He was jailed for the murder of Zeynep Senipar with a minimum non-parole term of 24 years on October 22.
The raging boxer got into a row with his 24-year-old partner at his home in the Mentese district, south-west Turkey.
He then grabbed a bread knife from the kitchen and stabbed her 37 times in the chest on May 24, 2020.
Paramedics sadly declared Zeynep dead at the scene.
Kemaloglu had also injured himself in the bloodbath and was taken to hospital.
The pair's relationship had all but ended a month before the killing, but the couple had continued to see one another.
