"The Opposition Was Weak." Sirenko on His Latest Win

Ukrainian heavyweight boxer Vladyslav Sirenko (20-0, 18 KOs) shared details about his return to the ring and why he couldn't fight earlier in a commentary for Tribuna.com.

- What can you say to those who criticize you for facing an opponent with a negative record?

- Indeed, the opposition was weak.

I would also prefer to fight in higher quality matches. But such opposition is what I needed for a comeback after such a long break. I needed to test how I feel in the ring and what I need to work on.

- In the past two years, have you received any offers to fight any well-known boxers, and if so, who?

- There were quite a few offers for fights.

Most recently, I had an offer to fight Australian boxer Justis Huni in a show in Saudi Arabia.

But something changed, and another boxer ended up participating.

On the night of April 3rd, Sirenko returned with a technical knockout victory in the 3rd round over American Deon Ronny Hale (5-18-1, 4 KOs). This victory marks Sirenko's first win since 2021. The Ukrainian spent nearly three years out of boxing, overcoming several injuries and undergoing surgery for them.
