In the last few days, there has been information that Sebastian Zbik (30-1, 10 KOs) was unwilling to go forward with a planned fight against EBU middleweight champion Grzegorz Proksa (26-0, 19 KOs). The former WBC champion is looking at other opportunities. But as we reported, Zbik's main reason for not moving forward appears to be political.

The recent purse bid was won by the promotional company owned by WBA middleweight champion Felix Sturm, who planned to stage the fight in March in Germany. Zbik, a former stablemate of Sturm, doesn't want to fight for the boxer's company. Sturm was once promoted by Universum, who still promote Zbik, and had a nasty spit to start a rival promotional company, Sturm Boxing.

"It is true that I won't be fighting with Grzegorz Proksa. He is a good fighter and I would be willing to stand with him in the ring, but not now when he's only the European champion. Also, I do not want to fight Felix Sturm. Proksa would be a good way to return after [my last fight], but he's not the only option,' Zbik said.

Proksa is starting to be ducked, I felt something bad when Sturm won that purse bid
