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!”

25-year-old Ivan Baranchyk (18-0, 11 KOs) from Belarus is an IBF Mandatory, comes from a solid amateur career and he won the world championship as a junior in 2009. As a professional, he has lived up to his ‘The Beast” moniker.

“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.”

[QUOTE=wildman;18900197]So far none of these names excite me. Yigit, Baranchyk and Relikh are no more than fringe contenders. We know Garcia isn't going to enter. Ramirez is too protected. Hopefully Prograis and Taylor will get on board. Otherwise it's not…

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.
