The fight is promoted by Univent headed by Sebastien Acaries. Yunier Dorticos holds the WBA super championship.

In the co-feature Michel Soro (20-1-1) and John Vera (18-0) meet with the WBA interim super welterweight title at stake.

Zeuge another Sauerland paper belt holder like Braehmer and others. He’ll continue defending against nobodies and stay away from anyone in the top 10 or with a pulse

Soro/Vera and Merhy/Goulamirian are good fights. Feigenbutz/Liebenberg should be competitive. Zeuge must be the worst champ out there, draws with a Euro level fighter then barely beats him in the rematch to win the belt. Then is gifted a win…
