“The World Boxing Super Series is getting the best facing the best which is precisely what is needed in our sport,” said Relikh.
 
“I am focused on preparing the best that I can to achieve the dream of winning the Muhammad Ali Trophy. The holder of the trophy will be a superstar in the game.”
 
Said Kalle Sauerland, Comosa’s Chief Boxing Officer: “We are thrilled to announce our first gladiator for the Super Lightweight edition of next season’s battle for the Muhammad Ali Trophy. Relikh is a bona fide champion, a heavy-handed KO artist and the first of many world-class fighters in the Super Lightweight pool.”
