Khegay will fight on August 10 in Albuquerque

The main event of the event will be the fight between Luis Lopez and Angelo Leo

Ukrainian featherweight boxer Arnold Khegai (21-1-1, 13 KOs) will fight his next fight on August 10 in Albuquerque, USA.

The Ukrainian’s opponent has not yet been named. The fight with his participation will take place as part of the Top Rank Boxing show. The main event of the evening will be the defense of the IBF featherweight title by Mexican Luis Lopez against American Angelo Leo, a former WBO champion in the same category.

Khegai will fight for the first time as a Top Rank boxer. Let us remember that in April Arnold signed a contract with this promotion company.

Previously, it was assumed that the Ukrainian would hold an eliminator fight with Lerato Dlamini (20-2, 11 KO) from South Africa for the title of mandatory challenger for the IBF belt, which is owned by the aforementioned Lopez. It was reported that Top Rank lost the bidding for this fight, and Khegai will receive only 25% of the total purse.

The 32-year-old Ukrainian, we recall, defeated Spaniard Jon Martinez in his last fight in January. Khegai stopped his opponent by technical knockout in the third round.
