Kanat Abutalipov, WSB (World Series of Boxing) first season individual tournament champion is going to return to Astana Arlans club, Vesti.kz reports. According to the boxer, who fought in the London Olympic Games this summer, he decided to take a short break in his professional career, but is going to return to the ring after that.

“The team started the tournament with two victories. The managers have chosen an excellent squad,” Kanat Abutalipov said. “I have watched both matches as a fan and I can say that they were a wonderful show. Every boxer gave-it-all and did his best. I think the fans liked it,” he said speaking about the first two matches of Astana Arlans: against Ukraine Otamans and against USA Knockouts.

Question: Were there any moments, when you were uncertain of Kazakhstan’s boxers success? Our rivals were not weak, besides there was a fight of former clubmates – Ruslan Myrsatayev and Istvan Bernat.

Answer: I know that the guys had a strong determination. They moved forward in tough situations and this helped them at crucial moments. As for Ruslan and Istvan than their bout was even. Istvan looked better in the end of the bout, but Mursatayev performed better by the total points.

Question: Kanat, what are your plans for the future? When you are going to return to the ring? Are you going to continue in the WSB?

Answer: I am having a short vacation now. I’d like to start feeling that I miss the ring and training sessions. When this moment comes, I will decide what to do next. As for the contract with the WSB, I like this tournament, where boxers fight without helmets along the rules of professional boxing. Amateur boxing has also come to this and this is superb. Of course, I’d like to fight and make fans happy with my victories. I hope this moment will come soon, and the management of the Club will meet me half-way and I will become Astana Arlans boxer. I will make this decision in the beginning of next year.
