Madrimov (8-0, 6 KOs), the No.1 ranked Super-Welterweight with the WBA, beat Soro in controversial fashion in their first meeting at the Renaissance Hall in Tashkent, Uzbekistan last December – resulting in the WBA ordering an immediate rematch.

‘The Dream’ hurt France’s Soro (35-3-1, 24 KOs) late in the ninth round, and it appeared Soro would hang tough when the bell went. However, referee Salvador Salva didn't hear the bell and Madrimov landed a barrage of punches after the bell, and the Spanish official stopped the contest.
