IBF cruiserweight champion Yoan Pablo Hernandez (28-1) will defend the title against Firat Arslan (34-7-2) on August 16 in Erfurt writes Bild Zeitung. It will be Hernandez´s first fight since November of last year and that in turn was his first fight since September 2012. The layoffs are all due to injuries and illness.

The 43-year old Arslan, not ranked by the IBF, was in action this past weekend and outclassed Hungarian Tamas Bajzath (9-11-1) over eight and was according to Bild under instructions from his trainer to go the full distance to get some rounds under his belt.
 
In the co-feature - and this is not from Bild - it´s likely that super welterweight Jack Culcay will be featured. There have been some attempts to get Jack a shot at EBU champion Isaac Real but the Spaniard will apparently make defense at home in Barcelona during this time.

This is everything that is wrong with a sport that allows four to seven fighters to call themselves "champion" so fat fu cks can fill their pockets with sanctioning fees earned by fighters. I totally dig Arslan but he's 43 and got KO'd badly in his last legitimate fight. So, of course, that makes...
