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
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,
