Description:
Ruslan Chagaev (; ; ) born October 19, 1978 in Andijan, Uzbek SSR, Soviet Union) is an Uzbek former WBA heavyweight boxing champion of Tatar ethnicity. As an amateur boxer, he has won the Asian and World Championships in the heavyweight (81–91 kg) category.

Chagaev won the WBA title in 2007 with a majority decision victory over Nikolai Valuev, but was made "champion in recess" after he sustained an injury. He relinquished the title after failing to have a rematch with Valuev. In his next fight, Chagaev lost by stoppage to IBF, WBO and IBO Champion Wladimir Klitschko.

Amateur career

Chagaev, a two-time world amateur champion, defeated legendary Cuban boxer Félix Savón to capture the gold medal at the 1997 World Championships but was then stripped of his crown for having two professional fights prior to the championships. Chagaev was reinstated as an amateur the following year when the fights were declared exhibitions.
