Kiryl Relikh Signs Up For 140lbs WBSS




WBA Champion Kiryl Relikh is the first announced fighter for the 140lb edition of the second season of the World Boxing Super Series.

 

28-year-old Relikh (22-2, 19 KOs) from Baranovichi, Belarus and fighting out of Minsk won the vacant WBA 140-pound title in March with a one-sided unanimous decision victory over Cuba’s two-division titleholder Rances Barthelemy.

 

Relikh is known for his come-forward style and power and he is determined to take home the Muhammad Ali Trophy.

 

“The World Boxing Super Series is getting the best facing the best which is precisely what is needed in our sport,” said Relikh.

 

“I am focused on preparing the best that I can to achieve the dream of winning the Muhammad Ali Trophy. The holder of the trophy will be a superstar in the game.”

 

Said Kalle Sauerland, Comosa’s Chief Boxing Officer: “We are thrilled to announce our first gladiator for the Super Lightweight edition of next season’s battle for the Muhammad Ali Trophy. Relikh is a bona fide champion, a heavy-handed KO artist and the first of many world-class fighters in the Super Lightweight pool.”

 

Three weight classes will feature in Season II of the World Boxing Super Series with two categories, Bantamweight and Super Lightweight, already announced.
