“It was a very long journey for me to eventually become world champion, and that I intend on showing everybody why I am the greatest light heavyweight in the world,” Gvozdyk explained. “Ngumbu is actually a hardcore fighter that I cannot afford to overlook. My goal in 20-19 is to unite together with the other champions, however once I can do that, I have to take care of business on March 30. ”
“It is a fantastic chance to face arguably the very finest light heavyweight fighter on earth. After 1-2 years and 46 struggles in my livelihood with serious resistance, ” I get my first shot at a big world title,” Ngumbu explained. “I’ve the most respect for Oleksandr Gvozdyk, a excellent winner who took the WBC title in a war against Adonis Stevenson. It is not going to be simple, however I believe I am much more capable as a pro and that I intend to utilize that to my advantage. ”
Gvozdyk (16-0, 13 KOs) captured an Olympic bronze medal because of his native Ukraine in 2012 as part of a national team that comprised two time gold-medalist and prospective promotional stable mate Vasiliy Lomachenko. He increased the positions with wins on the kind of Nadjib Mohammedi and Yunieski Gonzalez and won the WBC interim light heavyweight title last March with a unanimous decision against Mehdi Amar. As the compulsory challenger, he traveled into Quebec City as well as behind on among those 3 judges’ scorecards, knockedout longtime champion Adonis “super man ” Stevenson at the 11th round. Ngumbu (38-8, 14 KOs) is coming from perhaps the most significant win of his career, a 12-round majority decision over then-unbeaten Yoann Kongolo in May of last year. A native of the Democratic Republic of Congo who is now situated in France, now Ngumbu will undoubtedly likely soon be making his first attempt at a world title.
Kavaliauskas (21-0, 17 KOs) is regarded as one of the welterweight division’therefore top contenders, a massive puncher who wrapped through then-beaten Roberto Arriaza in three rounds last November in Oklahoma City. He has knocked out five of the past six foes and could be your WBO’s top contender for the belt now held by pound-for-pound great Terence “Bud Crawford. Robinson (24-3, 12 KOs) is really a rangy southpaw fighter who rebounded from backtoback losses early in his own career into Shawn Porter and Brad Solomon to acquire 1 3 in a row. In his final bout, Feb. 17, 2018 against Yordenis Ugas, he saw winning series came to a end when Ugas scored a seventh-round stoppage.
“” I understand lots of Robinson’s fans are going to take Philadelphia to cheer him on, however they are going to leave the 2 300 Arena disappointed,” Kavaliauskas explained. “This is the year I fight , and win, a welterweight world title. I am ready for anybody, for instance, Crawford-Khan winner. I will show everyone in Philadelphia and watching ESPN what the ‘s Machine’ is all about. ”
“I am always eager to come home and put on for my own city,” Robinson explained. “Every fight is a risk, but the greater the chance, the bigger the reward. ”
Obara (20-3-1, 18 KOs), who comes from Tokyo, is among those division’s most bizarre punchers. He pumped out Alvin Lagumbay in three rounds last August, a measure of revenge on the man who knocked him out in two rounds significantly less than four months earlier.
