Denis Nikolayevich Boytsov (Russian: Денис Николаевич Бойцов; born 14 February 1986) is a Russian professional boxer who competes at heavyweight.

Amateur career[edit]

Boytsov has had a decorated amateur career, including the following accomplishments:

  • 2001 won Cadet World Championship at Light Middleweight in Baku, Azerbaijan.
  • 2002 won Cadet World Championship at Heavyweight in Kecskemet, Hungary.
  • 2004 won Junior World Championship at Superheavyweight in Jeju, South Korea.

His record was 115-15.

Professional career[edit]

Boytsov turned pro in 2004 in Germany and won his first 20 bouts with 18 KO's. Later his opponents included Vincent Maddalone and Israel Carlos Garcia.

He has drawn comparisons to Mike Tyson in some circles with his aggressive crowd-pleasing style. He has exceptional punching power combined with fast hand speed.[citation needed]

On 3 May 2015 Boytsov was found unconscious in a Berlin subway tunnel. Due to a severe head injury he was placed in a medically induced coma for seven weeks, and will unlikely return to professional boxing. Ramzan Kadyrov agreed to cover Boytsov's medical bills after his banks accounts were blocked.[1]

Boytsov lived in Germany for more than 10 years before the accident, which was initially related to his boxing activities, as he received multiple death threats in 2013.[2] German court later ruled that Boytsov fell on tracks while being intoxicated.[1]
