Venice, CA - OLA “Kryptonite” AFOLABI has been named the mandatory challenger by the International Boxing Federation (‘IBF’) to cruiserweight world champion YOAN PABLO HERNANDEZ.
 
According to the IBF, the world title bout must take place by December 31, 2014.
 
Hernandez, 29-1-0 (14KO’s), won a split decision over Firat Arslan this past Saturday, August 16 in Erfurt, Germany in the fourth defense of his title.
 
A native of London, England, now residing in Los Angeles, Afolabi, 21-3-4 (10KO’s) was very happy when presented with the news by his promoter, TOM LOEFFLER of K2 PROMOTIONS.
 
“I’m thrilled to be challenging for the IBF world title. Tom and K2 have done a great job promoting me and putting me in this position and I will take the title from Hernandez.”
 
Said Loeffler, “We’re excited that Ola is now the mandatory challenger for the IBF Cruiserweight Championship.  Ola has proven to be one of the best cruiserweights in the world and we strongly believe that he will bring home the IBF world title in this fight.”

Ross isn't serious about fighting - part time fighter at best. Good skill, but doesn't really have his heart in it. Unfortunate as he gave Cunningham and Hernandez very tough outings.

[QUOTE=Loque-san]Cunningham, Arslan, Afolabi. But to be fair Huck didn't exactly make light work of them. Cunningham knocked him out, he got a gift decision against Arslan (in their first fight) and has had three close bouts againt Afolabi. These are good leftovers.[/QUOTE] Huck knocked himsel...
