De Carolis vs. Richards in Play, Sofiane Oumiha Inks With Warren

German super middleweight Leon Bauer (17-0-1) has pulled out of the fight for the vacant EBU title against Giovanni De Carolis (28-9-1).

The date was February 20 in Rome. Buccione Boxing Team were the sole bidders for the fight and the offer was for 28,600 Euro and that may have something to do with Bauer pulling out.

New co-challenger for the title is Brit Lerrone Richards (14-0) and the EBU have set January 20 as the deadline for purse bids.

French amateur star and lightweight Sofiane Oumha will - finally one must add - turn pro and has signed with Frank Warren, reports French sources.

Oumha won silver in the 2016 Olympics in Rio and became a world champion in 2017.

Belgian Only O1ne Boxing Management stage a multinational show in Brussels on January 23 billed as Back to Business. There's at least ten fights on the bill as it looks now with super welter Jan Helin (7-0) and super middle Kamer Maloku (12-2) in the headliners.


Tanzania continues to keep the flag flying high for African boxing, as two World Boxing Federation (WBF) title fights headlines a card in Dar Es Salaam on January 29.

“Jackson Group Fight Night, January Edition”, promoted by Jackson Group Sports, will see local southpaws Ibrahim Class Mgender and Shaban Hamadi Jongo face tough opposition at the Next Door Arena.

In an intriguing clash for the vacant WBF Intercontinental Lightweight title, Class Mgender, 24-6 (11), squares off with undefeated South Africa-based Malawian Dennis Mwale, 8-0 (3).

While Mwale has never tasted defeat as a pro, Class Mgender clearly has an edge in experience, this being his eighth championship fight and his opponent fighting for his first title.

At Cruiserweight, Shaban Hamdi Jongo, 7-1-2 (6), takes a big step up in class when he faces American Shawn Miller, 18-5-1 (7), for the vacant WBF International title.

Jongo won the Tanzanian national crown in 2017 and has won five straight, but he has never been in with anyone with the pedigree of former WBF North America and International Light Heavyweight Champion, and two-time world title-challenger, Miller.

At least seven undercard bouts are planned, with plenty of international flavor, as Tervel Pulev (15-0) from Bulgaria and Lolita Muzeya (15-0) from Malawi among the interesting names reportedly set to appear in non-title fights.

Richards easily outboxes De Carolis to a wide decision

What a great oppertunity for Lerrone. I hope he takes it with both hands. Matchroom Italia could make a good show here.
