First former WBA secondary champ Mahmoud "Manuel" Charr (32-4) had Michael Wallisch (22-5) as the opponent for the headliner at "Die Bucht" in Hamburg, on May 28, but then EC Boxing booked what they said was a tougher opponent who couldn't make it to Germany due to some legal problems at home. Instead, Charr will now take on Nikola Milalic (21-2) in a scheduled ten rounder
"It is a tuneup for Charr, who after this will be ready to fight the winner of Joseph Parker-Joe Joyce or Daniel Dubois-Trevor Bryan," says promoter Erol Ceylan.
"We are doing the best we can to get started again after the pandemic and then we get this," added Ceylan, who in the last few days outside of the Charr fight has seen heavyweight Viktor Faust get injured in sparring and super lightweight Volkan Gokcek being forced to pull out due to illness.
As it is now, big heavyweight Ali Eren Demirezen (15-1) will fight veteran Kevin Johnson (35-18-1) while Christian Hammer (26-9) will fight Drazan Janjanin (22-34) in another heavyweight fight.
Michael Wallish is on the bill again and replaces Viktor Faust and is in against Toni Thes (19-11-1)
All in all there are six fights on the bill..
