Dimtrenko's Legal Rep Denies Client is Facing Shannon Briggs

By Per Ake Persson

German heavyweight Alexander Dimitrenko is, according to, not fighting former world champion Shannon Briggs on May 21 in London. Boxwelt quotes Dimitrenko´s legal representative Lukke Moerschner, who states that his client has never even been contacted in regards to fighting Briggs on David Haye's undercard.

According to Moerschner there have been no contact with Dimitrenko and Hayemaker Promotions nor any third part.

Dimitrenko already made a statement on his Twitter account on May 3 that he was not fighting Briggs but that was apparently lost in the media flow. Briggs vs Dimitrenko was first mentioned in some media late April.


Dimitrenko will however continue his career and fight later this year but when, where and against who is still open.

IN OTHER NEWS: Super welterweightss Orlando Fiordigiglio (24-1) and Brazilian Carmelito De Jesus (18-4) meet on July 16 in Sequals (Italy) with the vacant IBF Intercontinental title at stake.

In his last fight and latest visit to Italy De Jesus knocked out Stefano Castellucci in the fourth round.

Fiordigiglio suffered his sole loss against Cedric Vitu last year in a fight for the vacant EBU title and have racked up three straight wins since then.

The fight is promoted by Boxe Loreni headed by Mario Loreni.

Bizarre... nothing was ever signed here. Maybe he will be fighting one of the old domestic Brits instead.
