Barthelemy and Relikh will fight for vacant WBA title in San Antonio.

The first-ranked boxer of the World Boxing Association (WBA), Cuban Rances Barthelemy, and the second on the list, Belarusian Kiryl Relikh, will fight for the vacant Super Lightweight Championship (140 lbs) this Saturday at the Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio, Texas.

The Cuban will seek his first title in the division after a long time as a Llightweight. To achieve this, he will have to fight against Intercontinental ex champion of the body, Kiryl Relikh, who has the objective of winning the belt.

The fight will be a rematch between the two boxers, who fought in May last year with a unanimous decision in favor of Barthelemy; however, there was no title at stake at that time.

Barthelemy is undefeated in 26 fights, with 13 knockouts. Relikh has a record of 21 wins, 2 losses and 19 knockouts.
