If super middleweight Lolenga Mock wins over capable Ukrainian Roman Shkarupa next Saturday (Oct 28) in Copenhagen he will then take on former WBA interim-champ Dmitry Chudinov, 20-1-2, already set for November 25, also in Copenhagen.
The contracts are signed reports Danish Fight Night in a press release.
If Mock, 45 years old, wins both of these fights he will be 11-0 in scheduled ten rounders against solid opponents in less than two years. Fighting that often and against that calibre of opponents is almost unheard of in modern day boxing.
Also on the November 25 bill is a defence of the IBF Baltic light heavyweight title against Jeppe Morell - but Morell must get past Maurice Possiti on the DFN show on October 28.
Super lightweight Enoch Poulsen, 5-0, takes on Czech champ Michal Dufek on October 28 and if all goes well he will fight for the WBC Int´l Silver title November 25.
Finally, cruiserweight Ditlev "D-struction" Rossing, 6-0, fights former WBA champ Valery Brudov on October 25 - and again, if all goes well, he will fight for the WBC Youth title November 25 that is also billed as the 60th anniversary for Hall of Fame promoter Mogens Palle in the promotion business.
Former WBA interim super middleweight champ Vincent Feigenbutz takes on Gaston Alejandro Vega on October 27 in Schwerin on the undercard to Juergen Braehmer vs Rob Brant in the final World Boxing Super Series quarterfinal at 168. Should any of the main event fighters for any reason be forced to pull out - Feigenbutz is ready to step in.
IN OTHER NEWS: On Saturday October 21 in Metepec, Mexico, fans got their moneys worth, for as long as it lasted, with an entertaining battle between undefeated prospect William Zepeda and Juan Pablo Borbon for the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) Mexican Lightweight title.
Headlining a card staged by Straight Jab Promotions, both men came to fight from the start, and both showed skill and desire. It was back and forth in the first round, but Zepeda took control in the second and started to land continuously and hurt Borbon on several occasions.
After three action-packed rounds Borbon had had enough, and didn’t come out for the fourth stanza. Winning his first professional title, William “Camaron” Zepeda, still only twenty-one years old, took his record to 12-0 (10). Juan Pablo Borbon falls to 7-2-2 (3).
On the same night, at the Ace Club in Egyptian capital Cairo, WBF Intercontinental Welterweight Champion Andreas “King Cheetah” Valavanis had a somewhat disappointing, albeit victorious, evening. It was however to no fault of his own, and he put on a flawless performance.
Making the first defense of his title, Valavanis was simply too superior to Georgian opponent Vladimer Janezashvili, who was hurt by body-shots in the second round, claimed a shoulder injury, and was saved by his corner when the towel was thrown in and referee Eddie Marshall waved it off. Time of stoppage was 2:50.
25-year-old Valavanis improved his impressive professional record to 10-0 (10), and Janezashvili (35) travels back to Georgia at 12-6-1 (4). The fight was the main event of a show billed as “Bragging Rights, promoted by Richard Nwoba and LB Sports Promotions.
