A renowned policeman from New York Dimash Niyazov will hold his first fight in Astana. The fight will take place at the evening of boxing in the territory of the world specialized exhibition EXPO 2017, the "Khabar 24" TV channel reports.

Niyazov scored 11 victories in the ring and was never defeated. In the last fight in Detroit the boxer knocked out the Dominican fighter in the fifth round.

"I miss Kazakhstan very much. If God blesses, I'll come to Kazakhstan. All my relatives are in Shymkent, Astana. Our capital is very beautiful, two months ago I came there. Of course, Nursultan Nazarbayev changed the city. I will be performing with Kanat Islam together at the EXPO in Astana and this will be my first fight in Kazakhstan", - Niyazov said.
