Ulf Steinforth's SES will promote the fight for the vacant EBU heavyweight title between Agit Kabayel (21-0 or 23-2) and Marco Huck (42-5-1). When and where will be announced later.
There were purse bids scheduled today at noon (October 4) at the EBU office in Rome but the parties reached an agreement before that.
