Sturm Box Promotion, headed by WBA middleweight champ Felix Sturm, submitted the winning financial sum during Tuesday's purse bids in Rome for EBU middleweight champ Grzegorz Proksa´s mandatory defense against Sturm's former stablemate at Universum, Sebastian Zbik (30-1, 10KOs). Proksa (26-0, 19KOs) won the vacant title in October with a third round stoppage of Sebastian Sylvester.

Sturm Boxing bid, according to Bild, 176,100 EUR for the fight. Sauerland Event finished second with a bid for 153,079 EUR while Proksa´s promoter Matchroom came in third at 100,001 EUR. Universum, Zbik´s promoter, sent in their bid by fax - something that appears to be against the EBU rules and thus their bid wasn´t recognized.
When and where this fight takes place is unknown, but according to Bild - Sturm Boxing is looking to do the fight in Zbik´s hometown of Schwerin, a town in what used to be East Germany. The location is home to Traktor Schwerin, one of the best amateur clubs in Europe and boxing always does well there.

i expect proksa to dominate this fight and martinez/chavez jr to pretend that he doesn't exist afterwards.

This is a good matchup, interested to see more of Proksa after his break out performance. He was so dominant against Sylvester
