Firat Arslan Inks Promotional With Sauerland Event

Firat Arslan (32-6-2, 21 KOs) is the newest addition to Team Sauerland. The former WBA Cruiserweight Champion, who is currently ranked at number two by the WBO, will have his first fight under the banner of Sauerland Event on April 27 at the Sporthalle Hamburg against an opponent to be announced.

The 42-year-old Arslan has a dream - being a world champion again. In November of 2007, he beat former champion Virgil Hill for the WBA Cruiserweight Title but lost the belt in his second defense against Guillermo Jones just ten months later. "I became a world champion at the age of 37. Now it's my goal to win a world championship again," said Arslan, adding: "Team Sauerland is the perfect partner to fulfill that goal. They already have some world-class cruiserweights under contract."

The last time Arslan got the chance to do so was in November 2012. Back then, he lost on points against WBO Champion Marco Huck at Gerry Weber Stadium in Halle/Westphalia. "A rematch is definitely something I look forward to," confirmed the man from Suessen, Germany.

"Firat Arslan convinced us with his attitude - he is a role-model for younger fighters", said Frederick Ness, managing director of Sauerland Event. "With this kind of professionalism he is still able to compete with the world's best at his weight class."

Tickets for the fight night at the Sporthalle Hamburg, Germany on April 27 can be purchased at www.boxen.com and www.eventim.de.

No hate here. He gave Huck a hell of a time.
