Euro News: Badou Jack, Nielsen, Ahlin, Lauren, Masson, More

By Per Ake Persson

Both Floyd Mayweather and WBA "regular" light heavyweight champ Badou Jack told Swedish media that next up is a fight against Adonis Stevenson, who holds the WBC belt.

However, the WBA ruled earlier this month that the winner of Jack vs Nathan Cleverly would have to face interim ruler Dmitry Bivol. If no agreement there will be purse bids on September 11.

As previously reported on BoxingScene.com, Danish super middleweight Patrick Nielsen, 29-1, # 2 WBA and # 7 WBC, takes on Brit John Ryder, 24-4, on October 14 in London in a supporting bout to the World Boxing Super Series quarterfinal between George Groves and Jamie Cox, writes BT.

In the event of an injury to the main event fighters, Nielsen will step in. Nielsen has just fought once in the last 20 months, partly due to a handinjury.

Swedish super middleweight / light heavyweight Oscar Ahlin, 14-2, has on friendly terms parted ways with Team Sauerland. What his next move will be is still open but Ahlin is very close to Badou Jack and has been training and sparring with the newly crowned WBA regular light heavy champion. Ahlin has been a pro since 2011 but has had his career on hold a few times due to injuries.

Former WBC super welterweight champ Mikaela Lauren told Viasat Sport that a fight against Noni Tenge September 30 in Stockholm is all set but that there are ongoing negotiations with First Lady Promotions for a fight against WBA; WBC, WBO, IBF and IBO welter champ Cecilia Braekhus on October 21 in Norway. Lauren fought Braekhus in 2010 and was outclassed but was relatively new to boxing then after a long career as a swimmer.

French flyweight Thomas Masson, reigning EBU titleholder, will challenge WBC champ Daigo Higa on October 22 in Tokyo. This fight is on the same bill as Hassan N´Dam vs Ryota Murata.
