Matvey Georgiyevich Korobov (Russian: Матвей Георгиевич Коробов, b. January 7, 1983 in Orotukan, Magadan Oblast) is a Russian professional boxer best known for winning the middleweight amateur world title in 2005 and 2007, and being a part of the Russian team at the 2005 Boxing World Cup.

Amateur career[edit]

Southpaw Korobov, who is famous for his work ethics, won the European junior title in 2001.

He became Russian champ in 2003 and 2004 but did not participate in the 2004 Summer Olympics as his country chose to send Gaydarbek Gaydarbekov, who had lost to him but eventually won Olympic gold.

Afterwards he completely dominated his weight class internationally. He won the world championships in 2005 against Emilio Correa and the European Championships in 2006, defeating Oleksandr Usyk. He calls his World Cup win over Cuban Yordanis Despaigne the hardest fight of his amateur career, he helped to edge out a 6:5 team win.

In 2005 he was part of the Russian team that won the 2005 Boxing World Cup.[1]

At the Chemiepokal 2006 he beat Asian champ Elshod Rasulov.

He once again won the world title by easily beating Sergiy Derevyanchenko and dominating Alfonso Blanco in 2007 by a score of PTS 29:4.

At the 2008 Summer Olympics he was off-form and was upset in his second bout by Bakhtiyar Artayev. He decided to turn pro afterwards.[2] His record was 300-12.
