Dimitrenko vs Mormeck Update, Frenkel-Branco, More

By Per Ake Persson

EBU heavyweight champ Aleksander Dimitrenko will according to the EBU make a voluntary defence of the title in August with Universum promoting. No word on opponent or exactly when and where have been announced.
 
This means that Dimitrenko´s mandatory challenger Jean Marc Mormeck will have to wait - something he apparently is very happy with as the former cruiserweight king still dreams of getting a world title shot at heavyweight and will only fight Dimitrenko as an last option. Mormeck, his own man, has now also joined the long list of French promoters who have problems with getting TV networks behind his promotions.
 
The EBU have now set September as the deadline for agreements for Dimitrenko vs Mormeck.
 
At cruiserweight, OPI 2000 have postponed Alexander Frenkel´s defence against Silvio Branco from June 25 until July 18 with Civitavecchia remaining as the site.
 
EBU light heavyweigh champ Eduard Gutknecht will make a voluntary defence of the title July 16 in Munich - at least according to the EBU. Mandatory challenger is Ukrainian Vyacheslav Uzelkov.
 
Flyweights Kamel Guerfi and Valery Yanchy clash for the vacant EBU title August 19 in La Coruna, Spain.
 
The EBU will hold their annual General Meeting July 11 in Dublin, Ireland. The Swedish Federation plan to bring up the very sensitive subject of suspensions - today the only agreement between the EBU affiliated Federations is that a suspension of a boxer should be respected by the others but this paper is by now not worth much as everyone follows their own agenda - which means a boxer can be suspended on medical grounds by one Federation but secures another license elsewhere and fights on.
