Their first meeting, in December in Uzbekistan, there was a controversial ending where the referee stopped the fight – after the bell – as Soro was being attacked by Madrimov. After some confusion, Madrimov was given a TKO win in nine. The WBA would later order a rematch.

Madrimov came out jabbing to the head and body. Soro was looking to counter to the head. Madrimov was more aggressive in the second, pressing forward and landing big punches to shake Soro up.

At the start of the third, there was a very bad clash of heads and Soro’s sustained a deep cut above his left eye and it was bleeding pretty bad. The doctors looked at the severe cut and the fight was quickly waved off.
