However he returned to win the title in the 2001 Amateur Boxing World Championship against Alexei Mazikin. He also represented Uzbekistan at the 2000 Sydney Olympics and the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.


As a professional, he started on August 21, 1997, against Donnie Penelton, whom he beat by knockout in the first round. His next fight was that same year but he returned to play amateur tournaments until after the 2001 Amateur World Championship. At the end of that year he continued his professional career against Everett Martin and after 23 matches without losing he had an opportunity for the title of the Association World Boxing against the Russian Nikolay Valuev. Valuev was unbeaten but lost the fight by decision in twelve rounds against Chagaev who became the new world champion. His first defense was made at the beginning of 2008 against Matt Skelton, who won by unanimous decision in twelve rounds. Subsequently, due to various injuries that prevented him from defending his title, he became champion in recess, until his fight with the IBF-WBO-IBO champion Wladimir Klitschko, where despite not putting his title into play, he was stripped of his status by the World Boxing Associate after losing the fight.
