Kaboom! Julius Indongo Wins IBF & IBO Super Lightweight Titles With One Punch Kayo

By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent

Moscow, Russia (December 4th, 2016)– You may never have heard of 21-0 southpaw super lightweight Julius Munyelele Indongo of Windhoek, Namibia. Since turning pro in 2008, Indongo had fought two or three times a year in his native Namibia, and held the WBO Africa Super Lightweight title, and was ranked 15 in the world by the International Boxing Federation.


So it came of somewhat of a surprise when the defending IBF and IBO World Super Lightweight champion, Eduard Troyanovsky, 25-0 with 22 knockouts, opted to defend his IBF and IBO world titles in his native Moscow, Russia, on December 3, 2016, against Indongo, 20-0 with 11 knockouts, but a fighter nobody had seen or knew anything about.


Indongo (as seen in the above clip) evidently was given additional training as a power hitter, and dispatched Troyanovsky in 40 seconds with a picture perfect left hook to the jaw. Troyanovsky went out on his back, knocked out. At 36, Troyanovsky’s career is over.


Result: Julius Indongo KO 1 Eduard Troyanovsky, Super Lightweights (0:40)
