Mamedov, 30, competed in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo and is a five-time Russian champion.

— Do you intend to become a professional?

– Yes, I am ready to box in the big ring at any time, no matter 8 or 10 rounds. But even if Olympic boxing doesn’t let me go, I give it preference: I feel more comfortable here. If senior coach (of the Russian national team) Viktor Borisovich (Farkhutdinov) gives the green light, then I will box as a professional,” Mamedov told .
