South African boxer Kevin Lerena believes he can reclaim his heavyweight title in his fight against Poland’s Mariusz Wach on Saturday.

When it comes to boxing, the International Boxing Federation recognises only one heavyweight champion.

Lerena, an Under Armour athlete, is known as the “Golden Boy of SA Boxing” and has won seven IBO Cruiserweight titles.

He will face Wach in Johannesburg, where all 1000 seats at the ‘Lights Out’ tournament at Emperors Palace have been sold out.

With his fighting spirit, Lerena believes he is ready to honour South African boxing.

“I’m South Africa’s warrior, and I’ll prove my worth in the ring as a Top 10 heavyweight contender,” he said.

“I have no fear of men and am not intimidated in the least. It’s just a fight, and skills win the night.”

At 106 kg and 1.85m tall, Lerena believes he can eliminate with precision execution because his opponents underestimate his abilities and he maintains his mental, physical, and emotional well-being.

“Because skills pay the bills, I pick my punches as I move around the ring. To top it all off, mental preparedness and exponential results go hand in hand “Lerena stated

“I train twice a day for 90 minutes in the boxing gym, 60 minutes in the conditioning gym, and 45 minutes on the treadmill, road, or track.

“As a heavyweight, I supplement this with a balanced nutritional diet consisting solely of performance-inspired foods, anything that aids in performance!

“I visualise the victory and replay the fight in my head all the time, especially while training, because it helps me be prepared for whatever my opponent throws at me. And I’d like to remind my fans that I have a professional boxing record of 27 wins, 1 loss, and 14 knockouts.”

If Lerena wins his heavyweight fight, he could face Britain’s Tyson Fury in the next round.

His next goal is to fight in the UK, at Wembley or the O2 arena.

“There are no limits for Lerena, and he knows he is on a roll,” his manager, Peter Smith, said.
