holding the belt until losing it against Joseph “JoJo” Diaz. Farmer has gone 3-0 with two knockout wins since then.
