Sebastian Zbik Officially Withdraws From The Proksa Bout

By Per Ake Persson

It's now official. Sebastion Zbik (30-1, 10 KOs) has withdrawn from a planned mandatory fight with EBU middleweight champion Grzegorz Proksa (26-0, 19 KOs). Sturm Boxing, the promotional company run by WBA middleweight champion Felix Sturm, won the EBU's purse bid. Zbik had long expressed his issues with fighting under the banner of his old Universum stablemate, Sturm. Instead, Zbik would rather fight Sturm for the WBA title. Sturm was planning to stage the event on March 2 in Germany, but a venue was never announced as it was whispered from that start that Zbik would withdraw.

Proksa will now face the highest available contender.
