Anthony Yigit and Ivan Baranchyk are ready for Saturday’s Ali Trophy Quarter-Finals at UNO Lakefront Arena in New Orleans.
Tickets for the bouts are on sale through TicketMaster.com and at the arena box office.
Vacant IBF Super-Lightweight World Championship:
Ivan Baranchyk, Belarus (25) (18-0, 11 KOs): 140 lb /63.5 kg
“I am the favourite in this fight,” said Miami-based ‘Beast’ Baranchyk. “I am young, hungry, I am the beast! This is a world title, it is a World Boxing Super Series quarter-final. I am ready to fight.”
Anthony Yigit, Sweden (27) (21-0-1, 7 KOs): 139.7 lb /63.36 kg
“It is going to be a war, don’t expect anything less, I am here to win, I am here to hunt the beast,” said Yigit.
"To the experts believing Baranchyk will win the fight - Those people don’t know sh*t about boxing. Look, let me tell you something. They don’t know about me because I am from Europe. Everyone here has seen him fight on the American shows, but I am here and I will shock everybody.”
The winner of Baranchyk vs Yigit faces the winner of November 3rd’s Josh Taylor vs Ryan Martin in the semi-final.
