The return of Arnold Khegai

The #15 IBF-rated fighter Arnold Khegai (12-0-1, 8 KOs) will be facing Remmy Igga (12-5, 6 KOs). For Khegai, this 10-round showdown is another step towards a world title opportunity.

Khegai caught the attention of the boxing world early this year with a dominant unanimous decision over top contender Adam Lopez.

The 26 year old jr featherweight contender possesses good hand speed and the punching power of a middleweight. Said power was displayed in his debut bout back in 2015, which he ended by way of knockout.

Igga is a relatively unknown fighter who has mostly fought in Uganda. At the advanced age of 39, the Ugandan native probably is looking at his last days on this level in the sport.

This bout will see the winner continuing their career and the loser taking a huge step backward.

Khegai is ready to make some noise in the division and prove he belongs on the world stage in a championship title bout.

This fight will take place August 19th at the Korston Club Hotel Moscow in Moscow, Russia.
