By Per Ake Persson
EBU super welterweight champ Sergey Rabchenko, 23-0, now has Frenchman Cedric Vitu, 35-2, as official challenger and deadline for purse bids are August 20. Vitu replaces Spaniard Rubon Varon, who suffered an upset loss to trialhorse Rafael Chiruta last week. Vitu is ranked # 2 by the EBU and lost a split decision to Rabchenko late 2012 in Manchester in what was Sergey´s first defense of the title he won by stopping Ryan Rhodes.
