Euro News: Smith-Skoglund, Werner Kirsch Passes, More

In a recent press release from the World Boxing Council announce the status of the super middleweight division, they wrote among other things that Chris Eubank Jr, Avni Yildrim and Callum Smith will compete for the WBC Diamond Belt as part of the World Boxing Super Series Tournament.

Well, just for the record Eubank vs Yildrim will go ahead with site/date to be announced and Callum Smith will not shadowbox his way to the title but take on Erik Skoglund on September 16 in Liverpool.

Skoglund is indeed the underdog in this one but he is a live underdog so don´t rule out an upset, so the WBC should show a little more respect towards the Swedish challenger

Belgian Fighting Competition will stage a big show at the Sportcomplex Schotte in Aalst (Belgium) on September 30.

Super welterweights Sasha Yengoyan (40-2-1) and Howard Cospolite (a misleading 15-6-2) clash for the vacant IBF I/C title. Cruiserweight Bilal Laggoune (21-1-2) was earlier in the summer announced as on for a fight against reigning EBU champ Yves Ngabu in an all-Belgian matchup but that fight is apparently now off. Who Laggoune will fight is not announced yet. Also on the bill is super middleweight Timur Nikarkhoev (15-2).

I think hearn should have to show all the fights, if I was a subscriber I'd want them to show them, because there's potentially some vgood semi finals. Smith should have fought degale, degale has the belt, casuals would have…
