Shelestyuk Calls Out Desired Opponent

Taras Shelestyuk, Ukrainian boxing star and bronze medalist at the 2012 Olympics, has called out former WBA Super welterweight world champion Yordenis Ugas of Cuba.

"It will be a great fight! Let’s make it happen," Shelestyuk announced on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Ugas last stepped into the ring in April 2022, where he was defeated by American boxer Errol Spence Jr. via a tenth-round TKO.
