Troyanovsky Ready To Compete
For WBA World Title & Ali Trophy
The WBA Super-Lightweight World Championship will be
contested between Kiryl Relikh and his WBA Mandatory Eduard
Troyanovsky in one of the quarter-finals of the World Boxing
Super Series after the Russian former World Champion has
entered the tournament.
38-year-old Eduard Troyanovsky (27-1, 24 KOs) from Omsk,
Russia previously held the IBF and IBO titles and now has
the chance to become a world champion again and win the
Muhammad Ali Trophy in the Super-Lightweight edition of the
World Boxing Super Series.
“I am very happy to take part in the tournament,” said
Troyanovsky. “The Muhammad Ali Trophy is something really
special for any boxer in the world, maybe it could be more
prestigious than championship belts because not everyone can
get this trophy,” said Troyanovsky.
‘The Eagle’ made his professional debut in 2009, he has
impressed ever since with his massive KO power and is
entering the quest for the Ali Trophy with great confidence.
“My motivation to win is my biggest advantage in the
tournament,” continued the Russian fighter.
“We are very happy to announce a world title fight between a
current and a former world champion," said Kalle Sauerland,
Comosa’s Chief Boxing Officer. "These are two amazing
KO-artists. The Bantamweight tournament will be exceptional
and we will announce further high-profile names very soon.”
Three weight classes will feature in Season II of the World
Boxing Super Series with two categories, Bantamweight and
Super Lightweight, already announced.
