Kevin Lerena is a South African professional boxer who made his professional debut against Justice Siliga on November 30, 2011.

He was a master at cruiserweight for many years, defending his IBO world title six times, but the extreme effort needed to stay within that weight class was taking its toll on the boxer. Lerena made the big move to the blue riband division earlier this year and hopes to follow in the footsteps of other top cruiserweights such as Evander Holyfield, David Haye and Oleksandr Usyk, who became heavyweight champions as well.

Lerena will face one-time unified heavyweight title challenger Mariusz Wach on September 17, 2022, at  Emperors Palace.
