EU junior middle weight champ Jackson Osei Bonsu´s defense of the title on May 31 in Antwerp against Italian Giuseppe Langella is postponed or cancelled. "Sugar" Jackson, 43-7-1, was first to defend the title against Spanish champ Ivan Sanchez but the Spaniard was forced to pull out due to injuries and Italian Giuseppe Langella was contracted.
Jackson then fought a non-title eight-rounder against Franck Harroche Horta, 31-10-5, a good boxer but light puncher, and was stopped in two and that put his career in danger. Osei Bonsu was always a devastating puncher with either hand but also with a fragile chin and now there appears to be problems with his recuperative power.
Trainer and manager Renald De Vulder states that he wants "a 100% clearance from the doctors and a 200% motivation from Jackson is necessary if his career is to continue".
