Toka Kahn Clary talks November 20 bout, aims to keep improving

Phil Jay 28/10/2015

Undefeated Liberian-born fighter Toka Kahn Clary is delighted to be fighting in Las Vegas once again as the featherweight prospect gears up for a November 20 return to action.

The 23 year-old will appear at The Cosmopolitan in Chelsea Ballroom against an opponent yet to be determined and is looking to build on his impressive sixth round knockout of Jonathan Perez back in June.

“Fighting in Vegas is great because that is where a lot of big name fights take place. I truly appreciate my promoter for giving me these opportunities,” Kahn Clary told World Boxing News.

“I’m sitting down on my punches more. My confidence in the ring is improving, but it’s not where I want it to be yet. It takes time.”

Asked about potential opponents and a possible title shot in the future, Kahn Clary added: “There have been some names thrown in the air, but nothing is confirmed yet. Hopefully soon I can fight for a title, but that’s up to my team and my promoter.

“The top four in my division are Vasyl Lomachenko, Nicholas Walters, Leo Santa Cruz, and Gary Russell Jr. So in the next 12 months, I hope to be a part of the champions in my weight division – or extremely close.”

Headlining the Top Rank event will be Mexican world title contender Gilberto Ramirez taking on Gevorg Khatchikian, although Kahn Clary will be looking to steal the show and cement at 17th straight victory in the pro ranks.
