Akhmedov was so successful in his amateur days but has blown away six out of seven opponents in the ring, running on a 4KO streak which involves getting off the floor to stop Ismael Barroso in August.

During his Amateur days, Akhmedov competed under the name Batuhan Gozgec and got a gold medal at the 2015 International Kadyrov Tournament held in Grozny, Russia.

He earned a bronze medal at the 2016 European Boxing Olympic Qualification Tournament, which also gave him a slot in the Olympics. The Olympics didn't didn't go as planned, as he didn't win any medal.
