Sergio Garcia's defense of the EBU super welterweight title against Andranik Hakobyan on December 19 in Torrelavega (Spain) is off after Hakobyan pulled out with a claimed injury.

Maravilla Box, promoter of the show, has searched all over Europe for an opponent and finally found one in Frenchman Gregory Trenel (12-5-1) and it's now a non-title fight.

Another change on the show is that Swedish light heavyweight Oscar Ahlin (19-2) will now fight Czech Ondrey Budera (13-19-1) in a non-title eight rounder. Ahlin was all set to go in against Latvian Ralfs Vilcans with the vacant IBO I-C title at stake but he pulled out due to illness.

Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez (52-3-2( continues his comeback in the headliner and takes on Finn Jussi Koivula (24-7-1).

Christina "Lady" Hammer" (25-1) takes on Finland's Sanna Turunen (6-3-1) on December 20 in Cologne with the WBC interim female super middleweight title at stake and it's also for the WIBF belt. This fight was first set for October 31 in Munich but had to be postponed due to Covid-19.


French heavyweight veteran Johann Duhaupas (38-6) plans to continue boxing despite the first round TKO loss to Tony Yoka last time out. Duhaupas was floored twice and never got untracked. Manager Mehdi Ameur says that Johann wasn't there mentally and that the fight against Yoka was a mistake.

The 39-year old wants to fight Hughie Fury or Martin Bakole but will probably need a few wins before getting there.
