Bursak Now Stripped of EBU Middleweight Championship

By Per Ake Persson

Maksim Bursak lost to Jarrod Fletcher on Saturday night in Monte Carlo in a fight for the WBA International middleweight title and is now stripped of the EBU title. The highest available contenders will now compete for the vacant title. Domenico Spada was the official challenger but he has withdrawn to fight for the WBC interim-title against Marco Antonio Rubio in April.

Billy Joe Saunders has to be in the equation here!

[QUOTE=artfuL_;14208146]Sounds strange to be stripped of a title you did not lose in the ring. Especially when you are the European champ and lose to an Australian fighter.[/QUOTE] No it is not strange. They do this to all European champions…
