Bosnian cruiserweight Enad Licina returns to action May 7 in Neubrandenburg on the undercard to Sylvester vs. Geale. Licina was last seen losing to IBF ruler Steve Cunningham. Licina takes on Michele De Meo. With Sauerland´s stronghold over the cruisers, don't be surprised if we see Enad in a major fight soon.
