Euro News: Kabayal vs. Dimitrenko, Culcay vs. Rodriguez, More

By Per Ake Persson

The deadline for purse bids or agreements for EBU heavyweight champion Agit Kabayel´s mandatory defence against fellow German Alexander Dimitrenko (41-3) that was set for today has been postponed until June 14.

Kabayel (18-0 / 20-2 take your pick) is promoted by SES while Dimitrenko is with EC Boxing.

On paper it´s a solid matchup - but it´s no secret that the once touted Dimitrenko has blown a lot more cold than hot as of late, despite his one round knockout win over Adrian Granat last year.
