Ivan Baranchyk 

“This is the biggest fight for me, quarterfinals of the World Boxing Super Series. I’m happy to be fighting for a world title. This is my moment and this is my time. This is beautiful place.”

On what kind of fight to expect: “I’ll beat him all around and stop when the referee stops the fight.”

Anthony Yigit

“I look very much forward to it. I’ve been training here for 2 weeks now with the guys from the New Orleans Boxing Club. I got the work in and my team, they have helped a lot. I feel at home now. For this fight I feel really confident this fight will go my way. Obviously some people think Ivan ‘The Beast’ Baranchyk” is going to come after his prey, but let me tell you guys something. I didn’t fly over the sea to be prey, we’re on a safari and we’re going to hunt beast.”


On his edge over Baranchyk: “I fight differently. I can do everything, I can punch, I can move, I’m explosive, and fast on my feet. I have that warrior’s heart. People are shocked when they fight me and they don’t know how to respond. Whatever they do I have an answer for it, and I think that’s one of the key things I have. I’m a hard worker and always put my opponents out on deep water.”

Yigit may very well out box him if he doesn't get caught with something big

He will have to Dig Deep, but Yigit's got this!

Baranchyk is just an awful boxer and he will get sparked by the end of this tournament.
