By Per Ake Persson
The fight for the vacant EBU heavyweight title between Alexander Dimitrenko and Kubrat Pulev, that was planned for March 31 in Kiel, will now reportedly go ahead May 5 in Erfurt.
Sauerland´s Kiel show features Arthur Abraham vs. Piotr Wilczewski as the headliner and in the chief support Eduard Gutknecht will defend the EBU light heavyweight title against Tony Averlant, the reigning EU ruler.
On the undercard amateur star Tyron Zeuge, a light heavyweight, will make his pro debut and, also at 175, Dustin Dirks is again set to take on former EBU ruler Thomas Ulrich.
Super middleweight Henry Weber returns after the loss to WBO titleholder Robert Stiegltiz and he's matched against Lorenzo Di Giacomo and Polish cruiser Matuesz Masternak square off against Mexican Felipe Romero, reigning national champ.
Both of them will only ever be fringe contendersComment by Tiozzo on 03-13-2012
Pulev has been pretty disappointing lately, I think a motivated Dimitrenko can beat him.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (2)
