Belgian jr. middleweight "Sugar" Jackson Osei Bonsu was stopped in two by Harroche Horta on March 29 but was then lined up to defend the EU title against Giuseppe Langella on May 31 in Antwerp.
However, Jackson was injured in the Harroche Horta fight and will be sidelined for at least two months. He has thus relinquished the EU title which will now be contested by Giuseppe Langella, 19-8-3, and Orlando Fiordigiglio, 15-0, June 14 or 28 in Arezzo, Italy, with Boxe Loreni promoting.
The winner has agreed to fight Osei Bonsu at the same conditions that was set for Jackson vs Langella on May 31.
The big question is of course if the former EBU champ can come back. It wasn´t long ago that "Sugar" Jackson was on the verge of a big breakthrough at the world title level but he appears to have faded a long way since.
