Former WBA cruiserweight king Firat Arslan (38-8-2) returns as previously reported in Kassel (Germany) on EC Boxing´s and Oczan Cetinkaya´s co-promotion on Saturday June 4.
The opponent is now announced and it will be Marko Angermann (11-29-1) that stands in the blue corner. Angermann is not exactly on a winning trend and has failed to go past the second round in his last four fights.
In the headliner Swedish heavyweight Adrian Granat (12-0) takes on Bolivian Saul Farah (59-20-3) in a scheduled ten-rounder that goes out live in Scandinavia on Viasat Fighting.
Light heavyweight Sven Fornling (10-0) and like Granat from Malmoe, Sweden, squares off against Yevgeni Makheietenko (6-4) in another ten rounder. Karo Murat (28-3-1) also at light heavyweight is in against Esteban Hillman Tababary (30-18-2).
Heavyweight Manuel Charr (28-4) have his first fight since August 2015 and takes on Andrei Mazanik (12-7-0). Charr suffered a brutal knockout in his last fight at the hands of current cruiserweight top contender Mairis Briedis, and then a month later he was shot due to a dispute which began on the internet.
Co-Promoter Cetinkaya (21-11-2) hails from Kassel and is to co-headline the show but no opponent is announced yet.
