Team Proksa: Sebastian Zbik Withdrew From Our Bout

By Ruslan Chikov

Members of Grzegorz Proksa's team are reporting that former WBC middleweight champion Sebastian Zbik has withdrawn from a planned fight on March 2. Zbik (30-1, 10 KOs) was the mandatory challenger to the European middleweight title held by 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.
