Hatton Wins The Guerfi-Zhakiyanov EBU Purse Bid

By Per Ake Persson

Hatton Promotions won today´s purse bids in Rome for Karim Guerfi´s defense of the EBU title against Kazak Zhanat Zhakiyanov with a bid for 21,450,00 Euro. Guerfi vs Zhakiyanov will go ahead later this spring with exact date and site to be announced. Hatton was the sole bidder.
 
The first time around EuroPromo bid with 62,000,00 Euro to promote this fight with Hatton bidding 25,696 Euro. EuroProm then set the fight for April 18 in Morocco only for Guerfi to pull out a two weeks ago due to what was announced as internal disputes with his manager and trainer.
 
Whatever the reason Guerfi will now fight a dangerous opponent away from home for a lot less money.
