Euro News: Castano vs. Soro Rematch, Imre Szello, More

By Per Ake Persson

Unbeaten Hungarian cruiser Imre Szello, 24-0 and ranked # 1 by the WBO, destroyed Argentinean Juan Ezequiel Basualdo, former WBO Latino champ and 11-5-1, in two rounds in the headliner of Felix-Promotion´s show in Varpalota last night.

In other action super middleweight Mate Kis  WBO # 14 and 15-0-2, outscored tough veteran Geard Ajetovic, 31-22-1, and cruiser prospect Ferenc Urban, 6-0, stopped Kemal Dervoz, 2-1, in the second round.

The event was televised by Sport TV in Hungary.


If we stick with the cruisers, the situation with the WBA titles is a bit confusing or how about this: Don King Productions won purse bids for a fight between WBA regular champ Beibut Shumenov and interim ruler Arsen Goulamirian.

However, DKP have been unable the promote the fight and it appears that Goulamirian is upgraded to regular champ and is made mandatory challenger for the now vacant "Super" title along with Denis Lebedev, who apparently is back after being champion in recess.

As for Shumenov, word is that he is the new champion in recess. He has been inactive since winning the regular title a year ago.

Univent, headed by Sebastien Acaries, won purse bids for Brian Castano´s defence of the WBA super welterweight title against Michel Soro. Univent bid 810,770 USD while TGB Promotions came in second best with a bid for 350,000 USD. The purse split is 55-45 in favour of the champion and Univent will stage the fight July 20 in Marseille.

Castano won their first fight back in 2017 on a split decision.

French light heavyweight Mathieu Bauderlique (18-1) defends the WBA I/C title against still capable veteran Doudou Ngumbu (38-9) on July 18 in Le Cannet in an exciting matchup between two fighters at opposite ends of their respective careers.

Bauderlique, an excellent amateur, suffered an upset loss to Dragan Lepei for the only blot on his record while Ngumbu have been around for a long time now and was last time out seen losing to Oleksandr Govzdyk.

Also on this show is the rematch for the still vacant EU super welter title between Dylan Charrat (17-0-1) and Howard Cospolite (17-6-3).

The show is promoted by Asloum Event and billed as "No Limit Episode IX".

German-Turkish super lightweight Fatih Keles (11-0-1) is now in Australia where he takes on Liam Paro (16-0) at the Hotel & Casino the Star Gold in Broadbent. Paro is ranked # 3 by the WBO and Keles is # 12 and holds the WBO Euro title.
