Eduard Troyanovsky vs. Julius Indongo on December 3

By Vadim Pushkin

World of Boxing has confirmed that IBO/IBF junior welterweight champion Eduard 'Troya' Troyanovsky will make a voluntary defense of his titles against undefeated Julius Indongo (20-0, 10KOs) on December 3rd in Moscow, Russia.

Indongo was a 2008 Olympian for Namibia and knocked out his last two opponents, both in 2016. He's never fought outside of his home country of Namibia and holds the WBO's Africa super lightweight world title.

The card in December will be headlined by a very anticipated cruiserweight collision between WBA/IBF world champion Denis Lebedev and mandatory challenger Murat Gassiev.


In September in Moscow, Troyanovsky traded punches with another big hitter, mandatory challenger Keita Obara of Japan.

In the fight with Obara, Troyanovsky was rocked in the first round, but overcame that alarming moment to come back strong in the second. He actually scored a vicious combination of punches to knock Obara out of the ring. The Japanese challenger was able to get back inside within the count of 20, but saw himself get battered until the referee jumped in to wave off the contest.

With the victory Troyanovsky improved his record to 25-0, 22 KOs. He also extended his kayo steak to fifteen with this win. Obara dropped down to 16-2-1, with 15 KOs.

In a recent interview, Troyanovsky said he felt ready for the big fights and the two boxers on his list are the other division leaders, WBC/WBO champion Terence Crawford and WBA champion Ricky Burns, who recently retained his world title with a tough decision win over mandatory challenger Kirill Relikh. He believes Burns will be the easier opponent to secure and doubts Crawford will accept the fight.
