Sebastian Zbik Backs Away From Grzegorz Proksa Shot?

By Luke Furman

Several Polish sources are reporting that middleweight Sebastian Zbik (30-1, 10 KOs) is backing away from a potential fight with EBU champion Grzegorz Proksa (26-0, 19 KOs). A recent purse bid was held, and the winner bidder was Sturm Boxing, which is run by WBA champion Felix Sturm. They want to stage the fight on a March date in Germany.

The issues appear to be political.

One of the problems, according to some parties, is the fact that Sturm is major division rival to both Zbik and Proksa and now he controls a fight between the two men. Zbik is also promoted by Universum, the former promoter of Sturm. Universum and Sturm had a nasty split, involved with a legal battle, and Sturm managed to break away and started a rival promotional company.

Hmmm.... Whats the problem? There was a pursebid. Sturm's Company won it. The article says nothing about an issue other than there is some politics and possible conflicts of interests but nothing specific. Boxingscene needs to do better. So far there is no substance to this 'story'.
