Denis Boytsov To Return on Huck-Larghetti Card

By Per Ake Persson

Russian heavyweight Denis Boytsov (33-1) returns to action on August 30 in Halle/Westfalen on the undercard to Marco Huck´s defence of the WBO cruiserweight title against Mirko Larghetti, writes boxwelt.com. Boytsov has been out since the upset loss to Alex Leapai in November of last year in what was his first fight for Sauerland Event. The 28-year old turned pro in 2004 with Universum but a series of injuries and contractual disputes have derailed his career and he is now looking to get back on track.
 
Also on the bill is 18-year old supermiddleweight talent Vincent Feigenbutz (14-1). Feigenbutz will reportedly go for the WBO I/C title (the interim version) and defend the GBU I/C belt. Feigenbutz can punch and last year went on the road and stopped then unbeaten Poles Maciej Mizkin (15-0 coming in) and Andrzej Soldra (9-0-1 coming in) so he´s one to watch.

Boytsov had excellent potential at one time (2008-2009) but was ruined by inactivity and very soft opposition after that. And now Sauerland is having him fight just once a year. Sad.
