Francesco Pianeta Faces Timur Stark on November 5

By Per Ake Persson

Former two-time world title challenger Francesco Pianeta (32-2-1) is now promoted by Petko´s LMS Box Promotion in Munich (Germany) and begins the long way back November 5 when he takes on the dangerous Timur Stark (a/k/a Musafarov, 8-2).

Musafarov impressed in Hamburg this weekend when he knocked out Christian Lewandowski. While small for a heavyweight, Timur has the heart of a lion and keeps coming and would be a tough opponent for most of the big boys on the European circuit.

Pianeta did relatively well against Wladimir Klitschko before getting stopped but flopped badly against Ruslan Chagaev and was knocked out in the first round.  In Stark he will get tested and needs to put it together to keep his career alive.

Also on the Munich bill is Avner Yilderim (13-0) vs Schiller Hyppolite (21-1).

Another Uzbek people and another loss? :P Whoever loses this match ends his professional career so I think the chances are equal. Good luck them both.
