Agit Kabayel vs. Otto Wallin is Ordered By The EBU

By Per Ake Persson

EBU heavyweight champ Agit Kabayel will not be making the voluntary defence of the title that was planned for some time. Instead he is ordered by the EBU to move on to the mandatory defence against Swedish challenger Otto Wallin.

The EBU have set November 13 as deadline for purse bids.

Kabayel, 21-2, promoted by SES, won the title in 2017 with a points win over Herve Hubeaux and have defended it twice with an upset win over Dereck Chisora and a stoppage against Milos Rovjanin.

Wallin, 20-0,  won the vacant EU title in April and later relinquished it and then parted ways with Team Sauerland, his promoter for his entire career. He is now a freelancer.

Danish light heavyweight Jeppe Morell, 9-2, take on former WBA super middleweight champ Dmitri Chudinov, 21-3-2, on November 24 at the Frederiksberg Hall in Copenhagen.

Morell comes in off a points win against Argentinean veteran Ruben Eduard Acosta but the fight against Chudinov still represent a step up in class. Chudinov is by now well known in Denmark for his win against Patrick Nielsen and loss to Lolenga Mock.

This Mogens Palle and Brian Nielsen Promotion also feature WBC Youth cruiser king Detlef Rossing, 9-0, who will defend the title against an opponent to be announced.

On the same night Dennis Ceylan and Jesus Sanchez might clash for the vacant EU 126 lb title - but it´s not yet confirmed by Team Sauerland if they they will go ahead with a show on this date.

Purse bids for Yves Ngabu´s defence of the EBU cruiser crown against Dane Micki Nielsen was to go ahead today but were at the last moment postponed until October 24. No word on why though.

WBSS participant Anthony Yigit is since a few days in New Orleans for final preparations against Ivan Baranchyk on October 27 in a fight that is for the vacant IBF jr welterweight title and a quarter final in the Ali Trophy tournament a/k/a WBSS.

Yigit has for this fight been trained by Carlos Formento in Spain and Joel Grandell in Sweden. Yigit is an underdog with the bookmakers but is a live underdog. Few - if any - train harder than he does and while he isn´t a puncher his workrate alone is quite impressive.

Newly crowned EBU lightweight champ Francesco Patera inherited a mandatory challenger in the shape of Frenchman Marvin Petit when he beat Lewis Ritson this past weekend. Not many took Patera seriously when he was announced as opponent for then champ Edis Tatli but Patera beat him on a controversial decision but lost the rematch.

And when Petit was injured Patera took the chance and stepped in and took on the highly regarded Ritson - Patera again won in a big upset. The EBU have set November 19 as deadline for purse bids.

Agit Kabeyel's record is 18-0, not 21-2 you can be sure of this so you must correct the wrong point.

[QUOTE=Andre_parker1;19205111]this article lacks 'proof reading' as kabayel is undefeated at 18-0 and not 21-2 like the article says...meanwhile this is a good fight for two undefeated fighters.. winner could potentially head off to contender status if he wins in style[/QUOTE]…

good fight, wallin is a very skilled boxer. not much power though. i actually said this fight should be made after he beat granat. i expect wallin to win and then get jobbed on the scorecards in germany..
