Khatayev won a bronze medal at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. He was congratulated on his medal by the so-called head of the republic Ramzan Kadyrov, with whom Imam appeared in public on several occasions. Having started his professional career in the ring in Grozny, the Russian has been hiding shyly behind the Australian flag since Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
