Heavyweight David and Goliath: in the fall, Lerena was going to beat the giant from Poland


30-year-old South African heavyweight Kevin “The KO Kid / Two Guns” Lerena (27-1, 14 KOs) will fight the next – third in this division – on September 17 against 42-year-old Polish veteran Mariusz “Viking” Waha (38-8, 19 KO).

The fight will take place in the arena at the Imperial Palace near Kempton Park in South Africa.

Recall that in the first fight in the category over 90.7 kg, Lerena stopped Patrick Ferguson in the 5th round, and in the second he knocked out Bogdan Dina in the 4th round.

Lerena outboxed Ukrainian Kucher

A rather small (185 cm) south-hander from South Africa will look like a dwarf next to a much larger (202 cm tall and 208 cm rich) ex-challenger Vakh, who weighed almost 118 kg in his last fight on February 19, when he flew into Arslanbek Makhmudov by knockout in 6 -th round.

In February 2020, Hopkins’ record stood: Lerena destroyed “grandfather” Arslan. The promoter of the South African promotes him as “a breath of fresh air, Tyson style.”
