Kiryl Relikh W12 Eduard Troyanovsky... Earlier on the Yokohama card, WBA 140-pound title holder Kiryl Relikh went through twelve tough rounds against Russia's Eduard Troyanovsky (29-2, 24 KOs) to score a unanimous win in a World Boxing Super Series quarter-final bout. All three judges scored it 115-113 in favor of Relikh (23-2, 19 KOs), who is from Belarus.
“It was a tough fight,” said 29-year-old Relikh who defended his WBA belt for the first time. “I went for the KO so I am not happy with my performance. I saw that I hurt him, but I was surprised I couldn’t finish him.”
The 38-year-old Troyanovsky showed class in the time of the defeat. “I want to congratulate Kiryl,” said Troyanovsky. “It was an emotional fight, my first 12 rounder, and I want to say thanks to Kiryl for a good fight. I did my best.”
Relikh will take on either Puerto Rico’s Manny Rodriguez or Australia’s Jason Moloney in the semi-finals. Rodriguez vs Moloney will also be settled on October 20 in Orlando. source: world boxing super series
