Roman Alexandrovich Karmazin (born January 2, 1973 in Kuznetsk) is the former IBF Light Middleweight champion of the world. He is a Russian boxer who has defeated Keith Holmes and Kassim Ouma. He suffered his first loss in 2002, a twelve-round decision against Javier Castillejo of Spain in Castiliejo's hometown.
Karmazin currently has 40 wins, 26 by way of knockout, with two losses. His only draw came early in his career in an eight-round fight against Javier Manuel Martinez in Avilés, Spain. Karmazin also has a no-contest against former title contender Jason Papillion. The 2004 bout was halted when Papillion was cut by an accidental headbutt in the fourth round.
In 2004, Karmazin outworked Keith Holmes to a majority decision in an IBF title eliminator.
A consistent puncher, Karmazin won the IBF Light Middleweight championship through steady work that led to a lopsided unanimous decision over Ouma. On July 8, 2006, nearly a year after his last fight, Karmazin lost his title to Cory Spinks.
Karmazin's corner includes world-class trainer Freddie Roach.
