For the short life, Bekzat Sattarkhanov has received some awards in half lightweight and has forever entered the name in the history of boxing. It is still being actively discussed what heights the athlete would have achieved if he had been alive at the moment.
Since childhood, Sattarkhanov began to be fond of boxing and take classes in it. In his youth he was already practicing at the amateur level and took part in tournaments, giving high hopes. Soon it became clear that an excellent fighter could grow out of him.
In 1998, he was called to perform at national competitions, where he immediately showed himself no worse than most opponents. But before he really showed himself, as in 2000, 15 minutes before the advent of the XXI century, he had an accident and crashed to death. At that moment he was driving from Turkestan to a neighboring city and could not cope with management on the winter road.
