Former heavyweight champion Ruslan Chagaev (30-2-1, 19KOs) will now face Yakup Saglam (28-1, 25KOs) on December 1st in Düsseldorf, Germany. Saglam has an impressive record on paper, but never faced a boxer even close to the credentials of the former champ. Chagaev was going to face Mike Perez, who withdrew a few days ago with a shoulder injury. Former middleweight king Felix Sturm is promoting the card.
