Zaurbek Baysangurov (born March 2, 1985) is a Russian boxer and the former IBO and WBO Light Middleweight Champion.

Amateur[edit]

Chechen junior middleweight Baysangurov is a two-times world amateur junior championship bronze medalist (U17 World Championships in 2001 and World Junior Championships 2002 in Cuba) and Russian amateur junior Champion.

Pro[edit]

He turned pro for German promoter Sauerland in 2004 at age 18. Hard hitting veteran Marco Antonio Rubio, 34-4-1 (30) put him on the deck in 2006 but was soundly outpointed. Baysangurov won the European championship in July 2007 with a very close decision over a little-known Frenchman named Hussein Bayram.

In December 2008 he lost via an upset 5th round KO to former The Contender star Cornelius Bundrage.
