Press Release: Junior featherweight Arnold Khegai (12-0-1, 8 KOs), the ethnic Korean, Ukrainian-born strongman, will return to action on Sunday, August 19th at the Korston Club Hotel Moscow in a ten-round showdown with Uganda’s Remmy Igga (12-5, 6 KOs).
Khegai got a big win in May, a unanimous decision over Adam Lopez. With excellent hand speed and the strength of a middleweight, Khegai hopes to make his presence felt on the world stage in a championship fight.
“I am excited about getting back in the ring and making another statement,” said the 26-year-old Khegai. “I am ready to challenge the best in the world and my opponent is in my way to the big fights I want, so he must go.”
Khegai’s promoter, Dmitriy Salita of Salita Promotions, says Khegai is rounding into top form for an upcoming title shot. “Arnold Khegai is an elite boxer and the best young face in the talent-packed super bantamweight division. August 19th, he will take another step towards a world title shot, which will happen in the near future.”
