Alekseev vs. Masternak Purse Bid is Won By Sauerland

By Per Ake Persson

Sauerland Event won the purse bids for the right to stage the mandatory EBU cruiserweight title fight between Alexander Alekseev and Polish challenger Mateusz Masternak, who Sauerland promote.

Sauerland - the only bidder it seems - bid 80,000 EUR. Date and site will be announced in the near future.
 
Alekseev, promoted by EC Box Promotion,  was scheduled to defend the WBO I/C title Friday night against Agron Dzila but pulled out due to illness.
 
Alexeev, 23-2-1, and an amateur standout, turned pro with Spotlight Boxing in 2006 and seemed like a can´t miss prospect but had his career derailed by Victor Emilio Ramirez and Denis Lebedev. Alexander won the EBU title earlier this year and drew with Firat Arslan last time out and while he is very good he still isn´t back to what he once was.
 
Masternak, 28-0, signed with Sauerland this year and has been brought along slowly since turning pro in 2006, although he has some good names on his record.

Masternak is one of the current prospects I want to see more of the most. Glad he is staying active, but with as many fights as he already has under his belt, saying he has been brought along slowly is…

Good fight. Whilst I think Alexseev has some damn good skills, I don't think his chins up to par. Masternak K.O/TKO for me.

Very good matchup. Alexeev is highly skilled and talented, but lacks toughness, while Masternak appears to be the complete package of skill, power, and heart.
