Heyman to Face Ahmedov

Max Heyman will move back down to light heavyweight when he faces Gayrat Ahmedov in their scheduled bout on July 29, at the South Point Hotel, Casino, and Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada. Heyman (24-11-4, 14 KOs) hasn't fought since avenging a loss to Mike Alderete in the rematch last November.

Ahmedov (16-0-1, 11 KOs), who is from Uzbekistan, defeated Tursunboy Abdullakimov in January. That 4th round TKO earned him the ever-coveted WBA international light heavyweight strap. Despite winning that title, Ahmedov, 32, is rather untested. Heyman certainly has the experience advantage.

Ahmedov's meaningless belt will be on the line. The bout is scheduled for ten rounds.
