Biography and career[edit]

Ramazan was born in Makhachkala, Dagestan, and started boxing when he was 13 years old. At the age of 15 he fell in love with Muay Thai. In 2004 he moved to Thailand with his cousins Arslan and Magomed Magomedov to pursue his Muay Thai career.[1] He settled in Bangkok at Rompo Gym. Within a few years he moved up from the Super Middleweight to Super Cruiserweight division.

He had his first fight in Thailand at the age of 19 and won his first World title in 2004. On December 5, 2006, Ramazan participated in the S1 World Heavyweight tournament, held in Bangkok, Thailand, on the King's Birthday. Two decision victories over Emmanuel Payet and Jafar Ahmadi sent him to the finals, where he was able to defeat Belarusian Marek Dimitriov by low kicks in the second round.[1]

One month later, on January 5, 2007, in Dubai, U.A.E. Ramazan stepped in the ring again and knocked out Dutchman Evert Fyeet in the fourth round to claim the WMC Middle East Title.[1]

On December 8, 2007 in Sydney, Australia Ramazan stopped Steve McKinnon in the 4th round and claimed WMC Intercontinental Muay Thai Heavyweight title.

On July 19, 2008 in Cape Town, South Africa Ramazan became the new WPMF Heavyweight World Champion by beating Pete Motaung the local favorite of South Africa in the 2nd-round TKO win.
