Undefeated Russian Heavyweight Apti Davtaev Destroys John
Napari In Two Rounds
Last Friday, Russian heavyweight slugger Apti Davtaev
remained undefeated with a two-round demolition of formerly
undefeated John Napari of Accra, Ghana at the Dynamo Palace
of Sports in Krylatskoye, Moscow.
Despite a confident and flamboyant ring entrance, Napari
(now 21-1, 15 KOs) had no answers for the incredible power
of Davtaev (20-0-1, 19 KOs) once the action started. The big
Russian dropped Napari twice with counter right hands, the
second time for good in round two.
Davtaev has been steadily improving under the tutelage of
SugarHill Steward at Kronk Gym in Detroit. The already
freakishly strong Davtaev has been developing outstanding
boxing skills working with Steward and the difference is
obvious with each passing performance.
“Apti has gained world-class skills since we’ve been working
together,” said SugarHill Steward. “He is definitely ready
to become a force in the heavyweight division in 2020.”
Davtaev agrees with Steward’s assessment that his time at
Kronk has made him an even more formidable force.
“I am happy that my training at the Kronk Gym has been
paying off,” said the 6’ 5” slugger from Mayrtup, Russia.
“The goal is to continue to score knockouts and that is what
I plan to do as I continue my march to the world title.”
Davtaev’s promoter Dmitriy Salita says he was also impressed
with Davtaev’s latest beat down. “Apti showed impressive
power and skills in dominating his undefeated foe. He is
ready to beat the big names and will be a new star in the
