Alekseev vs Arslan is Finalized For May 11, EWS Arena

Firat Arslan (32-5-1, 21KOs), on the 11th of May in the EWS arena in Göppingen, will challenge reigning European cruiserweight champion Alexander Alekseev (23-2, 20KOs). The event will be co-promoted by Universum Box-Promotion and EC Boxing.

"I am very happy that now everything been resolved. And of course I am even more happy that I get to fight in my home. With the fans behind me I will take the title," says Arslan.
