Culcay vs. Saidi, Zeuge vs. Kanguel Set For November 23

The fight for the vacant IBA light heavyweight title between Norwegian Tim-Robin Lihaug (19-4) and Argentinian Ruben Eduardo Acosta (37-37-5), that was set for October 26 in Bergen (Norway), is off.

As to why it's off, well, the strict rules that regulate professional boxing in Norway prevents 40+ boxers to fight and Acosta, age 41, was thus nixed.

There is a possibility to make exceptions providing that the fighter in question undergo extensive medical check ups but in this case the answer was 'no.' Lihaug will now fight an opponent to be announced on March 7 next year.

Croatian light heavyweight Marko Calic (10-0) headlines a show at the Mate Parlov Sports Hall in Pula on October 26.

Calic takes on Ukrainan Serhi Zhuk on top of a pro-am bill. Calic was earlier this year in Canada to spar with Artur Beterbiev and is one to watch. He is promoted by Swedish Fight Life Promotions headed by Kamran Kabinejad.
