Andriy Kotelnyk (Ukrainian: Андрій Котельник; born 29 December 1977), best known as Andreas Kotelnik, is a Ukrainian former professional boxer who competed from 2000 to 2014, and held the WBA super-lightweight title from 2008 to 2009. As an amateur he won a silver medal in the lightweight division at the 2000 Olympics.

Amateur career[edit]

Professional career[edit]

Kotelnik made his professional debut on 16 December 2000, scoring a first-round knockout against Peter Feher. On 24 January 2003, Kotelnik won his first regional championship—the vacant WBA Inter-Continental light-welterweight title—following a unanimous decision (UD) over Fabrice Colombel. He defended this title twice before a career first loss on 21 October 2004, a split decision (SD) against Souleymane M'baye. On 9 July 2005, Kotelnik challenged European light-welterweight champion Junior Witter, but lost via UD.[2] In his next fight, on 26 November 2005, Kotelnik defeated Muhammad Abdullaev via UD to win back the vacant WBA Inter-Continental light-welterweight title, as well as the vacant WBO Asia Pacific light-welterweight title.

A rematch against M'baye on 30 March 2007, this time with M'baye's WBA light-welterweight world title on the line, ended in a split draw.[3] Almost exactly a year later, on 22 March 2008, Kotelnik won the aforementioned WBA world title—now held by Gavin Rees—by stopping the champion in the twelfth and final round.[4] Two successful defences were made: a UD against Norio Kimura on 13 September 2008,[5] and a close SD against future world champion Marcos Maidana on 7 February 2009.[6] In his third defence, Kotelnik lost the title to Amir Khan after a clear UD.[7] After more than a year of inactivity, he returned on 7 August 2010 to face unified WBC and IBF light-welterweight champion Devon Alexander, but lost a UD which was widely viewed as controversial and a "robbery".[8][9][10]

Having spent more than four years out of the sport, Kotelnik had a farewell fight on 4 October 2014, winning a dominant eight-round UD over Alexander Benidze.[11]
