Ukrainian boxer Denys Berinchyk, holder of the WBO International Champion title, is waiting for three more fights in 2019, BoxingScene reports.
According to Ukraine’s General Director Oleksandr Krassyuk, the Kyiv Sports Palace Arena is already reserved for the fight scheduled for late April and plans to arrange three additional fights for Berinchyk throughout the year.
“Our matchmaker is working on to get a top 15 rated foe for Denys so that we would have every reason to believe we can elevate him to a mandatory position soon,” said Alexander Krassyuk, according to the BoxingScene article.
Denys Berinchyk, who competes in the lightweight category needs few more top rated opponents to get the opportunity to contend for the champion’s belt.
“The irony of the situation is the reigning belt holder of the World Boxing Organization at lightweight is WBA/WBO/Ring unified champion and P4P top-rated Vasiliy Lomachenko (12-1, 9 KOs), a fellow Ukrainian who was a long-time teammate of Berinchyk in the Ukrainian national team as an amateur. The boxers still have a great friendship,” according to the article.
