Rafael Jackiewicz-Gianluca Branco in Play For June 30th

By Per Ake Persson

Newly crowned EU welterweight champ, Polish veteran Rafael Jackiewicz will defend the title against another old-timer, Italian veteran Gianluca Branco. The planned date is June 30 at a site to be announced in Poland.
 
The EBU have thus suspended the purse bids for Jackiewicz vs his mandatory challenger Karlo Tabaghua but a deal for a fight between these two is reportedly in place.
 
Tabaghua will fight on a tuneup June 29 in Halle an der Saale in Germany and if all goes well he will then be moved towards an IBF I/C title fight September 21 in Belgium against an opponent to be announced - this is a deal that isn´t finalized yet but if all goes well here Karlo will then challenge the winner of Jackiewicz vs Branco.
 
More to come ...

Jackewicz is like Audley Harrison, barely threw a punch against Brook.
