Hasbulla Magomedov is a 20-year-old Dagestani social media sensation. He recently made waves in the boxing world when he appeared on Mike Tyson’s podcast, ‘Hotboxin,’.
Hasbulla threw some hands at the former heavyweight champion. While Tyson managed to avoid most of the shots, Magomedov did manage to land a blow on the side of his head, prompting Iron Mike to cross a boundary
Magomedov is known for his connections to the UFC and his interactions with fellow Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov.
But he’s also signed a contract with Dana White’s promotion. Despite his interest in MMA, he has also expressed interest in football and basketball and has done skits with Shaq, Luka Doncic, Cristiano Ronaldo and others.
While Magomedov might seem like an easy opponent for Tyson, the social media star could potentially face another opponent in the form of Jake Paul, who has been boasting about his ability to defeat the former heavyweight champion.
However, Paul recently lost to relative novice Tommy Fury, so it remains to be seen whether he will still pursue a boxing match with Tyson.
As a rising star in the social media world, Hasbulla Magomedov has gained a significant following due to his larger-than-life personality and his connections to the MMA world.
While he is known for his interactions with Khabib Nurmagomedov, his signing with the UFC has also helped him to gain even more recognition.
Magomedov’s appearance on ‘Hotboxin’ is just the latest example of his willingness to branch out beyond MMA and explore other combat sports. While he may not have been able to land many shots on Tyson, his skills as a boxer are not to be underestimated.
