Euro News: Johnson-Mikhalkin, De Carolis-Bauer, Schwarz Facing 10 Years

BBT (Buccione Boxing Team) were the sole bidder at the purse bids yesterday (Nov 30) in Rome for the fight between Giovanni De Carolis (28-9-1) and Leon Bauer (17-0-1) with the vacant EBU super middleweight title at stake. BBT came in with an offer for 28,600 Euro, Date and site is to be announced.

The winner of De Carolis and Bauer will have the former champ Tyron Zeuge as mandatory challenger. Zeuge had to relinquish the title due to an injury.

OPI since 82 won purse bids on November 30 for the fight for the vacant EU (it's noteworthy that an EBU subtitle gets more money than the main title as seen in the De Carolis vs Bauer fight) cruiserweight title between Italian Fabio Turchi (18-1) and Frenchman Dylan Bregeon (11-0-1) with an offer for 31,317 Euro. EuroProm bid 18,001 Euro. Date and site is to be announced.
...

EC Box Promotion will stage the fight between Igor Mikhalkin (23-2) and Callum Johnson (18-1) for the vacant EBU light heavyweight title. Date and site is to be announced. This fight has been postponed a number of times already with Matchroom as promoter.

With no new date coming EC insisted on taking the fight to purse bids and were the sole bidder with an offer of 89,000 Euro. It's a solid payday for Johnson but there might be even better paydays waiting on British soil, perhaps against Joshua Buatsi.

Heavyweight Tom Schwarz faces charges for assault in a German court, reports BILD. Schwarz is said to have beaten his ex-girlfriend Tessa during an argument on May 31 in Lostau. Tessa suffered serious injuries to her jaw.

Schwartz (26-1 with his sole loss to Tyson Fury) was promoted by SES up until this incident, but for what it's worth he's currently a free agent. If found guilty he could face up to ten years in jail.

Christian Hammer would have beaten Tony Yoka had he been in top shape, states EC Boxing's promoter Erol Ceylan and it's a fact that the Romanian heavyweight had to withdraw from a fight in the UK against Dave Allen due to a positive Covid-19 test in late October and signed for the Yoka fight once he had recovered. 

"Had Christian been in the same shape as he was against Luis Ortiz or Alexander Povetkin he would have beaten Yoka," adds Ceylan.

Hammer, for the record, lost widely on points to both Povetkin and Ortiz as he did against Yoka.

If Johnson were to fight & beat Mikhalkin then that adds some serious coinage to a Yarde or Arthur fight.

[QUOTE=Mammoth;20921875]Johnson imo always seemed like the UK version of Joe Smith. He's not super skilled but if you can't hold up to his power you simply can't win. If he had the right backing he could have picked up wins…

[QUOTE=Citizen Koba;20921869]That'd be my guess too, Mikhalkin's not unskilled but he's not that sturdy and he can't really bang... plus he's getting on. Callum could pretty much just bulldoze him.[/QUOTE] Johnson imo always seemed like the UK version of Joe…

[QUOTE=Citizen Koba;20921855]We'll have to see, €89k ain't loads but it's also not as terrible as you'd imagine for a euro strap, and through COVID time they might find it's worth it... well Callum might, pretty sure Mikhalkin will be jumping…
