UNDEFEATED JUNIOR FEATHERWEIGHT POWERHOUSE ARNOLD KHEGAI RETURNS THIS SATURDAY IN RUSSIA

WBA #13 featherweight, WBO #7 and IBF #8 junior featherweight Arnold “Arni” Khegai will return to action on Saturday, March 30 at the Ice Palace in Vladimir, Russia.

The undefeated ethnic Korean, Ukrainian-born slugger (14-0-1, 9 KOs) will face Dar-Es-Salaam, Tanzania’s Haidari “Blue Fire” Mchanjo (10-5-4, 4 KOs) in a 10-round junior featherweight showdown.

27-year-old Khegai, whose family is from North Korea, but was born and raised in Odessa, Ukraine, had a strong 2018 with three impressive victories.

In May, he took a unanimous decision over respectable veteran Adam Lopez on ShoBox: The New Generation. Then, after a quick stoppage of Uganda’s Mudde Robinson Ntambi in August, he returned to ShoBox in November to take another eight-round unanimous decision, this time over well-regarded contender Jorge Diaz.

“I had a great training camp and I look forward to making another statement on March 30,” said Khegai. “There are a lot of talented fighters and great champions at super bantamweight and I want to fight them all.”

“Arnold has shown that he is a top contender in the division and another impressive victory will get him one step closer towards fighting for the world title,” added his promoter, Dmitriy Salita.

I've been in the boxing industry for over 16 years but been a fan for almost double that figure. I'm the proud owner of TopClassBoxing which continues to go from strength to strength as we strive to give fight fans a voice to be heard amongst the community. I've also had several articles published by reputable magazines and you can usually catch me around ringside.
