*Julius ‘Blue Machine’ Indongo will challenge Eduard troyanovsky for the IBF and IBO super lightweight world titles. *
*Boxing promoter, Nestor Tobias, said in a press release Monday that the mega fight is billed for 03 December in Russia. *
He said Troyanovsky is a unified world champion and holds both the IBF and the IBO world titles.
“This is therefore considered a super fight and an incredible opportunity for Indongo to cement his place in the world of boxing. To put the
magnitude of this fight into perspective, this fight can be compared to the unification fight between Ambunda and Chucky Flores but an inch bigger,” said Tobias.
He said the Russian remains undefeated with 25 fights and straight wins, with 22 fights coming with knock-outs. His last fight was on the 09h September against Keita Obara winning by TKO and successfully defending
both his IBF and IBO world titles..
Julius comes into this fight with an undefeated record of 20 fights with 20 straight wins with 10 of the 20 fights won by knock-out. He is currently
ranked number fourth in the world by the WBO, and this will be his first world title fight.
Indongo won his last fight against Fabian Lyimo on the 06h August by knock-out and is promoted by the MTC Nestor Sunshine Boxing & Fitness
“We are extremely proud of this opportunity, it is indeed a once in a lifetime opportunity for any deserving boxer, and an opportunity that does not just fall out of nowhere, but one that you have to create over a number
of years coupled with consistency and a good record. Julius started his boxing career on the 25 July 2009 with his first fight against Pohamba Mandume. Today after eight years, and 20 fights undefeated he finally gets
his big break, that is the true essence of a real world title fight”, commented Tobias.
“You would recall that this fight was supposed to take place two years ago when Troyanovsky was only the IBO world champion, the fight was then
subsequently cancelled when he was offered a unification fight with the IBF world champion,” said the promoter.
