Chagaev, Chakhkiev, Braehmer on Sartison-Balzsay Bill

By Per Ake Persson

Universum announced the main fights for their "Fight Night" card, scheduled for April 21 at the Messe-und Kongresshalle in Schwerin.
 
Headlining is WBA "regular" super middleweight champ Karoly Balzsay, who stepped in for Dimitri Sartison last year, won the title against Stas Kashtanov but injured his back in process, and is now back to face Sartison. Dimitri in his turn injured his knee badly while training for the Kashtanov fight, returned in late 2011  and re-injured the knee. Sartison came back on a Universum show earlier this month but one can´t say he was impressive despite winning. It´s an interesting matchup between two good but injury plagued fighters.
 
In the chief supports, local residents light heavyweight Juergen Braehmer and featherweight Marcel Meyerdiercks will appear.
 
Coming back from injury and an upset loss to Darnell Wilson is veteran Juan Carlos Gomez, an outstanding cruiser and a good heavyweight, who is now reunited with trainer Michael Timm.
 
Unbeaten cruiserweight Rakhim Chakhkiev and former WBA heavyweight champ Ruslan Chagaev are also on the bill.
 
Opponents will be announced.

They said Chakhkiev broke his hand before the Kotlobay fight and that was only a month ago. If that was true then it seems to soon to be fighting again.

I just hope they find decent opponents for Chagaev, Chakhkiev and Gomez. Why not Gomez-Boytsov or Gomez-Chagaev?

Can't wait to se Chakhkiev again.

Nice to see Chagaev starting to fight more regularly -- the only reason he lost to Povetkin was ring rust.
