Denis Boytsov's Sauerland Debut Targeted For Aug/Sept

By Rick Reeno

Undefeated heavyweight contender Denis Boytsov (33-0, 26KOs) has signed a promotional contract with the biggest powerhouse in Europe, Sauerland Event. The General Manager of Sauerland, Chris Meyer, has advised BoxingScene.com that Boytsov will debut for the company in August or September.

Earlier this month Boytsov, 27-years-old, broke away from longtime promoter Universum, after a lengthy contractual dispute. He was being pursued by numerous promoter in Germany and abroad.

"I am happy to be a part of Team Sauerland where I will train under the guidance of coach Karsten Roewer," confirmed Boytsov. "Therefore, I will move from Hamburg to Berlin to be close to the training facilities."

Boytsov was a top amateur before turning pro, winning the 2001 Cadet World Championship at Light Middleweight, 2002 Cadet World Championship at Heavyweight and in 2004 the Junior World Championship at super heavyweight. He finished his amateur run with a record of 115-15.

Over the years, Boytsov's activity level took a hit due to several injuries. In 2010, the boxer underwent two surgeries to correct a right hand injury, and then in 2012 he had surgery to repair an injured elbow. The boxer has already fought twice in 2013 and the injuries appear to be behind him.

The contract with Sauerland runs until 2015. Boytsov is currently ranked the number one contender by the WBO.

"We are excited that we were able to sign Dennis after Universum confirmed that their contracts with him had ended. He had received quite a number of offers from the market but at the end he selected us as his future promoter. He has an unblemished record, all wins in more than 30 professional fights. He might already have his first bout for Sauerland in August or September," Meyer told BoxingScene.com.

I think he beats Helenius, Wach, Pianeta, Charr...Let's hope Sauerland doesn't screw him over like Universum.

I hope he isn't going to be fighting 8 rounders. He will get an opportunity with saurland but is he big enough & can his hands stay healthy? He is pretty small & i want to see him get hit.

Boytsov has broken his hand so often and in the first bigger challenge or in training it will probably brake again.....the guy has no future

[QUOTE=andrewa1;13601965]One of the most overrated HW's, and the worst example of modern HW's ducking champs and contenders. Disgraceful that Ring had him in the top 10 so long, he never fought a clear top 20 HW. Heard Vitali offered him…
