Undefeated Junior Featherweight Powerhouse Arnold Khegai
Returns To Action On August 19
Undefeated junior featherweight Arnold Khegai (12-0-1, 8
KOs), the ethnic Korean, Ukrainian-born strongman, will
return to action on Sunday, August 19, at the Korston Club
Hotel Moscow, in Moscow, Russia in a 10-round showdown with
Uganda’s Remmy Igga (12-5, 6 KOs).
The IBF #15-rated Khegai wowed the boxing world in May of
this year, with a dominant unanimous decision over
well-respected contender Adam Lopez, live on Showtime. With
excellent hand speed and the strength of a middleweight,
Khegai is poised 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 19, he
will take another step towards a world title shot, which
will happen in the near future.”
