Dimitrenko is Mandatory to EU Belt, Amar vs. Stieglitz Update

By Per Ake Persson

Finnish veteran Juho Haapoja (26-7-2) will again take on Hungarian puncher Tamas Lodi (18-7-2). The rematch tops a Loud´n Live promotion in Seinajoki September 17. Lodi won their first fight on a third round knockout.

Haapoja, who began his career as a heavyweight, then dropped down to cruiser and even light heavy but is now back at cruiser, will train in London under CJ Hussein. Juho have a long and tough career behind with and this may be his farewell fight.

Also on the bill in Seinajoki is another rematch and this between middleweights Ilias Achergui (6-2-1) from Belgium and Henri Kekalainen (8-3-0). Achergui won the first fight on a close, controversial decision.

British welter prospect Kian Thomas (5-0) is also on the bill.

Heavyweight Aleksander Dimitrenko (38-2) is mandatory challenger for the EU title currently held by Agit Kabayel (15-0). Dimitrenko was last mentioned as opponent for Shannon Briggs but denied having ever been contacted for the fight.

Dimitrenko held the EBU title 2010-12 and then lost to Kubrat Pulev in what also was a IBF eliminator. He´s won six straight since then but over rather soft opponents.
