The boxing world is buzzing as fans from across the country make plans to be in Upstate New York to mark an epic International Boxing Hall of Fame (IBHOF) Induction Weekend next month. The main event kicks off Friday, June 10, 2022, at Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, NY.

In the ring, two-time Olympian and 2020 Gold Medalist Bakhodir Jalolov of Uzbekistan - the "Big Uzbek" - (10-0, 10 KOs) will face off with the Belgian rising star "Big Jack" Mulowayi (11-2-1, 7 KOs) in a heavyweight battle for the ages. The fight marks the first time in SHOWTIME's SHOBOX: The New Generation®'s history that a heavyweight Olympic gold medalist will headline an event.

In the stands, 4350 lucky fans will get to watch this 8-round showdown live in person at Turning Stone's Event Center. Across the entire resort, the stage is set to celebrate the biggest event of the season. Tickets are on sale now.


Bakhodir Jalolov vs Jack Mulowayi both have their sights set on becoming boxing's world champion

"Go for the gold." It's a battle cry and mantra that resonates across pro sports and into the professional world as an iconic symbol of victory. After doing just that by winning Olympic gold in Tokoyo in 2020 in the Men's Super Heavy competition, Bakhodir Jalolov immediately set his sights on the next prize: becoming the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.

But the "Big Uzbek", who has been boxing since age 12 and packs a wrecking ball southpaw punch, will have to make it past one of boxing's up-and-coming fighters first. "Big Jack" Mulowayi will enter the ring on a four-win streak and has promised to deliver an explosive performance.

Mulowayi, who fights professionally out of Belgium, is crossing the pond on a mission. He's excited to return to the U.S. and face a contender whose medals don't intimidate him.

Born in Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, boxing is not only in Mulowayi's blood, it's in the zeitgeist of his hometown. Kinshasa cemented its place in boxing's history books when two other Olympic gold medalists - Muhammad Ali and George Foreman - battled it out in boxing's legendary "Rumble in the Jungle" in 1974.

It was in Mulowayi's hometown in the Congo that Ali reclaimed his heavyweight title and earned his nickname: "The Greatest." Mulowayi intends to put Kinshasa back in the boxing world headlines as he makes his own move for a world championship.
