Fornling vs Boesel Now For Vacant WBA Interim Title at 175

The WBA have approved Sven Fornling (15-1-) vs Dominic Boesel (29-1), on November 16 in Halle an der Saale, for the now vacant interim light heavyweight world title. Boesel is ranked # 1 by the WBA while Fornling is # 3.  This SES promotion is billed as "Das WM Projekt" and there´s now two titles at stake.

Meanwhile Jean Pascal has been upgraded to WBA "regular" champion while Dmitry Bivol is "super" champion in the weight class.

Earlier this week the IBO, where Fornling is champion, gave the green light for the fight while the EBU refuse to sanction it but Boesel still holds the title.

Should Fornling beat Boesel and Badou Jack takes care of Jean Pascal on December 28 - we might have an all Swedish super-fight coming in 2020.

Bivol-Jack would be ok, but what is better for Bivol is to chase that WBO belt, there are Eleider Alvarez, Saul Alvarez and Gilberto Ramirez, he should fight one of them latin guys
