Ringnews24.com: What age did you start boxing and What inspired you to become a fighter?

Ringnews24.com: What would you say is your favorite training exercise?

Beibut Shumonov: I love to learn new training exercises. I’m always researching, studying and trying new techniques.

Ringnews24.com: It was obvious very early in your career that you were being fast tracked, was this a choice of your own or the team behind you? Do you feel that this hindered your ability to grow as a fighter?

Ringnews24.com: Do you think a 3rd fight with Gabriel Campillo will ever take place?

Beibut Shumonov: When Braehmer ran out of town, I told my people to reach out to Campillo’s team to see if he could come to Kazakhstan and replace Braehmer for my fight on January 8, 2011. He was preparing for a EBU title fight against Thierry Karl (1/22/2011) that he pulled out of later on. too.

Ringnews24.com: You looked much better against Uzelkov than you had in the Campillo rematch, was this due to an improved training camp or was the Campillo rematch just a bad night at the office?

Ringnews24.com: Who would you like to fight later this year?

I’d like to fight anyone of the other World champions. My goal has always been to unify the world light heavyweight titles and nothing has changed in that respect. If that can’t be done then I’ll keep proceeding forward.

Ringnews24.com: Is it your eventual aim to break the US market?

Beibut Shumonov: I moved to Las Vegas because it is the boxing capital of the World. I’ve been fortunate to have fought on Comcast, Fox Sports, ESPN and I would be honored to fight on Showtime or HBO in the future.

If you could pick 3 fights to happen in boxing what would they be ?

Beibut Shumonov: The three fights I’d like to happen would include the other three world champions in fights against me in order to unify the titles. Of course, I really enjoy seeing the best fight the best in every weight division, and I would love to see Pacquiao vs. Floyd.
