German cruiserweight Artur Mann (6-0) has signed a promotional deal with Sauerland Event and makes his debut for his new promoter on May 7 in Hamburg as part of the Kubrat Pulev vs. Dereck Chisora undercard.
Mann is trained by Hartmur Schroeder and managed by Winfried Spiering.
The opponent on May 7 is no other than former WBA champion Valery Brudov (42-8). Brudov is not what he once was but then again Mann has yet to be tested and is in tough.

Shayne Singleton will take on Adil Anwar in a classic war of the roses clash for the vacant WBC International Silver Welterweight title at the Manchester Arena on May 7, live on Sky Sports.
Singleton claims home turf for the battle, and it’s the second time the Lancastrian has fought for the strap having met Sam Eggington for it last March.
Former Prizefighter champion Anwar returned to winning ways with a first round stoppage win in March and is looking for a route back to a second crack at a British title.
Singleton and Anwar clash on the undercard of Anthony Crolla’s first defence of his WBA World Lightweight title against the dangerous Ismael Barroso, and they are joined by Hull’s Lightweight favourite Tommy Coyle making his return to action after injury, Hosea Burton defending his British Light-Heavyweight title and Manchester Light-Middleweight Marcus Morrison.
