A WBO boxer once dubbed “Mini Mike Tyson” was sentenced to 10 years behind bars on Friday for using his boxing skills as an “enforcer” and “soldier” to a Brooklyn mob boss.

Middleweight prizefighter Avtandil Khurtsidze was a successful and gifted athlete “who squandered all of those gifts for prestige and thrill and power,” prosecutors said at his Manhattan federal court sentencing.

They said Khurtsidze deserves more than the six years recommended by probation officials because he didn’t need to help mob boss Razhden Shulaya, who was also convicted at trial.

“There is no reason other than the enjoyment of inflicting pain and the power and prestige he thought he could bring to himself,” prosecutor Andrew Adams told Judge Katherine Forrest.

The judge agreed, calling Khurtsidze’s crimes of violence “breathtaking and extraordinary.”

She chided him for being so devoted to Shulaya that he once offered to sexually assault a woman Shulaya was angry with.

“If you tell me it is needed I will give her a good f—k when I see her,” the WBO boxer told his boss, it emerged at trial.

Abházija, IPA: [ɐˈpxazʲɪjə]), officially the Republic of Abkhazia, is a de-facto and partially recognized republic on the eastern coast of the Black Sea, south of the Greater Caucasus mountains, in northwestern Georgia.

Located in the backyard of the Sochi Olympics to the Northwest, the Caucasus republic is wedged between southern Russia, Georgia, and the Black Sea.May 3, 2014
The population of Abkhazia remains ethnically very diverse, even after the 1992-1993 War. At present the population of Abkhazia is mainly made up of ethnic Abkhaz, Georgians (mostly Mingrelians), Hamshemin Armenians, and Russians. Prior to the war, ethnic Georgians made up 45.7% of Abkhazia's population, however, by 1993, most Georgians and some Russians and Armenians had fled Abkhazia or had been ethnically cleansed.
The Russian conquest of Abkhazia from the 1810s to the 1860s was accompanied by a massive expulsion of Muslim Abkhaz to the Ottoman Empire and the introduction of a strong Russification policy.
Many of the Abkhaz diaspora have emigrated to New Jersey.
