Prospect of the Week: Shohjahon Ergashev

Heading into last week, the focus was on young Welterweight prospect Vito Mielnicki, 17, and Middleweight Joey Spencer, 19. Both fighters came out victorious, but neither performance provided anything special for the highlight reels. It turned out to be Super-Lightweight prospect 🇺🇿Shohjahon “Descendant of Tamerlane” Ergashev (18-0-0, 16KO)  of Uzbekistan, that impressed the most Friday night in Sloan, Iowa on ShoBox.
