Felix-Promotion´s show at the Thury Castle in Varpalota featured super welterweight Balacz Bacskai on top and he didn´t disappoint as he stopped tough Argentinean Jean Carlos Prada, 36-7-1, on a TKO in the third round of a scheduled ten-rounder.

Prada took two counts in the second but kept trying but in the third he doubled over after a left uppercut to the body and it was stopped. Bacskai, an excellent amateur, is now 7-0.

In other action welterweight Flavius Bieia, 14-1, stopped Frenchman Chaquib Fadli in the fourth, cruiserweight Cezar Juratoni, 8-0-1, drew with Yassine Habachi, 5-10-4, over six and middleweight Barnabas Hegyi, 3-0, scored his third first round knockout - this time over Jasmin Dananovic, 12-10.

Swedish heavyweight Pezhman Seifkhani, 9-0, knocked out Hungarian Zoltan Csala, 11-17, in the very first round in Szentgotthard, Hungary. Seifkhani scored two knockdowns and will now get ready for a shot at a minor title in the early fall at home in Orebro, Sweden.

Seifkhani´s stablemate Croatian light heavyweight Marko Calic, 7-0, also scored a first round knockout and took out Jozsef Barai, 2-1.


In Hannover, on the undercard to Team Sauerland´s show topped by Mann vs Peil, Danish debutant Mahdi Jallaw, a very talented 18-year old, was upset by Artem Ayvazidi, 11-12-1, over four. It was a tough debut for Jallaw against a well schooled, seasoned veteran. Ayvazidi was for a few years based in Sweden then returned to Ukraine and was at one time 10-0.

Middleweight Oliver Flodin scored his fourth straight win as he outscored Georgian Nikoloz Gvajava over six.
