Norwegian light heavyweight Alexander Hagen (14-2-1) is currently in Las Vegas and has been sparring with IBF king Caleb Plant among others. Plant is scheduled to face Germany's Vincent Feigenbutz in the coming weeks.

Hagen is also co-challenger for the vacant EE-EU title along with Austria-based Kosovan Timy Shala (24-3-1). The EE-EU title is open for fighters outside the EU and is administered by the EBU, who have set February 24 as deadline for purse bids or agreements.

EBU super welterweight champ Sergio Garcia (31-0) defends the title against Frenchman Dylan Charrat (20-0-1) May 2 in Torrelavega (Spain) on a Maravilla Box promotion. It´s a mandatory defence by Garcia and his fourth defence of the title he won back in 2018. He´s ranked # 2 by the WBC and # 6 by the WBO.


Andoni Gago (22-3-3) defends the  EBU 126 lb title May 9 in Bilbao against official challenger Gavin McDonnell (22-2-2). It´s the first defence for the champion who beat Jesus Sanchez to win the title. McDonnell has previously been EBU titleholder but at super bantamweight.

On the undercard Kerman Lejarraga continues his way back, after back to back defeats against David Avanesyan last year. However, Lejarraga (29-2) must first get past Mexican Jose de Jesus Macias on February 29 in Iruna.
