German welterweight Rico Mueller (16-1-1) will now fight Czar Amonsot (27-3-3) on September 13 in Bernau with the vacant IBO world title at stake. Amonsot can be found at #34 in the IBO ratings at 140 and while he gives away weight and size he does have a lot more experience than the German.
RM Promotion´s matchmaker Mario Pokowietz first secured the services of Polish veteran Rafal Jackiewicz, who is # 49 in the ratings but Rafal pulled out of the fight a few weeks ago to embark on a career in MMA. Then a number of names were contacted but non of them were approved by the IBO until Amonsot got the green light.
