Steve Herelius (born July 15, 1976 in Noisy-le-Grand, Seine-Saint-Denis, France) is a French professional boxer. Herelius has held the WBA Intercontinental Cruiserweight Title as well as the France Heavyweight Title (from 2003–04).

Professional career[edit]

Nicknamed Centurion, Herelius turned pro in 2002 and after winning his first fourteen fights fought veteran heavyweight Albert Sosnowski in 2007 and lost via TKO. After fighting mainly journeyman opposition he positioned himself to challenge Firat Arslan for the vacant WBA interim Cruiserweight belt. Arslan was coming into the bout after an extended absence, and was unable to continue after taking a hard uppercut from Herelius at the end of the 11th round. On February 12, 2011, Hérélius lost the WBA interim Cruiserweight belt to Yoan Pablo Hernandez by knockout of the 7th round.[1]
