Anvar Boynazarov was born and raised in Uzbekistan and got into Muay Thai in his youth. When he got older he moved to Thailand to pursue his training full-time in the home of the art. Boynazarov chased his dream of becoming a champion and achieved it when he won the WMF World Championship in the highly competitive 140lbs weight class.
As well as being a two-time WMF Muay Thai World Champion and five-time Bangla Stadium Champion, Boynazarov has been a finalist in the elite-level Toyota Cup Tournament in Thailand, has fought for Thai Fight and Max Muay Thai, two of Thailand’s top domestic promotions, and is 7-1 in fights at the iconic Lumpinee Stadium.
“Boynazarov has a technical Muay Thai game but is also a powerful puncher, he can stop the fight by KO with one blow. He is a real handful in the ring because he has both excellent technique and plenty of power,” observes Cor Hemmers, GLORY matchmaker and Head of Talent Operations.
