Ivan Baranchyk Vows To Win it All in World Boxing Super Series

The IBF Super-Lightweight Championship will be contested between Anthony Yigit and his IBF Mandatory Ivan Baranchyk in one of the quarter-finals of the World Boxing Super Series after both fighters enter the tournament.

26-year-old Yigit ( 21-0-1, 7 KOs) from Sweden competed at the London 2012 Olympics losing by a single point to eventual silver medallist Denys Berinchyk. He is the EBU European Super-Lightweight Champion and IBF Mandatory and is now bringing his explosive and entertaining style to the World Boxing Super Series.

“It's a great opportunity and I'm honored to have been chosen to fight among the best in the division,” said Yigit.

“This Ali Trophy tournament is a great example of how boxing should be promoted: the best fighting the best. That's where I want to be and these are the fighters I want to face!”

“I am really happy to be a part of the tournament because there are chances to take all the titles and show everyone that I am the best in the division,” said Baranchyk.

“My nature, effort and my love of boxing will help me to get the Ali Trophy.”

Baranchyk is exciting - but his flaws will come back to haunt him in a big way unless he gets a trainer to shore up his defense and wildness at times and he takes a more measured approach.
