Euro News: Joyce-Huck, Johnson-Mikhalkin, Braehmer, Helenius

The fight for the vacant EBU heavyweight title between Joe "Juggernaut" Joyce (10-0) and Marco Huck (41-5-1) will go ahead on January 11 in Hannover (Germany) - at least according to the EBU. The fight is promoted by Huck Service Gmbh (headed by Marco´s brother Kenan) who won purse bids October 16 with an offer for 480,000 Euro - but the date s not yet officially confirmed by Huck & Co and there is no venue announced either.

The EBU have a set for of rules for the procedure following a purse bid that aren´t followed very strictly but the norm is that date and site are announced two weeks after the purse bid date with the fight taking place inside two months from this date so one can imagine there is some pressure on the Huck brothers to get it together asap.

Turkish heavyweight Umut Camkiran (13-0) defended the vacant EE-EU title by stopping Mirko Tintor (15-4-1) in Istanbul Sunday night. Tintor is a decent fighter but tends to weigh in much too heavy and this fight was no exception as he weighed in at well over 300 lbs.

Igor Mikhalkin (23-2) and Callum Johnson (18-1) are now official challengers for the vacant EBU 175 lb title. The EBU have set December 10 as deadline for purse bids. The title became vacant when Dominic Boesel beat Sven Fornling to win the IBO and WBA interim titles, but Mikhalkin has been waiting for this chance for some time.

Heavyweight Robert Helenius returns to action in a low key comeback after the devastating loss to Gerald Washington in the summer: Helenius takes on Brazilian Mateus Roberto Osorio in Narva (Estonia) this coming weekend. Osorio has been seen in Europe before and anything but a KO win for the Nordic Nightmare would be a major upset.

After the Osorio fight, Helenius is already booked for a return to the United States but against who isn´t clear yet... trainer Johan Lindstrom says there are several good opponents being discussed including a rematch with Washington, where Helenius was ahead on points when staggered by a right hand and left himself wide open for a follow up and it was lights out.
