Matvey Georgiyevich "Matt" Korobov (Russian: Матвей Георгиевич "Мэтт" Коробов; born 7 January 1983) is a Russian professional boxer who has challenged once for the WBO middleweight title, in 2014. As an amateur he won consecutive gold medals at the 2005 and 2007 World Championships, and represented the Russian national team at the 2005 Boxing World Cup.

Amateur career[edit]

Korobov won the European junior title in 2001.

He became Russian champion in 2003 and 2004 but did not participate in the 2004 Summer Olympics as his country chose to send Gaydarbek Gaydarbekov, who had lost to him but eventually won Olympic gold.

He won the world championships in 2005 against Emilio Correa and the European Championships in 2006, defeating Oleksandr Usyk. He calls his World Cup win over Cuban Yordanis Despaigne the hardest fight of his amateur career, he helped to edge out a 6:5 team win.

In 2005 he was part of the Russian team that won the 2005 Boxing World Cup.[1]

He once again won the world title by easily beating Sergiy Derevyanchenko and dominating Alfonso Blanco in 2007 by a score of PTS 29:4.

At the 2008 Summer Olympics he was off-form and was upset in his second bout by Bakhtiyar Artayev. He decided to turn pro afterwards.[2] His record was 300-12.
