Enad Licina Was Willing To Replace Mckenzie, Face Marco Huck

By Per Ake Persson

British cruiserweight Ovill McKenzie has - as reported elsewhere - pulled out of Saturday´s fight in Frankfurt / Main against IBO king Marco Huck. That marks the second time in 2016 that McKenzie pulls out of an important fight.

He was all set to take on Dmytro Kucher for the vacant EBU title June 10 when sometime in May he pulled out with illness. McKenzie last fought in October 2015. For those who check boxrec.com McKenzie is listed to take part in a British title fight on the undercard to Klitschko vs Fury II on October 29.

As for Huck Promotions, there was apparently a last minute substitute available in Enad Licina, who was to have been featured in the second main event on the Frankfurt bill. Licina made it clear to boxwelt.com that he was ready to step in - if the money was right. However, Marco and his brother Kenan, who runs the company decided to cancel the whole show.

Sauerland Promotion announced that Erik Skoglund would fight Timmy Shala on October 28 in Nykoping (Sweden) and the deal was indeed done except for one thing: the special permission from the Martial Arts Delegation for fights longer than 12 minutes.

Today I was notified that the application for 12x3 had been turned down as it came in too late. The law - the Martial Arts Law -calls for applications to be made 60 days before fight date and apparently Sauerland was too late. There has been no comment from promoter Nisse Sauerland on how to handle this.
