Pianeta vs Botha Set, Hammer To Face Hernandez

By Per Ake Persson

German heavyweight hopeful Francesco Pianeta (26-0-1, 14KOs) takes on South African veteran Francois Botha (48-7-3, 29KOs) in the headliner of SES´ show at RWE Sporthalle in Muehleim an der Ruhr on September 7.
 
Pianeta vs Botha was first on for May 16 but the White Buffalo was injured and Oliver McCall stepped in on short notice and was outscored.
 
In the co-feature, WBO and WBFed female middleweight champ Christina Hammer defends her titles againist Dominican Yahaira Hernandez.
 
SES has over the last 12 years promoted shows in many countries but in Germany promoter Ulf Steinforth and his team have staged almost all their events in what used to be East Germany and this is their first show in Nordrhein-Westfalen.

David Price has been offered Michael Grant in Febuary @ Cape town. Surely Price vs Botha would sell better. As for Pianeta, he's never ever fought for the Italian title.
