Jarno Rosberg vs. Johan Duhaupa on Oct. 19th

By Per Ake Persson

Finland´s Jarno Rosberg, 14-0-1 and #25 in the EBU-EU ratings, gets a surprise chance to fight for the vacant EU heavyweight title as he battles Frenchman Johan Duhaupas, 29-1, October 19 in Abbeville.
 
Rosberg gets this opportunity after champion Richard Towers officially relinquished the title September 23 which left the promoter with a show all set but without a mainevent fight. Rosberg, inactive since January 2012 but quite active as sparring partner for among others Wladimir Klitschko, thus got the chance.
 
As for Towers he´s all set to fight Lucas Browne November 2 in Hull.
