Kanat Islam and Brandon Cook battle for WBA #1 spot

The WBA Inter-Continental and WBO-NABO Champion Islam ‘Qazaq’ Kanat and the undefeated
Canadian, Brandon ‘Bad Boy’ Cook, square off in a blockbuster matchup with an already sold-out venue
at the Saryarka Velodrome in Astana, Kazakhstan on Saturday, September 9th.
Kanat vs. Cook is 2017’s biggest boxing attraction in Kazakhstan selling over 12,000 seats at the
Saryarka Velodrome. However, due to the high-demand of this stellar boxing event, an additional 3,000
seats have been added. Kanat and Cook are 154-pound world-class fighters in their prime going head to
head at a critical time in their respective careers. Both are coming off from spectacular victories and
entering the battle for the 154-pound WBA Junior Middleweight title race.
