WBO # 2 cruiserweight Imre Szello, 22-0, headlines Felix-Promotion´s show in Budakalasz in Hungary on Feb 22 but who he is fighting isn´t clear yet.
Also on the bill is Swedish light heavyweight Oscar Ahlin, 16-2, and super welterweight Roman Zakirov, 8-0, who takes on Mexican Daniel Vega Cota, 13-2-1, for the vacant IBO International title.
As previously reported EBU heavyweight champ Agit Kabayel defends the title against Andriy Rudenko on March 2 at the Maritim Hotel in Magdeburg.
SES has since announced a co-headliner and in that one Tom Schwarz, 23-0, defends the WBO I/C crown against Kristijan Krstacic, 17-1, and there will be more heavyweight fights on the bill.
Norwegian light heavyweight Tim-Robin Lihaug, 19-4, takes on Timo Laine, 24-11, on a Pro Box Norway show on March 23 at the Sotra Arena. The fight is for the newly resurrected IBA and its Intercontinental title. Pro Box Norway is headed by former pro Thomas Hansvoll.
Promoters Nisse Sauerland and Mogens Palle are involved in a war of words in Danish media about the possibility of an all Danish showdown between female stars Dina Thorslund, WBO champ at super bantamweight, and Sarah Mahfoud, IBF I/C champ at featherweight.
Palle has made an public offer where the winner would get 360,000 DKK (about 55,000 USD) and the loser 240 000 (36,600 USD) and made it clear that this was a final offer.
NisseSauerland then came back with a counteroffer and wants the fight to go ahead in May. The most likely scenario is that the fight will take place but probably not until next year.
