Comments Thread For: Sebastian Zbik Officially Withdraws From The Proksa Bout
It's now official. Sebastion Zbik (30-1, 10 KOs) has withdrawn from a planned mandatory fight with EBU middleweight champion Grzegorz Proksa (26-0, 19 KOs). Sturm Boxing, the promotional company run by WBA middleweight champion Felix Sturm, won the EBU's purse bid. Zbik had long expressed his issues with fighting under the banner of his old Universum stablemate, Sturm. Instead, Zbik would rather fight Sturm for the WBA title. Sturm was planning to stage the event on March 2 in Germany, but a venue was never announced as it was whispered from that start that Zbik would withdraw.

I don't blame him for withdrawing, it should be illegal for Sturm to promote a fight between his two rivals.
I think Proksa would've beat him, but it was a good fight and I hope the replacement is a quality one. Hopefully it takes place in the UK because he should get more recognition over here considering how good he's looked on British undercards.

MW's and HW's are the top 2 divisions where contenders refuse to fight each other.

The Top EBU contenders are

He's gonna fight one of these guys. The only available guys that I recognize are Darren Barker and Martin Murray. I doubt they'll take the fight for whatever reason. Looks like he'll be fighting a no name.

Proksa looks like the real deal. Hope to see him in with one of the other "champions" by the end of the year. Zbik will spend the next few years fighting c-level opponents until his promoters find a softy for him to fight for a "title."
