Artem Levin is ranked #1 in the world at middleweight, having beaten most of the division’s upper-tier fighters at least once over the course of his career. The highly-decorated Levin is one of the sport’s most unique fighters.

He comes from a small town in the Russian outback. The place is famous for its extensive coal-mining operation and little else, but it has also produced a hugely successful Kuzbass Muay Thai team of which Levin is the star player.

Levin says he started training as a youth in order to protect himself from bullying. It turned out that he was a special talent. His style is based on impeccable timing, hard shots from odd angles and lots of showboating. His evasive defense work has seen him likened to Floyd Mayweather Jr.
