Yonatan Landman to Fight Next Week

Fresh off a win in Ghana last month, Yonatan Landman is scheduled to fight again next Tuesday, July 9 in Baku, Azerbaijan. Landman has been moved well by his father Shai. This will be his fourth fight in under six months, a rarity these days.

BoxRec lists Landman's opponent as 23 year old Aghasalim Mustafazade of Baku. Mustafazade lost his only pro fight back in 2021. He was over the featherweight limit in that fight while Landman has been either a flyweight or super flyweight in his bouts, more than ten pounds lighter.

A 19 year old from Kiryat, Israel, Landman has shown good power in either hand early in his career. He's 3-0 with three KOs. He has started his fights a bit frantically, but once he settles down, he exhibits controlled aggression. While he has the ability to step up the competition, there's no need to rush. His dad recognizes it's important to build up Yonatan's experience at this stage of his budding pro career.

This bout, Landman's second in Azerbaijan, is scheduled for four rounds.
