Huck-Fragomeni Card; Kabinejad Injured; Lauri-Shafikov

Per Ake Persson
 
Sauerland Event's small Sweden vs. Denmark tournament that was set for April 2 in Herning fell apart apart almost as soon as it was announced as Swedish welterweight Kamran Kabinejad fell and injured himself seriously - suffering a dislocated shoulder and a broken collarbone - while skiing with his family this past weekend. No word yet on a possible replacement, but the guess from this corner is for someone from outside of Sweden.
 
Artur Hein will now take on Francesco Versaci on April 2 in Halle / Westfalen on the Huck vs Fragomeni show. Hein-Versaci is for the vacant EU light heavyweight title and was first set for March 5 in Copenhagen.

Italian veteran Giuseppe Lauri, these days mainly a trainer and manager residing in Budapest, is co-challenger for the vacant EBU jr welter title along with touted Russian Denis Shafikov. The EBU have set the 28th of February as the deadline for purse bids.
 
Las Vegas-based Swedish super middleweight Badou Jack makes his United States debut February 28 in San Bernardino, CA. Jack is an amateur standout, 5-0 in pros and is now promoted by Empire Sports and trained by Eddie Mustafa Muhammad.
 
Belgian lightweight Jean Pierre Bauwens retained the WBC Youth Int´l Sunday afternoon in Antwerp with a sixth round stoppage of outclassed Georgian Beka Sedjaia, who never went down but took a steady beating from the fourth round onwards. In the sixth referee Daniel Van De Wiele had seen enough and stopped it. Veteran cruiserweight Ismail Abdoul stopped Hungarian Joszef Nagy in the second.
