Andrei Mikhailovich in a twelve-round contest on July thirteenth on ESPN+ on the Pearl Live performance Theater at Palms On line casino Resort in Las Vegas. The occasion begins at 6:50 p.m. ET.

Janibek’s Quest for Recognition

It’s not the best match-up for the Prime Rank-promoted Janibek to try to flip him right into a star. #3 IBF #10 WBO Mikhailovich (21-0, 13 KOs) is one in all an extended line of obscure fighters that the 31-year-old Janibek has fought throughout his eight-year skilled profession, and it looks as if he can’t catch a break.

Janibek might be the least-known two-belt world champion within the sport, and that has all the pieces to do together with his opposition being obscure guys.

He’s going to must go the necessary route earlier than he’s given an opportunity to struggle for a world title as a result of he’s too good for the WBC and WBO champions simply to present him a free shot.

Farmer (33-5-1, 8 KOs) has gained his final three fights in opposition to random opposition since being dethroned by Joseph ‘JoJo’ Diaz in January 2020. After that loss, Farmer was out of the game for 3 years earlier than launching his comeback in June 2023 in opposition to journeyman Avery Sparrow.
